Dear In Person/Hybrid Learning Families,

To ensure reasonable distancing and safety precautions, students will use the following procedures at the beginning and end of each day.

Elementary:

In the mornings:

  • We prefer students to be dropped off in the driveline of either the 4-5 building or the K3 building.  Please pull forward and roll down the window so we can take their temperature while they are still in the car.  
  • If parents want to park and walk their student to the school, please proceed to the line up areas behind the K3 building or between the K3 and 4-5 as described below.  No parents will be allowed in the building.  
  • K3 students will line up by teacher name behind the K3 building.  Teachers will begin to bring them into classrooms at 7:30.
  • 4-5 students will line up in the parking lot between the two buildings by teacher name.  Teachers will begin to bring them into classrooms at 7:30.

In the afternoons:

  • We will continue to use our driveline dismissal process as in previous years.  If parents choose to exit their vehicles to pick up their students in designated areas, masks will be required at all times and we ask that you observe social distancing.

 

Secondary:

In the mornings:

  • Since secondary school students arrive in a variety of ways, all 6-12th grade students will have their temperatures checked as they enter the building.  All students need to enter through the main entrance of the school.  
  • Students will enter the building and go directly to their first class of the day. Please encourage your child to avoid gathering in groups, as tempting as this may be.
  • Class will begin at the usual time (7:20 for middle school, 7:30 for high school). 
  • Current hybrid learning schedule - Last Name A-K - In Person Monday/Tuesday - Online Wednesday/Thursday
  • Current hybrid learning schedule - Last Name L-Z - In Person Wednesday/Thursday - Online Monday/Tuesday

 

In the afternoons:

  • Be aware that we do not have the resources to release students individually. We are releasing by grade level to minimize mass gatherings. Please encourage your child to practice social distancing while on school property. 
  • Consider arranging a plan with your family regarding when and where to meet. The following times are when students will be released. You don’t necessarily need to arrive at these times.
  • 6th grade will be released at 3:30
  • 7th grade will be released at 3:33
  • 8th grade will be released at 3:36
  • 11th and 12th grade will be released at 3:45
  • 10th grade will be released at 3:48
  • 9th grade will be released at 3:51

 

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work through these new routines.
