- As the new school year approaches, Mr. Tennery wanted to make you aware of some procedural changes that will be taking place. The first bell will ring at 7:45 AM and the tardy bell at 7:50 AM. We have changed our dismissal time from 3:25 PM to 3:30 PM. We ask that no students are dropped off earlier than 7:30 AM. We want to ensure that there is adequate supervision available for our students. This year drop off of students at the elementary school will be made at the two sets of doors at the front of the dome. At drop off, please enter the parking lot entrance closest to Highway 34. The set of doors closest to the school will be for grades 1st-3rd. The second set of doors will be for those in 4th & 5th grades. Every child that enters will have their temperature taken and seated inside the dome in their designated area adhering to social distancing protocols. Classroom teachers will be in the gym with the students and will accompany them to either the classroom or to the cafeteria for breakfast. Our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten will go directly to their classrooms every morning. We will go through the same screening process for them once inside the classroom. Breakfast will be provided for each child who wants it in those grades in the classroom. Our dismissal will work the same as last year except, students will be housed in the dome. When you pull up to the doors, someone will bring your child/children out to the car. On Thursday, August 20th, and Friday, August 21st, parents with students in grades 1st - 5th will be allowed to escort their child inside. Starting Monday, August 24th, please remain in your vehicle and drop students off at the door. Parents with students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten will also be allowed to escort their students to their classroom on Thursday and Friday morning. Starting Monday we ask that you drop your child/children off at the building entrance. If your child has a fever or shows any symptoms of Covid-19, please keep them home. Unfortunately, until the Covid-19 situation improves, we will not be allowing visitors on campus.
