In Person Learning Arrival

In Person Learning Arrival

In Person Learning Arrival

In order to avoid congregating at one entrance, we developed a plan for students to enter at different points around the school building. This plan will facilitate our ability to take students’ temperature while having them socially distanced upon entry.  For student arrivals, the following exits/entrances have been designated for each grade:

 

            Pre-Kindergarten                    Exit 7              (next to small schoolyard)

            Kindergarten                           Exit 11            (South Goff, next to large schoolyard fence)

            First Grade                              Exit 17            (next to small schoolyard, past exit 7)

            Second Grade                         Exit 4              (South Goff, past main entrance)

            Third Grade                            Exit 4              (South Goff, past main entrance)

            Fourth Grade                          Exit 6              (Everett Place)

            Fifth Grade                             Exit 1              (Main Entrance)
