#MASSPchat - Picture This!

The Topic:
One of the things I love about my job is that I get to visit schools and ISDs around the State. I enjoy seeing the innovative and creative things being done and I often tweet pictures which get a lot of likes and re-tweets. So this week is an opportunity to share pictures from your school of great things that are happening with different topics each day. I'm really looking forward to seeing what all of you have to share!

Why Am I Signing This Waiver?

Written by attorney Kevin Sutton, Partner at Lusk Albertson, PLC

Some things in life are certain – death, taxes, and pre injury liability waivers. These are all riveting subjects, but the last is particularly ubiquitous in our daily lives. From harrowing activities like skydiving, to more mundane events like playing in a sports league, you've probably signed at least dozens of these kinds of waivers in the past. And if you have kids, you have almost certainly signed plenty on their behalf as well for field trips, Boy/Girl Scouts, birthday parties, and the many other happenings on the endless carousel of youthful exuberance. But when it comes to your kids, what are you really waiving when you sign on the dotted line?

School Leadership Starts At Home

This year, the Carlson family finally all takes the same path in the morning. Now that my youngest is in kindergarten, my wife, three children, and I spend our days in the Sandusky Community School District. I know that many others have enjoyed this experience, but having it happen in our family has given me a new perspective. For starters, it is nice to know that the long hours I put in as Sandusky Junior/Senior High School principal have a direct impact on my family. More than this, having my entire family under the same “school roof” has motivated me to lead our school to benefit all families and taught me some valuable lessons.
