Walk-up Privileges Kindergarteners will eventually have the same walk-up privileges as the rest of the school. Instead of lining up in the cafeteria, walk-up privileges will allow kindergarteners to enter the building through the yard doors nearest to Union Turnpike (by the basketball court). These are the same doors that every other grade uses in the morning. Kindergarteners will walk up the stairs and go directly into their classroom. Students will be considered late if they are not in their classrooms by 8:20am.
Some things to be aware of…
1. If your child is entering the building at 8:15, they probably will not be in class on time. Please allow your child a proper amount of time to walk up the stairs and down the hallway to their classroom. Once these doors are closed, the children will have to enter through the main doors as usual. Please do not use the main doors until the back doors are closed.
2. Parents are not permitted to walk their children up to the classroom. If your child needs assistance walking to their classroom in the beginning of the year, an older child can be asked to escort them up. To further assist kindergartners, red arrows will be placed in the hallway for them to follow until they arrive at their classroom. (This should not be a problem for them because this is the way we walk back up to our rooms every day after recess.)
3. The doors by the cafeteria may still be open in the morning to receive ONLY...
The bus children who come in before 8:00am, and
The children who participate in the morning or breakfast program. **Our kindergarten children should NOT be using these doors for entrance in the morning any longer.
