- Teachers will have signs and meet students at the doors to help them find their classrooms quickly and safely.
- Adults dropping students off will be asked to stay in their cars, to keep groups of people from gathering on school grounds. We ask that adults use the car drop-off lane, instead of parking and walking students to the building. This will help ensure we are socially distancing and maintaining the proper number of people in a space.
- Adults walking students to school will be asked to walk them to the blacktop and let students go to their grade-level entrances. School adults will be present to welcome all students and ensure they get to their classrooms quickly and safely.
- Breakfast is served from 7:40-7:55 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Students who are eating breakfast will enter the building, using the S1 door, and will be served with a “Grab-and-Go” breakfast meal. Students will walk to their classrooms and eat breakfast there.
- Students arriving after 7:55 (10:10 on Wednesdays) will go to the main front office doors (S1) to receive a tardy pass.
- To maintain the safest possible environment for our students, adults will be asked to say goodbye from the car or the blacktop, without entering the building or walking students to class.
- A table will be set up in the front vestibule (door S1) and if an adult has something to drop off in the office, the labeled item(s) can be set on the table and our building secretary will get the item(s) to the student. Please ring the doorbell and let CIndy know what you are dropping off and who it is for. She will open the door and you can set the item(s) on the table.
- For the time being, we are limiting visitors to our buildings. If you have a need to come in, please call the office and schedule an appointment.
Northside Parent Drop-off/Pick-up
- Cars should enter the parking lot, traveling from 1st Street.
- Cars should follow the drop-off/pick-up lane marked in the parking lot and stop at the designated red line.
- Students will wait with grade levels and/or siblings to ensure the most efficient experience for everyone.
- When students see their cars pull up, they may get into the car from the passenger side doors. This helps make sure students are not crossing in front of or behind other cars and that drivers are not holding up the line by parking to get out of their cars and help students into the car.
- If your student(s) typically exit the building later than other students, please plan accordingly. If there is a car holding up the line while waiting for students, NW staff may ask the driver to pull ahead to a waiting zone.
