North Preschool drop-off and pick-up procedures:
The drop-off and pick-up area for North Preschool classes is marked by a sign on the the upper traffic circle, opposite the North School MPR and is accessed from the Crocker School entrance on Ralston Ave. Teacher Marcia and Teacher Claire will be at that spot, by 8:30 and 11:45 respectively. When the driver pulls up to the drop-off/pick- up sign the teachers will take the child’s temperature and assist them in getting out of the car, with their back pack (containing a lunch or snack, a mask, and whatever school material that is needed) as the parent or caregiver signs-in the child on the clipboard provided–using the driver’s own pen. The children will wait at a designated gathering place with a teacher until all children are signed-in. The pick-up/sign-out process which takes place at 11:00 and 3:15, while similar, will be easier as the temperature check will not take place.
If the child has a temperature of 100.4oF or greater, the teacher will take the temperature a second time with a different thermometer. If it is still at or above 100.4o the driver can pull around, wait in your car for 15 minutes and try again. If it is still at or above that temperature the child must be taken home.
At this time parents may not walk their children to the classroom.
Please remember that these procedures are new to all of us, and adjustments may be necessary.. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time. If you have any questions please feel free to let us know.
