Morning Drop Off in the Parkade (Grades 1-7)
We will allow students to exit their vehicles in the parkade from 8:10 a.m. Students will socially distance and wait on the “yellow bubbles” until the doors to the campus open at 8:15 a.m. whereby students will proceed directly to their classroom after sanitizing their hands on the way into school.
When entering the parkade, pull up as far as you possibly can and follow the instructions of the parkade staff. When given the go ahead (a sign stating it’s safe for students to get out of their cars), students should disembark on the left hand side and walk around the outside of the parkade “U” to the entrance to the school.
We expect the earlier drop off time, in combination with the multiple drop off spots and a familiarization with our new protocols, will expedite the morning drop off process.
Morning Drop Off on 26th Avenue (SK and older siblings)
All SK families using the 26th Avenue entrance must enter the roundabout heading east on 26th Avenue (i.e., turning right from Oak Street). Vehicles heading westbound on West 26th Avenue will have to turn around. No vehicles will be permitted to enter the roundabout heading westbound from 26th Avenue.This rule applies for both morning drop off and afternoon pick up.
If you are on foot and dropping off your child, please do not linger in front of the school or congregate/chat/socialize with other parents. We need to ensure everyone is physically distanced and given enough space for the students to enter the school. Please also be careful not to create a blockage of students when parking your bikes. Finally, grades 1-2 students will be entering and exiting from the glass doors to the east of the main door on 26th to avoid as much crossover between the younger children and their older siblings. An adult will be there to help these children enter through this door.
Please ensure you communicate with your children where their pick up spot is at the end of the day and help them understand our new protocols as much as possible. Make sure your instructions correspond with what you have selected on the PikMyKid app.
