Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

In an effort to accommodate the increased number of students being dropped off and picked up by parents, procedures have been developed to increase safety and reduce congestion in the front of the school. We encourage all families to use our buses as a safe, and the most efficient means of arrival and dismissal each day. If you plan on driving your child, please email Mrs. Joanne Nolette at to alert us as soon as possible.

Face Coverings/Masks

Face masks covering both the mouth and nose will be required for all students, staff and visitors inside schools and on school buses regardless of vaccination status. Bandanas and neck gaiters will not be permitted.

Masks will be optional when outdoors on school property.

Students will be provided mask breaks when seated in class and socially distanced.

Only those with medically documented reasons for not wearing face coverings would be exempt from this mandate.

Temperature Checks

School staff will conduct temperature checks of students as they enter school each day. If a student has a fever (100 degrees or higher), they will be sent to the designated isolation room to be evaluated by a school nurse. Parents will be contacted immediately and asked to come pick up their child.

Parents/guardians are asked to check their children for COVID-19 symptoms each morning. Students exhibiting one of the following symptoms should not be sent to school that day. Please keep your child at home and call your family doctor.
