    1. There will be a required, daily health screening.
    2. Students will be required to wear a mask.
    3. One student will be assigned to each bus seat, unless from the same household.
    4. All students will be met by staff at a designated drop off area.
    5. All classrooms are 15 students or less.
    6. In the classroom, students will be assigned to seats that are six feet apart and face the same direction.
    7. Students will have their own materials for daily use and items will not be shared.
    8. Hand washing will be prioritized throughout the day including but not limited to on arrival, before lunch, after recess, and after using the restroom.
    9. Daily cleaning of common areas will be done in compliance with CDC and Public Health recommendations.
    10. When heading home, students will line up maintaining six feet between them.

    Whenever you visit our school, please use the front (South) entrance and go directly to the main office. Students will not be lining up in the playground for the remainder of this year.

    If you and your student(s) arrive after the second bell in the morning, the front door will be locked. Please ring the bell and upon entering proceed straight to the main office and sign in your student. 

    It is important to sign in properly, communicate to someone in the main office that you are signing in, and wear a visitor badge whenever you visit our school. 

    We appreciate everyone’s patience and support as we work to increase the safety and security of our school. 


    Illness (keeping kids who are sick at home):
    Please encourage your students to wash hands, get plenty of rest, and drink lots of fluids.  If students do get sick, please keep them home.  If your kids have a fever, diarrhea, or have vomited, they need to stay home for at least 24 hours. 

    Pick up and drop-off procedures:
    All student pick-ups and drop-offs using a motor vehicle must be done on NE 54th St. regardless of the weather. Please do not park or drop-off on NE 55th St. as this causes a traffic jam in the bus zone and delays the arrival of students on the busses.

    Private school applications:
    If applying for private schools, please give us notice at least two weeks in advance and provide necessary envelopes and stamps.
