Attention parents of morning drop off students
We will have a slight shift in our morning procedures during the mornings of below freezing temperatures. Staff members will still be doing the daily student temperature checks. The temperature checks will be moved into the doorways of the building. Deputy Turner will remain in the parking lot for supervision and Mr. Wheeless will be at the top of the bridge to monitor students as they come up the steps and cross the bridge. The teachers you usually see in the parking lot will be in the doorways of the building to check temps as the students enter. We will call you if there is a problem with your child's temp.
