TUESDAY'S NEWSDAY 36
May 25, 2021
From Principal Hammond
As Dr. Harrison shared at the end of last week, students are able to take off their masks during socially-distanced outside play at recess as well as during physical education classes.
This is coming from recent guidance from the state. We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure our children safety at all times.
This will be a great opportunity for the students to take a mask break as the weather gets warmer.

EARLY STUDENT PICK-UP
In SCHOOL DISMISSAL MANAGER (SDM), If you select an early dismissal to pick-up your child(ren), please pick-up your child(ren) by 2:00pm from our vestibule. On a PLANNED early dismissal (such as our upcoming conference days), please pick-up your child(ren) by 12:00pm.
All exceptions in SDM must be made by you by 1:30pm on full school days, and 11:30a on PLANNED early dismissal days. That is the cut-off times for any and all changes. Reports are sent to the teachers at the cut-off time. Teachers will share the information at the end of the day in the classrooms as to what ALL students are doing at dismissal time.
We begin our dismissal process much earlier this year. Pick-ups near our dismissal time affects not only the student dismissal process but staging of our buses and available parking for you.
We appreciate your attention to adhereing to these LATEST pick-up times for students.

CAR TAGS FOR DISMISSAL

Thank you -
Some of our students are signing into a Zoom session and are being directed to the class they previously attended that day. To fix this issue, students should get into the habit of clicking the LEAVE button at the end of each class. Our teachers will also click the END MEETING FOR ALL button to help us work through this common issue. For additional support, please reach out to Pattianne Nordt, our Technology Assistant (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Rebecca Richards, our Science, Technology Integration Coordinator (email@example.com).

Arrival & Dismissal
Parents/Guardians who are dropping off students in the morning, or picking up students in the afternoon are asked to remain in their vehicles during this process. We will have staff on hand ready to support during these transition times. If you are dropping off your child in the morning please be sure their mask is on and backpack is ready BEFORE you pull up to the drop off location, so that we can quickly and safely transition kids out of vehicles and into the building.
Due to the current health and safety precautions in place, we are limiting visitors in our building to essential business only. If you need to come to the school to pick up your child, please be sure you have a government issued ID on you for entry each and every time. Even if we recognize you, we will ask for your ID. This is our policy.
Traffic SafetyPlease be reminded to follow all traffic rules while driving in our parking lots and around RES, including stopping at stop signs and adhering to the speed limit. Cars may not travel into the bus loop during arrival and dismissal.
School Dismissal Manager
If there are changes to your child's dismissal plans, remember to log in to School Dismissal Manager to update with the new plans. A reminder that 'bus' is the default for all students. Distribution of a student pick up number tag, or the data from the summer survey does not automatically inform us that your child is a pick up.
