Due to the large amount of distribution, we will not be able to accommodate distributing several students’ personal belongings to one person.  You will only be able to pick up your child’s possessions.

In order to protect yourself and our staff, please be sure to wear your face covering when you come to school.  If you drive to the school, remain in your vehicle unless you are directed to exit.  If you walk to school always stay at least six feet away from other persons. Do not bring children or friends with you; leave children at home under the supervision of other family members, if possible.  Finally, if you are ill or under isolation or quarantine because of your own illness or that of a close contact, please do not come to school.  Please contact the school principal to make alternative arrangements.

 

The drive-through distribution site will be located in front of the school   Our pick-up and distribution will be divided into three stations: Check-in, Return of School Property, and Retrieval of Personal Items.. There will be staff and signage to help guide you through this process.

Stations may vary slightly, but the general guidelines for each station are listed below:

STATION #1 – Check-In

  • This first stop will be marked with an orange cone, a sign and will have a staff person checking your name to expedite the process.
  • Families will print the student’s first/last name and grade level in dark ink on a large piece of paper and place it on the dashboard.

STATION #2 – Return of School Property

  • Will be marked with an orange cone and a sign.
  • Families will label the bag of items that are being returned to the school with the following information:
  • Remain in your car.
  • If you are able to open your trunk without getting out of your car, our staff will retrieve your child’s school property from the trunk. (preferred)
  • If you are unable to open your trunk without getting out of your car, our staff will retrieve your child’s school property from the back seat.
  • Walking families will drop off bagged student items at the designated location.

STATION #3 – Retrieval of Personal Items

  • Will be marked with an orange cone and a sign.
  • Staff will place a bag with your child’s items to be returned in the same location (trunk or back seat).
  • Walking families will retrieve items from appropriately marked tables.
  • Students will have the opportunity to clear all financial obligations.

Please adhere to your assigned date and time frame.
