For Car Riders, Bus Riders & Walkers.

BUS STUDENTS...

Bus Routes: The bus routes will be emailed to all families who ride the bus, before school starts. For the current bus stops please click HERE.

Bus Stop: Students riding the bus are expected to wear face masks at the bus stop and to practice 6ft. social distancing. We will need parent assistance in ensuring these expectations are followed.

Bus Seats: On the first day of school a staff member will be riding the bus to assign students seats for the school year. Students are expected to sit in these seats to/from school each time they ride the bus. Students will be sitting with their sibling if they have a sibling on the bus. Students must wear face coverings the entire time they are on the bus. Please review this expectation with your child(ren) in advance.

Arrival & Entry Points: When the bus arrives at school, students will exit the bus and walk to their assigned door, which will be announced the same day as class assignments are published. Please know that your child is being assigned the door closest to their classroom to ensure social distancing. This will be a slight change from past procedures. Students will walk with their face coverings on as they make their way to their classroom.

Dismissal: Students will remain in the classroom at the end of the day until there has been an announcement to meet their bus. This is a change from past procedures where all students were gathered in the lunchroom and dismissed from there for their bus. When their bus has arrived and their classroom has been called down they will walk toward the multi-purpose room where they will be escorted to the bus.

 

WALKERS...

Students who walk to and from school will need to be wearing masks and practicing social distancing. They will walk directly to their assigned exterior door once they are on school property. Once they arrive at the door they will immediately gain entry and go directly to their classroom.

Students will be dismissed from their classroom doors, and exit out the same door they entered at the start of the school day.

 

CAR RIDERS...

Arrival: Upon drop off, cars will drop off students on the northeast side of the building on the blacktop. Students will walk to their assigned door. We anticipate more car riders this year, and will need parents to pull all the way forward, so that we can exit as many children from cars in a timely manner. All students will need to exit their car on the passenger side and be wearing a mask when they exit the car. Parents will need to stay in the car to keep the line moving, so please practice with your child exiting the car on their own. Staff will be outside to assist. Kindergarten students and siblings of Kindergarten students can continue to be dropped off in the front driveway and make their way to the doors 3 and 4 (All Day Kindergarten) or door 5 for AM Kindergarten depending on their classroom teacher assignment.

Entry Points: Students will be entering the building through their assigned doors. This is a shift from previous practice where all students entered through main entries. This will allow greater social distancing and fresh air for students when they walk around the building. The exception is for kindergarten, which will enter at their classroom door after drop off in the front driveway (facing Jewell Road).

Dismissal: All car riders (and walkers) will be dismissed from their assigned exterior door. They will need to walk to the car pick up area where they will wear masks and social distance to wait. It will be VERY important for students to be watching for their car, so that we can efficiently assist all students getting into their cars quickly. Drivers will need to pull all the way up and continue to pull forward as cars exit and space becomes available. Staff will be available to assist students finding their cars.
