At approximately 3:55 p.m. on April 28, 2011, Employee #1, a full-time, regular kindergarten teacher who had worked for a K-12 public school district for approximately 8 years, was working at an elementary school in Redlands, CA. Employee #1 and her aide had gone to the teachers' workroom to use the copier. They made 110 packets of 35 pages each. As they left the workroom to return to the classroom, the aide carried 100 packets and Employee #1 carried 10 packets (approximately 350 sheets).
