NEW KISS & RIDE PROCEDURES
We will be changing the way we are conducting our Kiss & Ride. On the first day of students returning to school, Kiss & Ride students and parents will receive a number that is to be displayed on the right front dashboard of their car. The students will also receive a matching number that will be placed on their jacket or backpack. This new system will allow us to safely call students to the Kiss & Ride Areas with social distancing in place. Please encourage your child to memorize their number.
At the end of the day, Kiss & Ride traffic will enter our Kiss & Ride area and pull up past door 11. When you arrive at the Kiss & Ride, please remain in vehicle while your child is called. It is important that your Child be able to enter the vehicle independently. Staff will be present to supervise students entering and exiting the building.
Master Schedule & Lunch Information
Our Master Schedule will continue to keep the same break and lunch schedule for both in-person and virtual learners. The Revised schedule (see attached) includes a handwashing schedule for before/after mask breaks, lunch, and recess. Students are allowed to bring their own lunch or participate in a free ‘grab & go’ breakfast and/or lunch. Here is the link to the menu: https://fcps.nutrislice.com/menu/spring-hill-elementary
Meals are also available for free for students who are not returning to school and are available to be picked up between 12:13-12:23pm in front of the school.
We had our RTS meeting with parents this past Tuesday and it was well attended. We answered all the questions and parents have a better understanding of what to expect.
Here is the link of the recording. It is 58 minutes long. The slide deck is also attached.
As many students return to in-person instruction, parents and caregivers will be asked to acknowledge a Health Screening Commitment form before their student(s) re-enter school buildings. This document confirms that a parent, caregiver, or guardian will complete a daily health screening and will keep their students home when they are ill.
The Health Commitment form can be submitted electronically through ParentVUE (PVUE) or via hard copy. Please contact your child’s school to have a hard copy sent to you.Make Up Picture Day
Our make up picture day will be on Friday March 5th from 12PM-7PM. These pictures will be done via drive-by and masks will be required (will be allowed to remove for photo). Parents will drive up to the side door near the cafeteria/stage. A volunteer from our school will bring your child from your vehicle into the cafeteria. After their photo is taken your child will be brought to your vehicle at the double doors on the side of the cafeteria (Door #2). Please use the link below to reserve a slot for your child(ren).
**This is a new sign up, if you were signed up for Thursday 2/18, you will need to sign up for a new slot. Signs up were not transferred to the new date.**
