Staggered Entry Days for September

July 26, 2021


Dear Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers,

As we prepare for learning in the fall, we would like to make you aware of some of our plans for the first week of school.  We will be having staggered entry for all of our students again this September.  Some students will come  on Tuesday, September 7th, some on Wednesday, September 8th, and some on Thursday, September 9th.  All students will attend on September 10th.  This will allow us to have small groups of children in class to meet their teacher and some classmates over the first three days of school.  They will be able to go over the routines and expectations for the year.  Homeroom teachers will be reaching out to caregivers to let you know which day your child will be coming to school during the first few days by phone or e mail. 

When children arrive at school, they will enter the school directly and go to their homeroom classes.  Students who have homerooms on the east side of the building near the field will go in door 5.  Children whose classes are on the west side of the building near the apartment will enter through door 2.  We will continue to have two different drop off zones, one on each side of the building.  Caregivers will not be able to enter the building during morning drop off. 

At this time, we are expecting that drop off times will be returning to pre covid hours for drop off and pick up.  We are expecting that drop off will begin at 7:45.  School begins at 8:25. 

 We will continue to work with Public Health to ensure safety for students by following all safety protocols, depending on the phase we are in.  Near the beginning of the school year, we will be updating families on what those processes and practices will be.  We are hoping for a smooth and heathy return to school in September.
