Student Drop-Off and Pick Up

For student safety and family convenience, all student drop-offs and pick ups during arrival and dismissal times should occur at the cafeteria entrance. Any drop-offs or pick ups during the school day, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., should be through the main entrance by the office. Please avoid the main entrance area during student arrival and dismissal times.

Mitigation Efforts

Thank you for your continued effort in completing student health checks in Skyward. The percentage of students with health checks completed at home has greatly improved. Due to changes in guidelines and our district’s safety plan, we will no longer permit students to take mask breaks in the classroom. If needed, students can come to the health office for mask breaks.
