Dear Olympic Families,
We have developed a plan for students and their families to pick-up belongings and school supplies left in classrooms prior to Governor Inslee’s Stay-at-Home order.  Packets for students to complete next week will be in the bag with your child’s belongings and school supplies.  The safety of our students, families and our staff is the top priority as we go through this together.  Therefore, it is crucial that everyone follows social distancing guidelines throughout the process.  The following information is the procedure we will use as families and students arrive on campus:
Date and time:  Friday, April 17th  – 10:00 a.m -3:00 p.m. – Families will come to school at designated times based upon the last name, first initial, of the oldest student in the family. (See below)
Where:   Report to the location on campus where your student is dismissed after school.
How:  Para-educators and support staff will escort students to and from classrooms, one at a time.  Social distancing guidelines will be posted and monitored for everyone’s safety.  Distances of six feet will be marked with X’s on sidewalks at all pick-up locations.  All staff will wear masks and gloves.  We strongly recommend students and family members do the same.  Please refrain from hugs, handshakes, high-fives, fist bumps, etc.
Station location:
       Kindergarten – On the porch near the parking lot
       1st Grade – At the fence opening next to the large gate and crosswalk
       2nd Grade – At the fence opening next to the porch
       3rd Grade – The front doors of the main building (near the flagpole)
       4th Grade – The south end of campus, the gate 4th/5th grades exit for dismissal
       5th Grade – The south end of campus, the gate near the gravel parking lot
Scheduled time:   (by the first initial of last name)
10:00 – 11:00 –A-C
11:00 – 12:00 –D-H
12:00 – 1:00 –I-M
1:00 – 2:00 -N-R
2:00 – 3:00 – S–Z
Grade level teachers may be working in classrooms during the pick-up times and will be able to say hello to students, following social distancing practices.
Student medications, epipens, inhalers, etc. will be signed-out to parents/guardians at the front doors of the main building, near the flagpole on Friday the 17
Student and parents, if you have any school library books out, please return them on Friday.
Please contact your classroom teacher or me for any questions you have before or after Friday.
Sincerely,
Mike Mendenhall
