I am a face-to-face student. What will happen when I arrive on campus?
- Whether you ride a school bus or are dropped off on campus, your temperature will be taken by one of several teachers on duty. If your temperature is 99° or greater, you will be asked to report to the school nurse at a nearby table so that she can verify your temperature. If the nurse verifies that you indeed have a temperature of 99° or greater, you will be required to call your parents/guardians to tell them that you have to be checked out of school.
- If you pass the temperature check, you will report to the hand sanitizing table to sanitize your hands prior to entering the building.
- After sanitizing your hands, you will enter the building and observe social distancing while climbing the stairs. When you arrive at the top of the stairs, you will grab a bagged breakfast and immediately report to your first period teacher's classroom.
