2nd Grade: Back-to-Campus (Hybrid) – Week of February 1st


Back-to-Campus Information

from the 2nd Grade Teachers



Fully charged school ipad (they should bring to and from school daily to have at school and at home)

School Books/ folders, etc…

Students will need to bring some things to/from school in their backpacks due to the hybrid situation requiring them to use supplies both at school and home, including journals, folders, planners, and workbooks. However, we will be making adjustments in order to ease the load students will have to carry. 
Since the math book is heavy and bulky, Mrs. Amos has decided to allow students to rip out only the needed pages so they don’t have to carry the whole book back and forth. 
We will also be posting the religion pages so students can tear out those rather than bring the book. (Parents will likely need to assist in ripping the pages). 
For ELA, we will make a consistent effort to not require the mybook, handwriting book and the journal on the same day. We will be specific about exact materials/folders are needed and page numbers on Powerschool (PSL), so if it’s not listed, students should assume they don’t need the book/item. 


School Supplies…

They will be able to keep basic school supplies at school if they have duplicates at home (markers, scissors, silent reading books, etc). The desks won’t be able to open due to the plexiglass, so students will need to only store essential items at school as they will have to rely on the tops of their desks and seat sacs on the back of the chair. 
In terms of requested supplies, students will only need wipes and tissues for their own personal use. We won’t be using things communally, so no need to donate supplies to the class. (Personal wipes/ tissues can stay at school on the student’s desk or in their seat sack). 


Free Time Materials…

A silent reading book (can be left at school if desired)

Free draw notebook or coloring book (can be left at school if desired)



With Gratitude, 2nd Grade Team

DK-2nd Grade: Back-to-Campus Information from Administration


Back-to-Campus Information

from School Administration

SchoolPass App

  • The “Welcome” letter from SchoolPass (click here) was sent to all DK-2nd grade families via email before the Christmas holidays (click button at bottom of post to view). If you have not already done so, please download the app so that you are ready to complete the Health Assessment each morning before bringing your child to campus. A green check mark means your child may come to school. A red X means that your child must remain at home that day.  Try it out prior to Monday as a trial run for next week. It is user-friendly.  We will have a paper form as a back-up, just in case you run into any problems. Feel free to email Mayora Hiney Mayora Hiney at mhiney@sp-apostle.org. with any questions or if you need assistance with the app.  

Drop Off & Pick-Up

First Drop-off Window   7:30 – 7:45 a.m. – Drop-off time for Grades 1-2

Second Drop-off Window   7:45 – 8:10 a.m. – Drop-off time for DK – K

First Pick-up Window   2:15 – 2:30 p.m. – Pick-up time for DK – K

Second Pick-up Window   2:30 – 2:45 p.m. – Pick-up time for Grades 1-2

If you have one student in the first window and one in the second window for both drop-off and pick-up, please use the SECOND window.

Please be respectful of the drop-off and pick-up windows. We are trying to keep the wait to a minimum and adhering to the schedule is a critical part of that.

Wellness check

  • You will need to download the app to submit the wellness check each day.  Please have this app ready go prior to Monday.

General information for drop-off and pick-up:

  • Please enter the school/church driveway from the south (driving north from Santa Monica Boulevard) so that you can make a right hand turn into the driveway.  There are no left turns allowed from the Selby entrance.
  • Remember to fasten your child into the passenger side of the car. 
  • Please have a picture of the wellness check completion screen for each student on the driver’s phone.  The easiest way to do it is to screenshot the green “WELLNESS STATUS.”
  • All drop-offs and pick-ups are via car only.  Walk-ins prohibited at this time.
  • No cell phone usage once you pull into the driveway.
  • Keep it slow — 5 MPH on campus.
  • Follow posted traffic flow directions.
  • There will be four/five car unloading/loading stations.
  • Four/five cars will enter a given station.
  • When you pull into the unloading/loading point, turn your car off, exit your vehicle, and help your student in/out of the car.
  • Please limit talking with TAs and/or teachers so the car line flows continuously.
  • ALL four cars will proceed out TOGETHER after loading/unloading.
  • Please be patient – the process will get more efficient over time.

Everyone will receive two rearview mirror hang tags for pick up when you arrive on your first morning. If you need extras or have any questions, contact Mayora Hiney at mhiney@sp-apostle.org.

Uniform Policy

  • Students must wear the St. Paul the Apostle School uniform.  Please refer to the Uniform Template for guidelines.

Mask Policy

  • All of our students must wear a face mask while on campus. The masks may be removed when students are eating snacks/lunch, and when it is “rest time.”


  • We currently do not have a hot lunch program on campus. Please pack snacks, a lunch, and water for your child. Clearly label all of your child’s belongings (backpacks, lunch pails, water bottles, etc.) so that these items can be sent home with your child at the end of each day.

Heath & Safety Agreement (Required by 2/1)

  • If you have not already done so, please review the Health and Safety Agreement (click here) that you received before the holidays, sign the last page, and return it to Principal Pinkofsky before next Monday, February 1st. This can be done via an email attachment to Cheryl Crump at ccrump@sp-apostle.org.

Help To Make In-Person Learning Possible

  • We respectfully request your support and cooperation in helping us to maintain the health and safety of everyone in our school community. By not participating in large group gatherings and wearing a mask when you are out in public, you will be doing your part to help us mitigate and reduce the risk of spread that is associated with the COVID-19 virus. Your positive actions regarding this matter will help us to ease the concerns that have been expressed by some members of our school community.
