Thank you all for a smooth start today!
For those students who are here for their first day today, we have checked in on every classroom this morning, and we all had our first recesses outside on the pavement, so we are all adjusting to back to school wonderfully, with our Public Health protocols back in place.
For those attending school today, and for the remainder of the week, your child’s classroom has been assigned an EXIT DOOR at the end of the day.
Kindergarten students, when they begin, will be picked up on the Kindergarten side through their classroom exit doors and the gate (either Door #4 or Door #5) starting at the times provided by your teachers. Mrs. Rodin’s Kindergarten class in Room 105 will exit through DOOR #3, which is the school door directly beside the Kindergarten Fenced Yard.
ALL GRADES 1-3 CLASSES will be exiting to the back playground at the end of the day. A parent can pick up their child from the teacher starting at 3:05pm. If siblings are picking up younger students, please direct them to the back playground to find the teacher.
PORTABLE CLASSROOMS will be exiting directly from their portables to the sidewalks beside the park.
GRADE 4 INSIDE CLASSROOM Mrs. Keogan’s Grade 4 class will be dismissed through Door #10, (which is on the Park Side of the school at the back beside the entrance to the playground).
GRADE 5 INSIDE CLASSROOM Mr. Ciavarra’s Grade 5 class will be dismissed through Door #3, (which is the door beside the Kindergarten fenced yard).
GRADE 6 CLASSROOMS Mrs. Martin and Mr. Driscoll’s classes will be exiting out through DOOR #10 (which is on the Park Side of the school at the back beside the entrance to the playground). Ms. DiGiulio’s class will exit out Door #3 (which is the door beside the Kindergarten fenced yard).
GRADE 7 CLASSROOMS Mrs. Staples will exit through DOOR #3 on the Kindergarten side. Ms. Wozniak’s Grade 7 class will be exiting out through Door #10 and Mr. Osadciw’s class will exit out through Door #11, both on the park side parking lot.
GRADE 7/8 (Mr. Campanelli) AND GRADE 8 CLASSROOMS (Mr. Walmsley and Ms. Galasso) will be exiting through DOOR #10 (which is on the Park Side of the school at the back beside the entrance to the playground).
Teachers will be reviewing this exit procedure this week with each group of students. This will give you an idea of where your child will be exiting our school at the end of every day, starting today.
If you are picking up your child(ren) from school, we recommend avoiding our parking lots and meeting students on the sidewalks. Please remember our Public Health guidelines and limit the amount of people coming to the school for pick up (and drop off) and spread out while you wait for your child(ren) as best you can. As a reminder, we ask you to keep all pets off the school property to keep everyone safe and alleviate any fears our students may have.
Entry doors for each morning’s direct entry will begin on Thursday. We will communicate these doors after our staggered entry tomorrow.
Teachers will be sending home with your child(ren) a Daily Confirmation Log to complete each morning prior to school. Please ensure that this log is returned every day for the first two weeks of school to your child’s teacher. For those students coming for their first day tomorrow, you can verbally confirm your child’s daily screening directly with the teacher until you receive your Confirmation Log.
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support as we work together to protect everyone to ensure a safe and healthy return to school!
