2020-2021 School Year Information
This will look quite different from last year as we work through the challenges associated with COVID-19 and social distancing. Please read the message below in its entirety to understand the changes that will be implemented.
• If your child is showing any signs of illness, please keep them at home.

(The exceptions to this rule are wearing masks that supports higher education, for example, a college team, high school, or NCES, or a mask with your child’s name/initials.)
• Students need to bring a water bottle with them each day. Label it clearly with their name.
• Visitors are not allowed in the building during the school day. If you need to check your child out, you may report to the office. Please ensure your child has lunch boxes, backpacks homework etc. before leaving home.

• The late bell rings at 7:45 a.m. daily.
• Bus - Please arrive at your bus stop 15 minutes before your pick up time in the morning and 15 minutes after drop off in the afternoon.
• Car Rider Tags – You received one at Verification day and a second one on your students first day back to school. Be sure to have this displayed as you pick up your child each day from the car rider line.
To ensure the safety of our students, we would like to inform you of our drop off and pick up procedures.

• Parents will not be allowed to walk students in the building.
Afternoon Pick Up
• Buses and daycares will pick up in the back loop.
• All car rider KDG, first and second grade students and siblings will be picked up in the front loop.
