Back to School Info for Elementary Parents and Students School starts back on Monday, August 16th, at 8:00A -3:10PM. All procedures are for YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY Parent Drop Offs and Pick-Ups will be the same as last year (we will also temperature check students as they get on the bus or arrive on campus). K-2 students will be picked up and dropped off at the lower elementary building and 3-6 students at the main gym entrance. We ask that all vehicles dropping off students between 7:30-8:00AM or picking up students at 3:10PM should get in line, stay inside the vehicle, and remain in line until your child is dropped off or picked up (do not pass a vehicle in the drop-off/pick-up lines). Also, do not park in the parking lot to drop off or pick up a child. If you bring your child to school after 8:00AM, he/she/they should be dropped off at the elementary office (elementary library). If you need to speak with someone in person, please call the office to schedule a meeting. Lastly; we are still using the touchless bottle fillers, not the traditional water fountains, so each child will need a water bottle. Again, All of these procedures are for YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY. If you have any questions, call (870) 376-5416 or email shawn.rose@eagles1.k12.ar.us
