No protocol too big or too small, we write one for them all...
- Bus riding
- School arrival (Drop off and pick up)
- Office and nurse
- Not to mention safety in the classroom and of course instruction (Both in person and online)
A couple of requirements parents might be most interested in are:
Start time- It has changed to 9:30 for K-6 students.
Pre-K start time is at 9:10. Pre-K parents are the only adults allowed past the office between 8:55 and 9:10.
Drop off at 9:15- Other than Pre-K, no students are allowed in the building prior to 9:15. Students wanting to access the breakfast program will come in the main entrance. Grade 4-6 students not having breakfast will go come in the door by Mr. Mills' room and go directly to their classrooms. Students must wear masks until they are in their classrooms.
Pick up of student- Parents are not allowed in the school for pick up. Pre arranged early-pickup students will be escorted to the main entrance. Regular pick up will be at the same time at 3:35. Staff will be outside to orchestrate the connections. This will be clunky at first but we will all get the hang of it quickly.
At all times, every effort will be made to keep social distance. If it is not feasible, then masks will be required.
Online student schedules and instruction will be "case by case" with the classroom teacher.
That is a lot of information for now. More details will be forthcoming. One thing is certain, we will make changes and adapt as our plans evolve. I am so happy to have the kids back that even as restrictive as this is, it seems like a good start.
