We will three dates for students to clean out their lockers and retrieve belongings: June 16 (3rd floor), June 17 (2nd floor) and June 18 (1st floor). The appointment dates and times were shared with families on June 9.  We have created an appointment schedule that keeps students safe by ensuring physical distancing and also having staff on-hand to supervise the process.
Students will have 15 minutes to sign-in, retrieve their belongings, and sign-out. A video of the process is available at this link - 

For students with items to return to the school, such as musical instruments, textbooks, library books, or other school materials, we ask that you please label these items with your child’s name and homeroom class. We will have specific areas for students to drop these items as they enter the building.
Students that have to retrieve medical belongings, such as an EpiPen, can indicate what they need upon entry and we will make sure their belongings are available as they exit.
