We are so excited to be welcoming students back to the school building this week! Remember we will have a staggered start for all grade levels.
All classes will remain remote (on-line) until their return date.
Students who are opting to stay on-line will continue to receive daily instruction through Schoology/SeeSaw. Please continue to log in for Webex meetings and assignments. On-line learning requires regular attendance and assignment completion.
All students returning for in-person learning should arrive to school between 7:45 and 7:50 daily. There will be no supervision for students before 7:45. All students will be offered Breakfast in the Classroom.
Families will need to perform a health check each day before sending students to school. If a student shows any symptoms or has a fever of 100.4 or higher, they are not allowed to come to school.
School ends at 2:30. Students will be walked out of the building by their teachers. They will then be released depending on their mode of transportation home. (Walking, bus, car pick-up line.) We are requesting that all students be picked up no later than 2:45.
Students will be grouped into cohorts. Each student's cohort will consist of their assigned class. We will be practicing social distancing throughout the school. Lunch will be eaten in the classroom, and recess will be outside with classes in separate areas of the playground. All students are expected to bring and wear their own masks! Each teacher has been provided a child-safe liquid sanitizer spray to help clean throughout the day. When needing to transition inside the building, all students and staff will follow our "traffic patterns" (ie. walking on the right side of the hallway). Plexiglass barriers have been provided by the district and will be used where needed. All high contact areas/bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.
At this time, only students and staff are allowed in the building. If needed, parent/teacher meetings can take place outside, via WebEx, or on the phone.
Some teachers are requesting that students bring their charged technology device to school each day. The device will go home with the student each day. Your child's teachers will communicate this to you.
Do not send school supplies back to school with students. We would like students to keep them at home so that we are prepared should we have to return to on-line learning. Water bottles are encouraged as this will eliminate the need to use our drinking fountains (which will still be available for use!).
All teachers and staff will be wearing masks and staff will complete a health screener each day upon entry to the building.
Thank you for choosing Midland Elementary! See you Soon!
