Normal Student Operations Affected by COVID-19

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my child is late for school?

If your child is fewer than 15 minutes late they can be dropped off and you do not need to sign them in at the office. However, if your child is late by more than 15 minutes, you must physically walk your child to the office and sign them in. When doing so you must wear a face mask and observe social distancing. Your access will be limited to the building vestibule and you will be required to leave the building immediately following. For the schools that do not have a vestibule, please wait for additional information related to drop off procedures.

Will I be able to have school parties or lunch with my child at school?

Unfortunately, to limit the number of individuals in school buildings and classrooms, we are not allowing parent volunteers and are planning to restructure classroom celebrations and holiday parties. Additionally, visitors will not be allowed to eat lunch with students.

Will the district offer child care options for families in the event of a hybrid model or full e-learning implementation?

The district is exploring child care options for families that may need this service in the event the hybrid model or full e-learning option is implemented. The district will be communicating with our families once final details are established.

Will there be new arrival and departure procedures for my child’s school?

Please be patient with district employees as they work to implement new protocols. Arrival and dismissal procedures may initially take more time than in previous years. Building principals will be working on communicating any changes with arrival and dismissal to their school communities. Your understanding is appreciated.

How will recess be different?

Schools will develop recess schedules that limit the number of students on the playground or within a specific area of the playground. This may look different at each school due to the amount of playground space at each site. There will be some restrictions on the types of activities made available to students, however, safe play and socializing will be encouraged.
