Arrival Doors for AM Drop Off

As you know, our students arrive at school via bus or parent/guardian car drop off. The students who are dropped off in the front of the school will enter doors based on their grade level. Kindergarten, 1st, and 3rd Grade students will enter the Main Front Doors.

2nd, 4th and 5th Grade students will enter Door #15 that is to the left when facing the school.

All doors will be propped open and a staff member will be present to welcome each student.


Our students who arrive via bus are dropped off in the back of the school where they are greeted by a staff member. They too, enter the school using various doors that are propped open and supervised by a staff member.


Don't forget, every student must have their COVID-19 Luggage Tag signed in order for them to enter school. If it is not signed, we will call their parents/guardians to ensure the COVID-19 Self Certification is complete and check our live spreadsheet showing who has self-certified via the App. If you need help or have questions, watch the video below or call the office.

3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Parents, Did you save the link on your phone? Are you ready to sign your students backpack luggage tag every morning?

This is the link you can add to your phone. Every child needs to have this filled out every day in order for them to enter the building. Don't forget to sign their luggage tag every morning as well. Thanks!

Face Coverings for all Visitors to our Campus.

Parents, D303 would like to ask that all parents/guardians who visit the Anderson campus wear a face covering while here at school. If you are walking your child to the front doors in the morning, or you are waiting outside the school for student pick up in the afternoon, please wear a face covering. Thanks! We want to model this behavior for our students and every little thing we do as a community can help us increase the probability of staying healthy.

D303 In-Person Learning: Phase 1 - Staggered Entry

Big picture

Note to parents:

During this unique time of educating students in both remote and in-person settings, we are making every effort to balance class sizes and maintain a sense of community for all our students. As parents continue to request changes for their children, impacting both remote and in person class size, we will need to continue to shift personnel and adjust the remote and in person classroom makeups. While continuity is our goal, these adjustments may result in changes in placements. We appreciate your patience as we work to provide meaningful educational experiences for all our students.
