WHITELEY WILDCAT UPDATE
September 25, 2020
It was wonderful having students back in the building this week! The students did an amazing job adapting to in-person learning and understanding all of the different procedures that we need to follow. Our first and second grade teachers are eagerly waiting for the anticipation of our next group of students. We ask that parents send in an additional mask for any unforeseen incidents. As each group rolls into learning, I am sure we will find some different ways we can fine tune our procedures and we appreciate your patience as we do this together.
IN-PERSON PROCEDURES AND TIPS
I am sure our in-person learners are excited to be coming back. There are some procedures we would like to share with our families. We are also asking that parents consider sending an additional masks with their child to school. This will allow students to have a back-up mask for those unexpected occurrences. Below are some procedures we would like our families to help with:
-Supervision does not begin until 8:35, this is when we will begin to allow students into the building.
-Please have your child’s lanyard on and signed. Students need to have their lanyard signed for entrance into the school.
-Please pull all the way forward to allow for a continuous flow of cars.
-Parents will need to remain in their car when their student(s) exit the vehicle.
-Children need to be ready to exit the vehicle, with their backpack and lunch bag ready when you pull into the parking lot.
-Students must have their mask on when exiting the vehicle.
-All students will have their temperatures checked and will sanitize their hands upon entry.
-We ask that students remain an airplane arms length away from others.
-Students riding the bus will have an assigned seat the entire year.
-Students must wear their mask on the bus.
-Students will have their temps taken prior to entering the building.
-Students will sanitize their hands prior to entering the building.
-Students must wear their lanyards and staff will ensure there is a parent signature on the card inside the lanyard.
-Students will begin dismissing at a staggered time to ensure social distancing.
-Students will load buses immediately and sit in their assigned seats.
-Students that walk home or ride their bikes will be dismissed at 3:25.
-Students that are car riders will be lined up in sections .
-Parents will pull their cars up in the car line, and remain in their vehicle.
-Staff will call students to the car and students will walk to the car maintaining social distancing.
-Once students are safely loaded into the car, parents may pull-out of the carpool line safely.
Breakfast is part of a relief effort related to Covid 19. This offering is for all students, regardless of need. The program runs from the first day of school until December 31, 2020. While in-person learning is occurring, each student will receive five days worth of breakfast at the end of the day on Monday. As our nutritional service department works to estimate the number to prepare, we would appreciate families completing this form if they are interested in receiving breakfast when your child begins in-person learning.
