QUESTION/ANSWER SECTION

Question: What does morning arrival look like for Cohort A and B?

Answer: All students will be health checked upon entering the building. Bus riders will enter the building from the front using two different sets of doors. Car drop off will occur in the BACK of the building. (This is a new practice for those families that were at EB last year). Walkers from the north of the building (Bush St.) will enter the building through the exterior cafeteria door. Walkers from the south of the building (back) will enter the building through the door beside the gym. PreK will have their own arrival and dismissal plan. Students that are being dropped off with their PreK sibling, can enter the building with their PreK sibling at the PreK designated door entrance.

Question:  What does afternoon dismissal look like?

Answer:

  • Students that go home by car will be dismissed to the BACK of the building. They will wait under the covered area until their adult arrives to pick them up. Adults should remain in the car and an EB staff member will bring them to you. All car pick ups should have an orange EB “Family/Parent Pick-Up” displayed in their car with their child’s name and teacher on it. This will make the car pick up faster.
  • Students that walk home to the south/behind the building will be dismissed to the back of the building. They can meet their K-5 siblings under the covered area by their teacher’s name/cone. If a parent is walking home with their child, please have your orange “Family/Parent Pick-Up” sign with your child’s name and teacher on it. Parent walking “waiting area” is in the bark chips by the parking lot. 
  • Students that walk home from the north (Bush St) of the building will be dismissed through the exterior cafeteria door. They can meet their K-5 siblings just outside the building. If a parent is walking home with their child, please have your orange “Family/Parent Pick-Up” sign with your child’s name and teacher on it. Parent “waiting area” will be by the trees near the front of the parking lot.
  • Students that ride the bus will be dismissed through the front of the building, and board the bus

Question:  Where do I stand to meet my student if we will be walking home?

Answer:  We will have designated “Waiting Area” signs posted for families to wait for their child if they are walking to pick them up.  This will allow physical distancing for all students as they are arriving or leaving the building.  If you live to the back of the building you will wait for your child on the bark chips by the parking lot.  If you live in the front of the school, you will have a waiting area on the sidewalk by the trees in the front.  Your options for waiting must follow social distancing protocols.  The sidewalks will be marked for socially distanced waiting.  Please make a plan with your student so they know exactly where to meet you.

Question:  How will students get their school lunches?

Answers:  Free sack lunches will be delivered to classrooms, and students will be able to put them in their backpacks before leaving the classroom.  We will also continue to have lunches available for students participating in CDL.  Sack lunches will be served in front of the school after the buses leave starting at 11:45. Unfortunately we are not serving a full breakfast for students at school, so please make sure they have breakfast before leaving home. The sack lunches that are provided will have enough food in them for breakfast at home too.

We are doing everything in our power to ensure that we have a smooth and safe transition back to in-person learning. As always, the health and safety of your student and our staff will be our top priority as we plan for reopening.

Take care,
