*In Person School Hours: Our regular school day is 9:15 AM - 3:40 PM. Students enter the building at 9:05 AM. Students are NOT encouraged to arrive any earlier than 9:05 AM. 

*Arrival and Dismissal-All car riders will be a drop and go this year.  There will not be the option to park and wait with or for your child at the front doors.  

*Masks:  As of August 4th, masks must be worn at all times on the bus and in the building by both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.  

*IPADS-iPads need to be sent to school and charged daily.  Please keep the brick and charging cord at home.

*Lunch:  Please consider your child’s ability to be independent while packing his/her lunch.  Please only pack items that your child can open independently.  We will try to limit the amount of close contact by our supervisors and students' food.  If your child can not open their fruit cup at home, they will not be able to open it here.  Feel free to open it and pour it into a baggie or other easily opened container so they do not need help opening it.  If that does not work for you, then please choose other items to include in the lunch.  We will not have plasticware available, so please send that from home, if needed.  Please pack your child’s lunch in as much throw away bags and baggies as possible.  For ease of transition, some students may be taking their reusable lunch items with them out to recess after lunch.  Ideally a brown bag and all throw away items should be used so they do not have to bring anything home after lunch.

Student Dismissal Changes: Parents must contact the office before 3:00 p.m. daily if you are changing how your child is going home for the day. The safety of the children are of the most importance to the staff, no changes will be made after 3:00 p.m.
