Arrival and Dismissal
Teachers will meet their students at their classrooms. Students will wait for their teachers outside their classrooms. Please do not drop students off early.
In an effort to account for social distancing we are asking that grades TK, K, 5th, 6th (and 7th/8th when applicable) be dropped off in front of the school on Pioneer Way. Grades 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th be dropped off at the back entrance of the school on Leader/Shenandoah. Siblings can be dropped off together so parents don’t need to make separate arrangements.
Parents are not allowed to be on campus; however, we understand that for our primary students (grades Tk, K, 1, 2) you may need to help them. We do not have a “drop off” zone at our school so parents who wish to help their students get to class safely will need to park and walk up. We must abide by ALL County guidelines which means that you have to maintain a 6’ distance from other people and wear a mask at all times. If we are unable to do this, we could face stiff penalties, so please help us out.
If your child is late, they will need to come to the office for a late slip.
School and Classroom Safety
6 feet apart at all times
No more than 15 people, including staff, will be allowed in the classrooms
Dot markers on the floor outside of classroom to indicate 6 feet distance between students
Masks at all times
No food in classrooms
No access to drinking fountains - bring personal water bottles
Handwashing and or hand sanitizing will be a normal part of our classroom life.
Leave personal belongings at home that are not school related. Your teacher will tell you which supplies are needed daily at school
Masks and Social Distancing
Per the Twin Rivers Memorandum of Understanding with our Teachers, students who do not wear a mask will not be able to continue in person learning. As well, students who do not maintain the social distancing guidelines may be put on distance learning for the remainder of the year as well. In these critical health times, it is imperative that students abide by the guidelines so we can keep our staff and students safe as well as our campus open for learning.
Symptom Checks and Illness
Checking for Symptoms at Home
Please stay home and notify the office if your child has:
Fever of over 100 degrees
Shortness of breath
Loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
Anyone with these symptoms may not be on campus. If you have any of these symptoms, you will have to stay home for AT LEAST 10 days since the beginning of the symptoms and be totally symptom free upon your return for 24 hours. Pioneer office staff will provide guidance.
Exposure to a known COVID-19 Case, regardless of symptoms or not, must stay quarantined for 14 days from the last date of exposure to the positive person.
Twin Rivers has a contact tracing team that will be organizing and communicating contract tracing protocol as needed. (Pg. 33 and 34 of the Road to Reopening)
See pg. 33 of the Twin Rivers Road to Reopening for more information on COVID-19 symptoms and contact tracing.
If your Child gets Sick at School
The teacher will call for an office staff member to escort your child down to the office. If weather permits, students will sit on chairs 6’ apart outside the nurses office while parents are contacted to come and get them. We can not keep them due to the Public Health risk. Students exhibiting ANY of the symptoms above can not return to school for at least 10 days and must be fever free and symptom free for 24 hours. If they have had known exposure to a positive COVID case, they must stay home for 14 days and return when they are again symptom free.
We can not have visitors at this time. Should you have to come to campus please abide by the 6’ distancing and mask wearing Public Health guidelines. You must be free of ALL COVID-19 symptoms as well in order to be on campus for any reason.
We do not have a “drop off” zone at our school so parents who wish to help their students get to class safely will need to park and walk up. We must abide by ALL County guidelines which means that you have to maintain a 6’ distance from other people and wear a mask at all times. Immediately after dropping off your student(s), please leave the campus. Thank you.
