Drop Off Procedures and Pick Up Procedures

We loved our drop off and pick up doors last year, so even though there will be no wellness checks, we found it easier to have children come to different doors. They are as follows:

Students in Pre K will enter and exit through Door A.

K-2 will enter and exit through Door C

Grades 3 and 4 will enter and exit through Door B

Grades 5-8 will enter and exit through Door E.

Extended Day students will enter and exit through Door F.

We ask that your review our drop off and pick up procedures.

We are pleased to once again offer extended day for our children. Please see the below link for all of the information you will need.

The first day of extended day is Friday, August 20, 2021.
