Getting Back to School!

09/11/2020

Dear Trumbauersville Families,

On behalf of all of our school staff, I want to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year!


As you know, this summer has been full of extensive work adjusting procedures to align with our QCSD Health and Safety Plan. Three key parts of that plan include wearing face masks at school, maintaining adequate social distance, having good hand-washing and sanitation practices, and monitoring our health each morning before school. To make the start of this year a success, it is imperative that our entire school community come together to around these healthy practices.


This year, our students will be in our school via different avenues: hybrid or virtual. Either way, they attend, they are at the center of our class and we are working to ensure that each student has strong connections and relationships with their peers and with their school work. Please enjoy the messages from each grade level in the section below!


Understanding that this school year brings opportunities that are different from previous years, our QCSD Office of Teaching and Learning has compiled an extensive resource for students and families. We hope that this QCSD Students and Families Supports page will help make the start of the school year and the continued navigation of hybrid and virtual learning a success for everyone in our QCSD community!


It is with great anticipation and excitement that we are looking forward to seeing the students on Monday!


Kindly,


-Adam

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Dear Families:


If you are driving your child to or from school, enter the car parking lot and proceed to the student drop-off area. Please pull forward to the end of the drop-off area so that cars behind you can also move into the area.


During morning drop-off, when your child is safely on the sidewalk, please pull forward and leave the drop-off area. A problem develops when parents sit in their cars and wait until the child enters the building. If you choose to watch your child enter the building, you will need to move from the drop-off area and park your vehicle.


Do not park or leave your vehicle running in the drop-off area (even for a short time) because it creates a backlog of cars that need to circulate through the loop. If you need to come into the building, even for a few moments, please park your car in the lot.


Children should exit the vehicle from the passenger/curb side. This will help to keep the through lane clear and the children safe.


Student arrival time ends at 9:00 AM so there is a 15-minute window of time from 8:45 to 9:00 for students to be dropped off. If your child arrives after the bell rings for classes to start, they should stop in the office for a tardy slip.


Hopefully, with everyone’s cooperation, we can keep the flow of parking lot traffic moving safely.

New Arrival Procedure for 2020-2021

Students will be asked to enter and leave through designated sides of the door in the front entrance. A and B Pod (Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd graders) will be asked to enter and exit through the left side of the doors. C and D Pod (3rd, 4th, 5th graders) will enter and exit through the right side of the doors. Please prepare your students by showing them the photo.


Additionally, much like when we had the Return of Student Items pick up, we are requesting that families follow the same traffic pattern as that day. This is so that traffic keeps following and does not back up Woodview Dr as our parent drop off volume will be increased this year.


We are requesting that you turn right at the stop sign when leaving the parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.

Do you plan on picking up your child at the end of the day?

We know that a lot of you are not taking the Levy Bus transportation this year which will mean there will be an increase in parent pick up requests. We are requesting that you make the office aware of your transportation needs as soon as possible to be ready for the first day of school.


If you are picking up your student every day for the entire 2020-2021 school year, please email Mrs. Haslett at ehaslett@qcsd.org and make this request in writing. The email should say something like:


“Dear office staff, I am going to be doing parent pick for the entire 2020-2021 school year, please put -insert student name- on the parent pick up list for daily parent transportation”


The office will add your student (s) name to the parent pick up list. Please note that if this should change at any time, you are responsible to contacting the school office to make new arrangements.


If you are picking up your students randomly throughout the school year, please email the office the day of the pick up request. If you get a reply back from the school office, you can be assured that your student (s) will be on the parent pick up list. If you do not receive a reply from the school office, please call the office at 215.529.2550 to ensure that we get your transportation request. Please do not leave voicemails with transportation changes, continue to call the office until you reach a person that can help you.

Car Rider Tags/Link to Dismissal Procedure for your reference

Dismissal will be the same process as last year, expect that, same as arrival, we are asking you to turn right out at the stop sign when leaving the parking lot.


If you are new student, please print a temporary car tag for your window for the first day you student comes to school. Previous Trumbauersville students will use their car rider tags from last year. If you require new tags, please reach out to the office. New students will get 2 car rider tags on their first day of school. This will replace the temporary tag that you printed for the first day which will no longer be accepted as an official pick up tag.


Parents can either use the drop off/pick up circle for dismissal or if you chose, you can park and walk up to the cafe doors and wait outside under the pavilion for your student.
