Students are to walk on the right side of the hallway.   Mrs. Richardson and Mrs. Schneider will assist students in getting to class.

  •  4th and 5th Grade students will be dropped off on Madison and enter through the front door.  4th and 5th grade students will go directly to the gym. 4th and 5th grade students will be dismissed from the gym at 7:35. They will walk around the library in the courtyard and enter the 4th and 5th grade wing. Students will walk down the hall on the right side of the hallway and make their way to their classroom. (Drop off on Madison will help with the flow of traffic)

If you have multiple children you are dropping off, drop all of them off at the youngest child’s designated drop off spot.

  • If your child arrives after the 7:45 bell, they will need to access the front door since all gates are locked at 7:45.  Students are asked to go directly to their classrooms after checking in at the office.

  • Once students are all in the classroom, have them sanitize their hands or wash their hands.

Breakfast: 

Breakfast will be provided in the classrooms as in years past.  The morning show, bell ringers, and various activities will begin at 7:45.

Lunch:

Students will be provided free lunches again this year.  Parents will not be allowed to eat lunch with their children due to COVID protocols.  Students may still bring their lunch from home.  We are also not allowing fast food items to be dropped off to students in the office as to minimize traffic and exposure to the campus.  Additional lunch information such as menus, pricing, creating lunch accounts, etc. can be found on the SAISD web page under the “Families” tab and on the Santa Rita PTO Facebook Page.

Dismissal Times:  Parents are to remain in their cars.

2:45 and 2:50 Dismissals:

  • Kinder and 1st Grade Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 2:45 on Avenue D. 1st Grade students will be dismissed at 2:50 on Avenue D under the awning.  Parents of these students are asked to access the campus from Live Oak and turn south on Monroe then proceed left onto Avenue D pulling up to the curb so the student(s) can get into the vehicles. Parents are asked not to get out of the vehicles.

(If you have multiple children, pick up students at the oldest siblings designated spot)

  • 2nd Grade will be dismissed at 2:50 on Monroe behind the school.  Parents are asked to access the campus on Monroe from the south.  Classes will be waiting on the rock wall for pick up.  Once you have your child, if you could turn left on Avenue H to help minimize traffic elsewhere, it would be greatly appreciated.

We are asking all parents to keep updated phone numbers in the office.  We must be able to reach you in case of an emergency.  

Your support in following the previous procedures will help us promote a positive, safe environment for your child.  There is a map included on the next page to share the flow of traffic in the event you need it as a reference.  Thank you again in advance for your patience and understanding.
