This will be an opportunity for students to return any school-issued items that they have at home and pick up some of the personal belongings that they left behind before Spring Break.
This event will take place over two days, with one full day dedicated to each grade level. Please read the details below for specifics on the dates and times for both grade levels, and for important information about the process we will be asking our parents to follow:
Grade Level Dates
7th Grade: Wednesday, May 20th
8th Grade: Thursday, May 21st
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Return & Retrieval Details
The drop-off and pick-up of items will all be conducted curbside on the east side of the campus, where our car-rider line usually forms. Parents will also follow the normal procedure for the car-rider line by entering and exiting via Sanders Street (see the map below).
Stations will be set-up on the covered sidewalk that runs the length of the school. All cars will stop at the Drop-Off Station, pulling up to the first available numbered cone. Here, parents and students will be able to return school-issued items and get instructions for how to proceed to the next stations (labeled in the map below) if they have belongings to retrieve. Due to current state regulations, it is important that parents and students remain in their cars throughout the process.
Items that Parents & Students May Need to Return:
School loaned band instruments
Athletic uniforms and equipment
Any other miscellaneous items issued by a teacher, sponsor, or coach
Items that Parents & Students May Need to Retrieve:
Medication - The nurse will be available curbside to distribute any medications still stored in the school’s clinic. Please note that medications can only be picked up by a parent or guardian.
Band instruments, music, and personal belongings from Band locker
P.E. uniforms and personal belongings from P.E. locker
Any personal belongings from Athletics lockers
A separate communication will be going out from teachers via their Canvas pages for any items that students may have left in their classrooms that they would like back. If found, these items will either be kept for students returning as eighth graders next year or sent on to the high school for students who will be freshmen at Magnolia West.
All staff working the stations will be in the recommended PPE for the safety of both your family and themselves. In the interest of their wellbeing and others participating, we ask that all parents self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the campus grounds. If you are exhibiting any of the following symptoms, please contact the campus to make arrangements at a later date to return and retrieve your child’s items. Symptoms of possible COVID-19 include:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Loss of taste or smell
Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100 degrees Fahrenheit
Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19
Our ability to close out this school year and prepare effectively for the next one really depends on school-owned items being returned for inventory and making sure students’ personal belongings are not left behind. I want to thank you in advance for taking the time and effort to attend this event next week so we can do just that.
