Dr. Janean FriedmanDear Emmons Parents:

Our full in-person learning is almost here! We are excited to welcome back the students participating in the full in-person plan. The first day will be Wednesday, April 7th. I am listing some of the most important information that you need to know before Wednesday. Please make note of the following changes.

Drop-Off
Students should arrive between 8:15-8:30am. All students should self-certify before arriving. Please continue to use the stickers to show self-certification. No one will be permitted into the building before 8:15am. Students will report to their homerooms or first period classes.

Pick-up Procedures
Student Pick-up will be divided into 2 waves:
- Last name beginning with A-K should arrive between 3:20-3:29pm
- Last name beginning with L-Z should arrive between 3:30-3:39pm

We will have the students in two different spaces in the building. Please be respectful of the times. If you arrive early, you will be told to drive back around. We need to divide the pick-up times so that we reduce traffic congestion on Beach Grove Road. On Wednesday, your children will receive a sign for your car to use the rest of the year. For pick-up on Wednesday, please create your own sign with the students' last names prominently displayed in the car window.

Snack time
Snacks will only be allowed for K-4. Snack options are limited to cheese sticks, Cheezits, Goldfish crackers, Teddy Grahams, grapes, sliced apples or pears, dried cereal, and fruit snacks. Snacks should be in quantities which can be eaten within 5 minutes.

Lunch
Students must bring a cold sack lunch everyday unless they qualify for the free and reduced lunch service. Students will not have access to a microwave. Students should be capable of opening their own lunch items without assistance. Also, please send a water bottle with your child each day.

Remote Learning
Students who chose remote learning will be connected to the classroom between the hours of 8:30-3:30pm. Teachers will issue more specific schedules.

In-Person Learning Requirement
Students who chose in-person learning will not have the option of joining remotely unless they have a COVID symptom, quarantining, or awaiting COVID testing results. Please notify the attendance line as soon as possible by emailing attendance@emmons33.org if your child will be absent or needs to join remotely due to COVID related reasons. When you email, state the reason your child is absent and whether or not he/she will be joining remotely. If your student is eligible for the remote option, then the remote learning Zoom link will be opened. Please note that students can not join remotely arbitrarily. Many classes will not automatically have a remote link open because they do not have any remote learners.

Please see the FAQ document for full in-person learning. Please email or call the office if you have additional questions. Also, look for more specific information from the grade level teachers. We can't wait to see everyone on Wednesday!
