Thank You To All

With our return to full in-person learning comes many changes. Most of them have been in place now for a few days, and they seem to be working well. From Bus drivers to parents, students to staff, and custodians to School Resource Officers, we can't thank you all enough for your patience and your ability to be so flexible.

Each day we hope these changes become a little more routine, which can hopefully lead to a speedier process as time goes on. For now, if you see any ways for us to improve these processes that we haven't thought of yet, then please feel free to reach out to us.

Changes To Parent Pick-Up April 5th

When in-person learning started 5 days a week on April 5th, we anticipated a significant number of parent pick-up vehicles. Our plan is still to continue to have parent pick-up traffic go around behind the building in the same manner that it did this year in hybrid mode.

  • A staff member will be posted at the crosswalk where the driveway turns behind the building to direct parent pick-up traffic.

  • When our regular (see pink on the map) parent pick-up lane fills up, we will start using the lane closest to the building (see blue on the map).

  • The first lane will be closed with a cone when the second lane is opened. All cars in the first lane (pink) will pick up their children before the cars in the second lane (blue).

How can you help? Please help your child learn how to get into the vehicle by themselves if at all possible and please be patient. We will do our best to be efficient, but we must always prioritize safety. PLEASE DO NOT PASS ANYONE.

Please Bring Water To School

As has been the case all year, we are asking that students bring a water bottle to school each day since the water bubblers are not in service this school year. We have had some warm days already, and only anticipate more of them, so bring that water in!


Please find the updated MCAS calendar below. We will be communicating with Cohort C families about the logistics of MCAS during the week after school vacation.
