Tweet your way through Latin Day – @CTStateLatinDay, #CSLD
CSLD is right around the corner, and here is the last Rule Reminder!
Rule #7 : Chaperone Responsibilities:
(aka We Can’t Do This Without You!)
All teachers and chaperones are assigned supervisory duties throughout the day at CSLD. It is the teacher’s responsibility to inform all chaperones about their duties before arriving at Holiday Hill. Teachers and chaperones are expected to arrive to their duties on time and fulfill said duties throughout the entire scheduled time.
That’s right, we can’t! I know it looks like Holiday Hill has everything covered. It really is quite something, the way they handle the athletics and flip out a never-ending supply of burgers and ice cream. But all the other activities are run by us, the Latin teachers. Every workshop, every presentation, every contest is supervised, judged, and monitored by us.
Because of this, it is so important that every chaperone show up on time for their assigned role. When a chaperone is missing or late, CSLD organizers have to scramble to find that teacher while keeping students occupied and safe. Sometimes this only takes a few minutes, othertimes it takes longer and the event must be cancelled. A missing chaperone affects two activities: theirs and the one from which the organizer is pulled. This means disappointed students and teachers alike.
Please review your supervisory duty (listed in your CSLD packet) before the big day and make sure your school’s chaperones are there on time. If you are not sure what to do, or if you forget your job, come on down to the Hospitality Tent and we will help you.
4. Bags and Backpacks: Students are NOT allowed to bring bags or backpacks of any kind into Holiday Hill.
For the safety and well-being of all students, teachers, and staff, NO student is allowed to carry a backpack or bag onto Holiday Hill property. Holiday Hill and CSLD does not have the staff to search incoming bags and backpacks for weapons, drugs, alcohol, or other potentially hazardous items.
Any student who does come off their bus with a bag will be instructed to place it on a bag-holding bus at the bus parking lot. CSLD and Holiday Hill are not responsible for property left on this bus, so the best way to ensure that property is safe is to not bring it to CSLD. Of course, if your bus is staying with you all day, your students may leave any bags on your own bus, however, students will not be allowed to access the buses during CSLD.
We look to our teachers and chaperones to help enforce this safety policy. To eliminate confusion and delay, please tell your students in advance that backpacks and bags are not permitted.Remind them that Holiday Hill provides everything they need for the day, including towels for the pool. Everything is paid for, so they will not need money. Students who carry medication can make arrangements to wear clothing with pockets or place the item in the sinus of their toga. There is also a Nurse’s Office where medication may be dropped off.
Thank you for helping to keep Latin Day safe for everyone! If you have any specific questions, please contact the CSLD Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
Students at CT State Latin Day will find that they are turned away from workshops or told they are not cool enough to participate in our sporting events if they are not wearing proper attire—a tunica, that is!
That’s right, everyone’s wearing tunicae. From New York’s Fashion Week to Connecticut State Latin Day, you really can’t participate unless you are tunicatus!
Tunicae are easy to make and are required wear for all students attending Latin Day. If you need some help making a tunica, click HOW TO MAKE A tunica. However, tunicae can be as unique as the people who wear them, and the good folks at CSLD encourage creativity.
Some exceptional institutions of learning show off their school spirit by making special school tunicae and entering our Tunica Contest.
Watch out for the Tunica Police! If they catch you wearing something amazing, you will be given a token of our esteem. But . . . if they catch you in barbarian attire, prepare yourself for a stern talking-to.
As this year’s Latin Day approaches, we’d like to remind you of the CSLD rules.
Come back soon for more Rule Reminders!
