Ellenville Elementary Arrival & Dismissal Protocols for Hybrid Instruction

UPDATE - Elementary school parents: if your child's dismissal procedure will change as a result of the updated plan, please re-submit the   Arrival and Dismissal Form.

The Elementary School is enacting several new arrival and dismissal protocols to help keep our students safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If your child will be returning for the Hybrid (in-person) learning, Cohort A or Cohort B, the following form MUST be completed for EVERY child by September 25, 2020:
  EES Arrival/Dismissal Form 2020-2021

Department of Health school bus capacity restrictions limit how many students can ride a bus. In order to maintain social distancing, the district's buses will operate at a reduced capacity (50%) of students provided all students are wearing their mask.

Once the Hybrid Instruction begins, change requests cannot be made last minute nor on a daily basis. If your child cannot ride their scheduled route, you will need to arrange transportation.

We require at least a week’s advance notice for all changes to a student’s transportation.

Students cannot go to a bus stop they are not originally assigned to. Bus drivers will be following the rosters given to them.

Our dismissal pick-up procedure will take a couple weeks to perfect. We ask that you are extremely patient while waiting for your child(ren.) Safety is very important to us and we will be checking every ID until we get to know the parent/guardian by face. If you are on a time restriction at the end of the day, we suggest that if your child(ren) are bus-eligible, you choose the bus method instead.
