Dear Mary E Dardess Families, 

Welcome back! 

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer.  I am so excited to welcome all of our students back next week!

I want to share some information with you regarding arrival and dismissal procedures for students who are not taking the bus.  Like last year, students who are not taking the bus can be dropped off in the front of the building in either the inner or outer circle.  If your child needs to cross from the outer circle, please make sure they do so with an adult at the crosswalk.  Students can be dropped off between 7:45-8:00.  Students will enter the building via the designated door for their grade level.  There will be no need for temperature taking or health screenings prior to entering the building.  Please remember, if your child feels sick you need to keep him or her home, as well as siblings, and call the office. 

If you are picking up your child/children, the procedure will be similar to last year, but there will be no staggered times.  Students will be picked up outside at the door on the far left of the building near our gymnasium.  Parents will sign out students and wait outside for their child.  Please remember to practice social distancing.  Pick-ups will start at 2:10.

Please reach out if you have any questions.  Thank you in advance for your continued support.
