IF YOUR CHILD IS ABSENT
DROP-OFF, PICK-UP and AFTERCARE
DROP OFF: Morning drop-off procedures will begin at 7:15 a.m. There are two options for drop off (see below) Upon arrival to campus, students will proceed to the playground where they will be supervised by school staff. All students are expected to be on the playground by 7:50 a.m. At 7:55 a.m., the bell will ring for students to proceed to their homeroom classrooms. You will still need to complete your child’s wellness check on the SchoolPass app prior to drop-off.
OPTION 1: Drop students at one of the two curbside locations: one on Selby Avenue in front of the school, and one on Ohio Avenue, just east of our church entrance on the south side of the street. Parent volunteers will be stationed at these locations to help students out of the car. Students will then walk directly into the front entrance on Selby Avenue, or through the gate on the east side of the church. Students MUST exit on the passenger side of the car.
OPTION 2: Parents of students from all grades may choose to park in the neighborhood and walk students into the front entrance on Selby Avenue, or through the gate on the east side of the church.
ONCE AT SCHOOL: Kinder students are encouraged to go to their respective yards outside homeroom classrooms. Teachers and/or assistant teachers will be there to supervise. Kinder students are also allowed to go to the big yard if they feel comfortable doing that.
PICK UP: Pick-up procedures will remain the same. Pickup is at 2:45pm Monday through Thursday and 12:30pm every Friday. There will be no traffic circle. You will need to park your car and enter the school for pick-up. On normal release days, at 3:05pm, teachers will release students to a supervised area at the lunch tables in the yard where they may be picked up. At 3:30pm, all students still on campus will be signed into After-School Care and charges will apply.
AFTERCARE: If you anticipate using After-School Care, please complete the registration form and return it to Mayora Hiney at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about After-School Care can be found here.
WEEKLY COVID TESTING
Please complete the required Covid testing paperwork EACH week and turn in to homeroom teachers. 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 more information or if you prefer to do weekly testing on your own, contact Nurse A at email@example.com
PARENT VOLUNTEERS ON CAMPUS
Parents/caregivers need to either submit proof of vaccination or provide proof of a NEGATIVE Covid test result within 72 hours prior to each volunteering opportunity they plan to fulfill at the school (e.g., traffic duty, playground, hot lunch, etc.) All vaccination cards, or an email regarding your plan to test, must be on file with Nurse A.
For playground and hot lunch volunteers, your Virtus certificate and fingerprinting results must also be on file with Mayora Hiney and negative TB test must be on file with Nurse A before your volunteer duty.
