On the Day of Pictures (OCTOBER 13TH):

You will pull into the drop off lane at your designated time, and a volunteer will come to your car to get your child. PLEASE USE ZIPPER METHOD WHEN TURNING INTO PARKING LOT.

The student will then be added to one of the lines outside. For every student that comes out of the building, a student will be let in and will be placed in one of the inside lines. The lines, both inside & outside will be 6 feet apart, and while they are in line they MUST WEAR A MASK. Masks will be taken off for the actual picture and then they must be put back on after for them to exit the building.

Once they are done, they will return back to your vehicle and you can leave the parking lot. MAKING A RIGHT OUT OF THE PARKING LOT ON RODENBURG ONLY.

PARENTS PLEASE DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEICHLES. Someone will greet you and your child at your car. You must self certify that your child does not have COVID-19. Also, before your child exits the car, a no touch thermometer check will occur on each child’s wrist to ensure the child does not have a fever.
