ARRIVAL / ENTRY & DISMISSAL

Please do not drop off your child before the designated times, as especially this year, due to safety reasons, there is no supervision before school starts.

REMEMBER HEALTH SCREENING TICKET!!

IMPORTANT:  All Families of grade K-5 students will be expected to practice social distancing during entry and dismissal. We have done our part by designating additional doors for entry, where many children report directly to their learning area and are supervised by support staff. Some classes will line up outside and be picked up by their teachers on most days. Outside areas are supervised by staff and may not be accessed by parents or family members. Please cooperate with this critical change in the entry and dismissal procedures. Orange cones will be set up to indicate these restricted areas. Social distancing markers and/or signs are posted or displayed for children to follow. Please discuss the purpose of these fence signs and floor markings with your children.

TRAFFIC SAFETY:  For safety reasons, do not stop your car directly in front of exits/entrances when dropping off your child as this creates a hazard for others. Park your vehicle legally and walk your child to the designated drop off spot. Older children may be dropped off BEFORE or BEYOND the exits, and are allowed to walk on their own to the designated drop off spots.

Critical Changes

  • We can no longer offer breakfast in the lunchroom. A cold grab and go breakfast is provided if a child requests this. We highly recommend students eat breakfast at home in order to limit any eating in school to the greatest extent possible.
  • We can no longer allow older siblings to enter through the same entrances as their younger brothers/sisters due to the guidance from the CDC and DOE around keeping cohorts separate to the greatest extent possible.

STAGGERED AND SAFE DISMISSAL

Students will be lined up and dismissed alphabetically by last name. Line spots will be assigned alphabetically by last name and anytime cohorts need to move from one space to another, (drills, exiting for lunch) they will travel in a single socially distant line and in the same assigned spot order based on last name.  All Dismissal patterns will mimic entrance patterns. Students will be released to parents or guardians at the same location they dropped them off.
