Early Arrival Planning
Safety remains top of mind as we enter the new year with all of our students in-person. To ensure students remain in pods to the greatest extent possible, we ask that only families that absolutely need to drop their children off between 7:45 and 8:10. Students will be eating breakfast in their classrooms at the start of the school day. The early arrival time will not be the same social gathering and communal breakfast time that it was in our pre-COVID times.
