REMINDERS: First Day of School Instructions

Hello Third Graders and Parents! We wanted to forward the information from Principal Pinkofski’s newsletter regarding the first day of school. There are some exceptions to drop-off times, locations, etc. Keep in mind this only applies to Tuesday, August 24.

Wellness Check

Don’t forget to complete the Wellness Check on SchoolPass before you arrive on campus. Contact Mayora Hiney at if you have any issues logging in.

Drop-Off Locations

Drop-off is from 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.There will be two drop-off options for the first day of school.

Park in the neighborhood (not along Selby Avenue) and walk in through the front entrance. Proceed directly to your child’s classroom.  (There will be “relaxed” parking on Tuesday from 7:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.)

Pull up in front of the school and drop your student off with one of the SPA staff members on Selby. There will be several people available to help get your students out of the car. The students will walk up the front steps and proceed to their classrooms.

Parents will need to leave campus at 8:00 a.m. so that we can begin the school day. Please leave campus through the playground to avoid adding to the walk-in traffic around the classrooms. The PWC will be hosting a Back-to-School Coffee social in the Parish Center beginning at 7:45 a.m.

COVID Testing

COVID testing of faculty, staff and students will begin Tuesday. Don’t forget to include the COVID-testing consent forms and copies of your insurance card in your student’s backpack. Each student will need to have their own copies. Testing will be done with a saliva swab. On the Patient Consent Form, please mark RT-PCR COVID Swab Test and Oropharyngeal Swab (Mouth).


For 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, remember to send your student with a “Permission to Sign Out” note if you would like them to be able to sign themselves out and also pick up siblings at dismissal.

School will dismiss at 12:30 p.m.

To pick-up students in the classroom, park in the neighborhood (not along Selby Avenue) and walk in through the front entrance. The front entry gate will open at 12:30 p.m.

Older students with a signed permission slip will be able to sign themselves out at 12:45 p.m.

They will pick up their siblings at the lunch tables.

After-School Care is available until 6:00 p.m. Billing for this service begins at 3:30 p.m.
