Please accept this reminder that teachers and other educators should not be discussing the Work to Rule with students, parents, or anyone else during paid work hours. Further, any conversation with students at school or during a school-rated activity should be avoided whether on paid status or otherwise.
In situations where it is unclear whether such a conversation might be inappropriate, please err on the side of caution and do not engage.
