No, I know there will be no plan for tomorrow since the regular teacher is gone on a medical leave for a month or more and a long-term sub starts next Monday.

I thought a lot about it beforehand but I decided to email the assistant principal (it's a small district) and let him know that I plan to be clear about my expectations, consequences and rewards at the beginning of class but that I was hoping it would be permissible to send kids to the office they refused to comply. Actions speak louder than words. He said it sounded fine and would speak to the class beforehand.

I see two philosophies on this board. Keep the kids in the room at all costs/ Don't take misbehavior personally and send out the offenders after one or more warnings. One teacher I know said she would never contact an administrator, just suffer. I hope I made the right choice.
