Monday Morning

Monday Morning – First Day of Classes

Hello,

This newsletter is just to go through the plans and systems for the first day of classes on Monday.  Please read through the items below and we look forward to seeing you there.

Medical Form Reminder

Parents, if you have not done so, please use the link that was emailed to you to update the medical information for your children. If it is a returning student, all we need is the online link as seen above completed.  This process helps us support all students through having the most recent and relevant information

Self Screening

Please follow the school’s Student Screening Checklist before coming to school each day.  If you have questions or are unsure, please contact us.  It is better that we err on the side of caution in this screening process.

Driving in

The school entrance has been redesigned as part of the process that will see an ATM installed near the front gate.  We are hopeful that this process will help with traffic in the area and the flow of students as well.  Please see the diagram below. We will have staff onsite to help as we make the adjustment.

You will enter through the new gate and exit through what used to be the entrance. The old exit is used only for deliveries and access for school vehicles to the main campus.

Please drop off in the designated spots and be on the lookout for students in the parking lot.

Hand Washing

You will notice we have multiple hand washing stations at each entrance, please use them as you enter.
