Tomorrow we are back to school!
September 2, 2019
Dear ASB Families,
Happy Labor Day! We are so excited for the first day of school tomorrow!
If you were here on Open House, you saw that we are truly under construction. As we begin this year, it is imperative that everyone follow all traffic and safety protocols beginning the first day. It is also imperative that we are patient, cooperative, and work together for smooth operations of our school day.
Tomorrow morning you may drop off in two locations:
- Loop- Loop is in the main parking lot. You may enter into lot directly off 65th and use one of two lanes to enter loop. You may also turn right off of 65th onto 33rd, then right into the loop entrance. Students should exit cars on the south side of loop, closest to school building, when a parent volunteer opens the door for them.
- When you exit the loop, proceed south on 33rd to 62nd. You may turn left onto 62nd to exit or right on 62nd to exit with other traffic line. Please do not proceed south on 33rd past 62nd.
- 62nd drop off – You may turn right or left off of 65th to head south on 33rd, turn right on 62nd and drop off students when a parent opens the door. Then turn right on 32nd to exit towards 65th.
There is NO dropping off or picking up along 32nd or 33rd. The same procedures should be followed for afternoon pick up.
Parents on traffic duty must sign in the office. Please remember that failure to sign in is a $50 fine. Parents should plan on signing in by 8:15 or waiting until after their duty is over at 8:35. Between 8:15 and 8:35, parents will be held at the main entrance to let all of the first, second, third and fourth graders get to their classrooms in a timely manner. Parents will then be buzzed in by the main office.
Please remember that if you are coming to the main office, you should not stop at classrooms along the way.
We are also asking that parents not park and walk students up to school after the first day. Parking needs to be reserved for our Pre-K families who are legally required to park, walk their child in, and sign in at the classroom. Please remember that anytime you park, do so legally and respect our neighbors.
We know many of you will want to park and walk up the first day. Again, please do so legally. This means you may have to walk a few blocks.
Please plan to join our Parent Board at Bryant Corner at 8:35 AM on the first day for a Back-to-School Coffee & Social Hour! Thank you to our Parent Board and thank you to Bryant Corner for hosting.
All of this information, including detailed maps and instructions, can be found here on our website. It will take us some time to get into this new routine, but if everyone is patient, follows protocol, and remembers that this is all for the safety of students, it will go just fine!
See you tomorrow!
