Welcome back to In-person Learning
August 26, 2020
It's almost here!
A Note from Nurse Amy-
Please make sure you pay close attention to the readmission to school after sickness in the AISD mitigations and procedures document linked in the bottom of this smore.
I do anticipate our dismissal time will take a few minutes longer than usual at first. Please be patient.
The other big change is we are not allowing parents to park in the school parking lot and walk up to the door to pick up or drop off their child. Please plan to walk/bike from home, or say goodbye at the sidewalk/crosswalk/bike rack.
Our doors will open for students from 7:30-7:45 each morning.
Kinder students- Day 1
When you come to pick up your child, or supplies, please have the tag visible in your car so we may call your child or load materials as quickly as possible.
Students arriving by car:
Our 4 side doors will open for students from 7:30-7:45, and they will go directly to their classroom. Staff will be in the hallways from 7:30-7:45 to help guide them to their new classroom on the first day. After that, staff will be in the hallways to ensure social distancing and help students navigate one-way hallways and stairwells.
Students arriving by bus:
Our bus students will enter the building through the cafeteria door.
Students wishing to purchase breakfast will go to the cafeteria, buy their breakfast, and take it to their classrooms to eat.
Students riding their bikes:
If your child is riding a bike, they may ride it to the bike rike, park it, and enter the building. Please do not congregate by the bike rike.
Parents may walk their child to the front porch maintaining 6 feet between families and hug and go so students may enter the building. Your walker can also walk in any of the side doors in the morning to enter the building, but we ask that parents stay 15 feet from the door.
Walkers and bike riders:
If your child is a walker, they have 3 options of where they will be escorted. 1- Limestone, 2- front yard by the marquee, 3-out the playground gate behind the school to the trail. We will be escorting them to these locations at 2:50.
Bike riders will be escorted to their bike rack and sent on their way.
All families will be assigned a number and receive a tag on the first day of in-person learning. You will display this number so that your students are able to be called quickly and escorted to your car. Staff will see your car tag number, call the student, and they will meet you at your vehicle. This might take a little longer than usual, so please be patient with us. All of this is for your child's safety.
(for the first day, we will just be doing the best we can with calling last names, if you would like to write your child's (last name, the first name) on a piece of paper and hold it in the window, that would help us tremendously!)
Kinder-2nd (plus siblings) will pick up on the amenities side.
Kinder and first grade will be waiting inside the building and we will call their number for them to walk to the designated zone to be dismissed.
3rd -6th will be picked up on the limestone side, wearing masks and spaced out.
School supplies/school issued chromebook
Students will still be utilizing google classroom for some assignments, but not all assignments when face to face.
Please don't worry about sending your child with ALL of the purchased school supplies day 1. Your teacher will communicate what they need to bring on day 1.
New Allen ISD policies in response to COVID
- ALL students, no matter the age, will be required to wear a mask while on the school bus.
- Students will be using hand sanitizer when loading/unloading.
- All students will have an assigned seat while on the bus
- All buses will be sanitized at least 2 times per day
Not new, but just a reminder, K-2 students are required to be met at their bus stop by a parent/guardian/adult family member. If there is no one there to meet them, they are returned to campus until you can be contacted.
We will be providing ALL students with a mask to keep on their lanyard to wear. K-3 is encouraged to wear them during hallway and transition times.
We will be enforcing the mask policy for 4th-6th graders.
Students will be allowed to take face coverings to eat and when outside when socially distanced.
All staff will be wearing a face covering.
Single-serve trays and utensils will be used each day. (No ice cream at this time due to going touchless in the cafe line)
Students will wear their ID card on the blue lanyard sent home with materials on the August deployment day to buy their lunch. There is no more keypad to enter their lunch number due to COVID. Please send them with their ID on the first day. It will stay at school.
Students will need to make plans to bring their lunch from home or buy from the cafeteria. We are not allowing outside food to be delivered or dropped off. If your student forgets their lunch, they will need to buy lunch from the cafeteria that day.
