End of Year Materials Drop Off and Pick Up

Students and parents are allowed to come on campus to bring in school books/materials and pick up student supplies on May 19-20. Teachers will be at the school to help organize classrooms. However, the governor’s guidelines allow no more than 5 persons at a time within a confined interior space. We must maintain social distancing on campus. Therefore, we are staggering the days and times for students to come on campus, and, once 5 people are in a room, you will need to wait until someone leaves before we let someone else in. Here are the specifics.

Tuesday, May 19 — Grammar School Drop Off/Pick Up — KPrep-6th

9:00 a.m. – noon: Families whose last name begins with A-H

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.: Families whose last name begins with I-Z

Wednesday, May 20 — Logic/Rhetoric School Drop Off/Pick Up — 7th-12th

9:00 a.m. – noon: Families whose last name begins with A-H

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.: Families whose last name begins with I-Z

Please enter through the front doors and exit through the rear doors. This flow will minimize traffic through the school office/foyer and help maintain social distancing.

Parents may visit the office if needed, but the school office/foyer will be considered an enclosed space, and the 5-person maximum will apply.

If you have a child in both Grammar School and L/R School, please plan to come on campus both days.

A few more details:

  • Social distancing guidelines apply at all times: at least 6 feet separation among individual visitors not within the same household, including when entering and leaving a school facility.
  • Students need to return all books and materials that belong to the school, including Chromebooks and power cords. You are strongly encouraged to organize these supplies at home so that you can deliver them all in one trip. Your family will be billed for any books or materials not turned in.
  • Teachers will help organize students’ supplies so that they are ready to be picked up.
  • Logic/Rhetoric students need to completely clean out their lockers.
  • Students should bring a large bag or box to transport their supplies.
  • We encourage students to come to the classroom alone or with a maximum of 1 parent in order to facilitate the 5-person per room maximum.
  • The school building will be sanitized before students arrive, and teachers will continue to sanitize surfaces throughout the day.
  • Face masks are strongly encouraged. Washing hands and using hand sanitizer is required.
  • Students or parents displaying any of the following new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19 should not come on campus: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain or headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0, or known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19.

Thank you for working with us on this staggered schedule and with these guidelines. Even though we won’t be able to be together as a whole school, it will still be good to see one another in this limited way. If you have questions, please email the school office at [email protected].
