Please take some time to review this Arrival and Dismissal Protocol. It contains visuals that will be helpful for families, particularly those planning to arrive via the live car line. We will continue to have three forms of arrival: walking, bus, and car line. All walkers will enter through the front doors this year (as opposed to multiple doors last year). All bus students will continue to arrive via the front circle and enter through the front doors. All car line students will continue to snake through the front parking lot and into the back parking lot where they will disembark with the support of staff and enter through the back school doors.You can watch our kick-off video here.
