NEW arrival and dismissal routines
Students who are dropped off in the drop off lane, should stay in the car until a Heiman staff member greets them at the car and checks their temperature. They will then walk to the cafeteria doors and enter the school through the cafeteria. They will follow the arrows on the floor around the library that will point them to their grade level hallway.
Students who arrive by bus will be greeted by a staff member as they get off the bus, will have their temperature checked and will enter the building through the front door. They will follow the arrows on the floor around the library that will point them to their grade level hallway. Students who meet a special education staff member in the front of the building follow that same process as in the past, the staff member by the buses will check their temperature before entering the building.
Students who arrive by walking or are dropped off in the neighborhood and walk to school will go to the table by the west wing of the building, near the Heiman sign. They will have their temperature checked and will enter the school through the back doors that we call the lost and found doors. They will follow the arrows on the floor around the library that will point them to their grade level hallway. We ask that these students try to time their arrival for as close to 7:45AM as possible.
Grab and Go breakfasts will be available for students to pick up in each of the grade level hallways. The first bell rings at 7:45, the late bell rings at 7:50. Students who arrive after 7:50 will need to come through the front doors to have their temperature checked before going to class. Due to the virus, only students and staff are allowed in the building. Please make plans to say your goodbye to your child before they enter the building.
For dismissal at the end of the day. Bus students will be called down to the busses as soon as their bus arrives, they will exit through the front doors and go directly to their bus. Students who walk or are picked up will be walked outside by their teachers at 3:10. Starting on Wednesday, when Kindergarteners are in the building, older siblings of Kinder students who are being picked up in the Kindergarten pick up lane at the east end of the building will be dismissed at 3:00 to meet up with their Kindergarten sibling to be picked up in the Kindergarten pick up lane. There will be lots of Heiman staff available to help as we implement these new procedures.
We can't wait to get this new year started!
