What is a Tag Day?
A Tag Day is a ‘No Uniform Day.’ A charity or cause is usually identified for families to make donations and students can come into school on that day in their ‘regular’ clothes. Some tag days also have a theme associated with them – e.g. Wear Red for a Bed.
K2-6 : 7:40- 8:00 K0-K1: 8:10-8:25
The times have been staggered the times in order to control cohort crossover.
If your child is in K2-6 and arrives after 8:00 am your child will not be permitted to enter the building until 8:30am via the front door. This will allow the students in K0-K1 to enter the building safely.
What is rolling drop-off? – Currently not in use due to Covid
Rolling drop off is offered for children in grades K2 through 6. There will be teachers at the East 3rd Street/parking lot entrance beginning at 7:45am. They will open the car door for your child. There are also teachers in the school yard to supervise the children. On extremely cold or raining days the children will be allowed to go straight into the gym. Rolling drop off is not a time to help your child out of the car with their backpack or give them one last kiss goodbye. If you are not comfortable with a teacher helping your child our of the car and going into the schoolyard while you drive away then rolling drop off is not for you! The school usually sends the policy home at the beginning of the school year.
What is the sibling line? – currently not in use due to Covid
The sibling line is for younger siblings (Pre-K and K1 students) of children in grades K2 through 6. Parents must wait with the younger sibling by the gym door. Once all of the students from K2 through grade 6 enter the gym there will be Early Childhood teachers there to escort the younger students downstairs.
