A few reminders!
When entering the parking lot in the morning, if there is no officer there to guide cars in, PLEASE take turns turning into the lot. We need to have both lines turning in to avoid a back-up on either side of Palm Valley Road.
Please, please, please, pull all the way up close to the car in front of you! This not only helps us unload more cars, but also helps us get more cars off the street.
For afternoon carpool, please do not come earlier than your OLDEST child's release time. Middle school parents, your child's last class ends at 3:05 PM. Please do not come prior to that or they will be missing class time and we will have you circle back around the carpool line.
If you arrive early, please do NOT park along the fence. If you need to park please use one of the designated parking spaces in the lot.
During severe weather, we will not be using the holding area, and will only load 6 cars at a time. If your child does not come down in time, you will need to circle back around the school. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we need to keep our students and staff safe at all times. Thank you for understanding.
During times of lightning storms or tornado warnings, we will suspend carpool until it is safe to continue, as we did last Monday.
Please do NOT turn into the neighboring communities or businesses to make a u-turn when you leave our campus! This causes more congestion in the carpool line and can be dangerous. Please continue to A1A to turn around safely. We had someone from the Tabby Building down the street call on Friday saying that someone turned around in their lot and almost hit an employee.
Anyone who tests positive must stay at home for 5 full days before returning to school on Day 6, provided that there has been no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines and that other symptoms are improving. (Please note that the first day of symptoms is considered Day 0.)
Siblings of positive cases may continue coming to school as long as they are not exhibiting ANY symptoms. Please use good judgement when sending siblings to school based on the amount of exposure they have had with the positive sibling.
Home projects for September will be sent home later this week by your child's teacher. Please be watching for that information!
