Pre-Kindergarten Arrival and Dismissal: Parents of Pre-kindergarten students must follow the same protocols as listed below for daily health screening prior to arrival at school, drop off procedures, and pick up procedures. Please allow yourself additional time for drop off at arrival, student pick-up during the instructional day and during dismissal.  Essentially we are processing students in and out of the building one at a time to ensure the safety of students, family members, and staff.

Student Drop Off: Families who elect to drop their children off at school must park in the south parking lot (see below for map). You will be greeted by a staff member and directed to the drop off line with your child, practicing social distancing and wearing a face covering at all times.

  2. Parent or guardian of student has completed the student’s daily COVID screening at home, student shows symptoms: these students will not be allowed to enter the building and must return home. In order to return to school, the New York State Department of Health guidelines require that the student will need to (see Guidelines for COVID-19 Symptoms & Return to School):

    • provide documentation from the family’s health care provider,

    • be free of symptoms for 24 hours, and

    • present a negative COVID-19 test result before being admitted back into school.

  3. Parent or guardian of student has NOT completed the student’s daily COVID screening at home: these students will be health screened by a staff member to determine their status for the day based on the screening results.

Late Arrival: Students in grades K – 5 arriving after 9:10 am are considered tardy.  A parent or guardian must park in the south parking lot and call the main office at 349-5509.  The principal or a staff member will meet the parent or guardian outside Entrance #1 where your child’s health screen status will be reviewed.  Students who are approved to enter school will do so.  Students who have not completed their daily health screening at home will be health screened by a staff member to determine their status for the day. 

Student Pick Up at Dismissal 3:20 pm: Families who elect to pick up their children up from school at dismissal must park in the south parking lot and enter the student pick up line practicing social distancing and wearing a face covering.  If you intend to pick up your child from school at dismissal you should send in a note or call us at 349-5509. If you did not send in a note about picking up your child, you will need to provide that note to the staff member at Entrance #1 along with your driver’s license or a government issued picture ID.  Your child will be escorted to the family member once they exit the building.

Parents will park in the south parking lot and enter the student pick up line practicing social distancing and wearing a face covering.  Once you arrive at Entrance #1 you will be required to provide your driver’s license or a government issued picture ID.  Your child will be escorted to the family member once they exit the building.
