Rainy day drop-off procedures

If it’s sprinkling somewhat or raining lightly in the morning, please drop off or wait with your student on the playground as you normally would. If it’s really pouring outside the administration will open the back doors and welcome students into the building beginning at 7:40 am.

  • Kindergarten & 1st Grade: go to the gym
  • 2nd Grade: go to the lunchroom
  • 3rd-5th Grades: go straight to classrooms.

If you decide to wait along with your child until the bell rings, you will be asked to wear a visitor’s badge.

Previously, community meetings were held on these boundary changes in April 2016. The meetings provided an opportunity for the district to share information with the community on the upcoming changes, and for the community to provide feedback on any changes that could affect the boundaries that were approved in 2013. Review the Spring meeting presentation.
