    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    We are very excited to welcome in-person students back to school four days a week!

    Please be reminded of the following return to school items:

    • Please check your Realtime Parent Portal for current transportation information. 
    • Morning drop-off by parents will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. Please pull your vehicle into the circle in front of the building. A staff member will be present to monitor and assist your child as he/she enters the building. 

    • Afternoon pick-up by parents will begin at 12:50 p.m. prior to bus arrival. Please park at the Star of the Sea Church and walk over to the playground area to sign your child out. Masks are required to be worn on the playground. If it is raining at dismissal, parents will sign their child out at the Gym doors, and then wait by their child's grade level entrance (kindergarten-doors closest to the swings, 1st grade-gym entrance, 2nd grade-library entrance).

    • Students riding the bus will be dismissed at 1:10 p.m.

    • Please note that students are required to wear masks throughout the school day including while riding the bus and entering the building. Please be advised that students who display symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed on the bus.

    Thank you for your continued support!

    Mrs. De Brito
