Breakfast begins at 8:50 a.m. and will be “Grab and Go”. Students will pick up their breakfast in the cafeteria and take it to eat in their classrooms.

Student Pickup/Drop Off after arrival time
No visitors will be allowed in the building
Parents/guardians who are dropping off a child late to school should park in a legal spot in the parking lot and escort the child to the front door and ring the bell. There will be an iPAD mounted on the wall with a simple Google Form for the parent to enter necessary information (student name, parent name, reason for drop off/pick up)
The greeter will ask the parent/guardian to show identification to the camera, complete the form and submit it and then someone will come to the door to escort the child to class.
This procedure will be the same for parents picking up children early from school whether it be from the nurse’s office or to go to an appointment etc. In this case, the children will be escorted to the front door by a staff member to join the parent/guardian .
Please try to make appointments on days students are not in attendance
