How should I drop off medication for my child during the first week of school?
Parents will not be allowed to enter the Commons to drop off medications at the Health Office as usual. To ensure your child has the medications they need, please place the medications along with any instructions in a large, clear ziplock bag labeled with your child's name. You will be able to hand off the medication to an Administrator at one of the following drop off locations: the Lower School Complex, Early Childhood Porch, main entrance to the Upper School building or at the Crescent. These are also the main drop off locations for your children depending on division. The Health Office will reach out to you to discuss the medication and instructions.
How can I solve technical issues with the AUXS Safety App?
Please download the AUXS Health Certification before Tuesday so that you can navigate any technical issues prior to the first day of school. Please feel free to test the system by submitting a Health Certification for your child prior to the first day. To follow are some troubleshooting tips:
If you use a Hotmail or MSN email account, you may be having issues receiving emails from AUXS (either the invitation or the green pass once you submit the certification). If this applies to you, please consider emailing us at email@example.com with an alternate email address so that you don't miss these important emails.
Be sure your phone software is up-to-date. Some users have reported having difficulty submitting the Health Certification once completed. Ensuring the phone software is fully up-to-date seems to fix this issue.
If the AUXS app is buffering without action, please delete the app and try to reinstall it.
Parents who only have an international phone number will need to use the web-interface to submit the Health Certification. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
If you are not able to troubleshoot the AUXS app, please submit the Health Certification via through the AUXS Web Portal.
How will student afternoon pick up work?
Families with Lower School children will have received in the mail colored name cards to display on their dashboards. Lower School pick up times will range from 11:30 am to 12:15 pm in the first week and from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm thereafter (colored cards indicate recommended pick-up times for each family). After Care, which will be on a limited, registration-only basis, will be offered from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m after the first week of school.
Middle School students should be picked up at 12:00 pm during the first week, and at 3:30 pm thereafter unless specific plans are made and confirmed with a faculty member. Middle School students can be picked up at the Crescent (by the Middle/Upper School Dining Hall).
Upper School students should consult their schedules to determine pick up time. Upper School students may be picked up after their last academic class of the day if students are not involved in any activities or athletics. On D and F days, US students will be involved in grade-level specific curriculum (health, study skills, college counseling) and community time (extended advisory, grade-level meetings, all-school (virtual) meetings). After the first week of school, US Students who must stay until 4:30 will be assigned a study hall location. All students must be picked up by 4:30 at the latest. Upper School students can by picked up in front of the entrance to the Upper School Building or the GPA.
How can I order lunch for my child? Have there been any changes?
In preparing lunches for our faculty on campus this week, FLIK determined that it will be more efficient to have students in Middle and Upper School come to the Dining Hall to pick from a range of individually prepared and boxed options rather than having them order the lunches ahead of time. Students will still have both hot and cold lunch options and the choices will be marked clearly so students can quickly grab and go.
Lower School parents will pre-order their child(ren)'s lunch(es) and these lunches will be delivered to homeroom classrooms. Parents can set up their online account with FLIK by following these instructions. Since the first week ends at noon, parents do not need to worry about ordering lunch for the first week of school.
The typical daily menu will include eight choices (one hot entree, one vegetarian hot entree, one salad with protein, a vegetarian salad, three cold sandwiches / wraps, and a bagel option). In the first two weeks of school, FLIK will only provide cold options and will add hot options thereafter. Cold boxed Lunches will include a fresh fruit cup & a side salad (pasta or grain). Hot lunches will include one or two sides depending on the entrée of the day. Chips, dessert and bottled water will be available as well.
How will pedestrian traffic flow work in buildings with one-way hallways?
To facilitate social distancing in the hall-ways during class changes, we are instituting one-way hallways. We have signage posted around campus to direct students where to go, but here is a map of pedestrian traffic flow.
If my child is sick, what form must our doctor complete to clear him/her to return?
If your child is sick, the Health Office will work with you to discuss next steps specific to your child's symptoms. In most cases, we will require a physician to complete and sign the Clearance to Return After Illness Form before the student can return to campus.
