Trinity has made some tweaks to its arrival and dismissal procedures. All changes, are listed below, begin today (Sept. 21).
ARRIVAL FOR KINDERGARTEN AND OLDER SIBLINGS: Kindergarten students and their older siblings will enter at the North Door. We ask that you park and walk your child to the door. For the first week or so, there will be a teacher aid inside the door to direct the students to their kindergarten classroom. Please park in the far-north lot.
OLDER PRESCHOOL SIBLING ARRIVAL: The parents of preschool children can drop off older siblings at the main school door. A reminder that preschoolers should be escorted to the narthex door by one adult. A reminder to all parents: If you are walking a student to the building, you need to wear a mask.
HEALTH SCREENINGS: Beginning on Monday, if students forget their health-screening form, the only location to get a screening will be at the receptionist desk inside the main door to the school. Parents must ensure that they get their child to the main door if they need a screening. Remember that you may need to be present with your child, if they cannot answer the questions on the form.
CHANGES TO THE A-M DISMISSAL: Beginning on Monday (Sept. 21), families who have last names that begin with L or M will pick up at the Marquette Street parking lot. This DOES NOT apply to preschool or kindergarten families who have older siblings. You will still continue to pick up your preschooler or kindergartener at the north door and older siblings at the narthex/church doors. For those making the move, you will need to enter at the Marquette Street entrance. You will turn into the lot at the first turn. You will need to park and then display your name placard. Once your family name has been called by a person with a walkie-talkie, we ask that you put the name placard down.
DISMISSAL REMINDER: Reminder for A-M dismissal: Students in grades 1-8 will not be dismissed until 2:15 p.m. Remember that we have some preschool and kindergarten families who arrive at 2 p.m. to pick up. If they have older siblings, we would like them to be the first cars in the lines near the doors. If you have students only in grades 1-8 we ask that you not file into the line of cars until at least 2:10 p.m. We’ve run into problems with so many people being early that our preschool and kindergarten families sometimes can not get out of their parking spaces.
