Religious and Independent School Schedules

To maximize in-person instruction, our school will implement measures to decrease density and congregation in our school facility  and on our school grounds, when possible, such as:

  • We have adjusted our arrival and dismissal times.

  • We will be limiting  in-person presence to only those staff who are necessary to be at the school during normal school hours.

  • We will be staggering class schedules and allowing more time between classes to reduce congestion in hallways, walkways in and outside the building.

  • We will be splitting our larger  classes into two pods to accommodate social distancing All faculty and staff will wear appropriate PPE.

  • Students will wear a mask upon arrival and dismissal.

  • Kindergarten and 1st grade pod arrival is 8:00am. Dismissal will be at 2:45pm. All Kindergartners and 1st graders will enter and exit through the Northside door.

  • Pre K 3 pod 1 and pod 2 arrival is at 8:30am through the Northside entrance. They will also exit through the Northside doors. Dismissal will be at 2:15 through the same Northside doors.

  • Pre-K 4 pod 1 and pod 2 arrival is at 8:30am through the gym doors. They will also exit through the gym doors. Dismissal will be at 2:15.

  • The office secretary will ask the parent or designated adult to wait outside the Northside door with their child while the secretary puts on the proper PPE and comes to the door.

  • We have cut class sizes down in order to physically distance staff & students 6 feet apart all day.

  • We will mark areas that are commonly used, to ensure the 6’ apart rule is followed. Ex. signage for parents to wait as their child is accepted into the building for health screening.

  • Staggered arrival and departure times for staff and students will be implemented
