Once your child's teacher has been announced, you will receive an email from them with options for time slots. Follow the link to sign up for your slot. If you are unable to bring your child, see if a family friend, relative, or classmate is available. During your time slot, your family will - - Drive through and locate your teacher (see attachment) - Pull up to their location (wait in line if someone is already there) - Roll down your windows and have your child introduce themselves - Remain in your car with masks on for both your family & our staff's safety - Give your child's school supplies to their teacher so they don't have to bring everything the first day of school If there is inclement weather, our rain date will be Wednesday, August 19 from 3-6PM.
