Good morning,

Before we start working today, I’d like to remind you of this. As a supervisor who monitors the projects, make sure everything is in the place.  First, about the working hours.  Work starts at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.   Workers should remain in the area during nap period.  Punctuality is obligatory.  Second, you have to take good care all of the tools you used.  Don’t forget to put them   away when you have finished.  That’s all I want to say this morning.  Happy working.
