Duties? Tell me yours!

Taking a poll! Please tell me what duties you have at your school! We have extra duties and wonder if we are way different than other schools or not.
elementary school-
- 25 minutes watching kids before school starts 1 week per quarter
- bus duty 1 week per quarter
- recess duty 25 min every third day

Other staff does morning and lunch cafeteria duty


  1. Lunch Duty 25 minutes (once a week)
    Recess Duty 15 Minutes (once a week)
    Car/Bus Duty 10-15 Minutes (everyday)

  2. We don't really have any...but then we always have to stay with our kids in the lunchroom. =) And then we have to walk the bus riders and car riders to their areas, but I don't really count that since it is still before it is time to dismiss (if that makes sense =)

  3. We have morning yard duty on a rotation between 25 teachers; we also have after school gate duty - same rotation; occasionally we have to do bus duty. Lisa

  4. I have either lunch or recess duty 30 minutes a day. It switches each week.

    I also have bus duty once a week.

    Office staff and paraprofessionals do the morning duty.

  5. Four to five weeks out of the year I have early morning duty...which is taking K students into the art room at 7:30 and watching them until the teacher picks them up @ 7:50-7:55. My Principal is good about not scheduling times back to back...but spreads your weeks throughout the school year.

  6. I have a fifteen minute morning recess duty one day a week. I eat in the lunchroom every day with my first graders (30 minutes) and I have after school bus duty on the day I have morning recess duty. This year I have recess duty on Monday which I love since I get to get it out of the way at the beginning of the week.We have paras that do alot of our other duties. :)

  7. Morning duty once a week for 30 minutes
    Recess duty every day for 30 minutes
    We used to switch lunch and recess every other day, but the 4th grade teacher doesn't like to go out to recess so she does lunch and the 1st and 2nd grade teacher and I do recess everyday.
    Monitor gym class for 30 minutes once a week every other week
    After school duty once a week for 15 minutes

  8. Hmmm...let's see. We have duty anywhere from every 2 to 3 weeks. We have either a morning or an afternoon duty for the whole week. The duties rotate throughout the year. In all, I think we have duty 13 times in the year. Recess and lunch is free from duty for us!


  9. We have 2 weeks of morning duty every quarter watching the kids for 15 minutes before school starts. We rotate recess duty MWF one week and T TH the next week. We eat lunch with our kids every day in the classroom. The music and PE teachers have bus duty thankfully!

  10. We have morning duty once a week (twice a week every 4th week)for 35 minutes, we always eat lunch with our kids(curious about those that have lunch "duty" does this mean you're watching other classes or you just monitor your own)and we are responsible for our own classes during our 15 minute recess.

  11. I have morning duty every Tuesday for 20 minutes.
    I have lunch duty every day, but Tuesday.
    I have recess with my kids every day but Tuesday!

  13. At our school teachers have duty every other week, they have the same duty either bus, car rider, or hallway. Then they have to rotate late days for the extra students. The assistants have duty in the morning and have every fourth week off.

  14. We have duty every other week. Lunch recess...about 20 minutes every day. And Bus or Car duty every other week.
