Student access to the building 
As we allow students to come into the building and complete their end-of-year checkout process,  we cannot emphasize enough that we will be adhering to and enforcing social distancing guidelines to the best of our ability. For all students and adults who enter the building, we ask that they wear face-coverings if at all possible.  We will also be encouraging 6 feet of distance between individuals while on campus.

We will have several stations throughout the building for students to accomplish the following tasks.  The tasks can be completed in any order.

- Students will enter through the main doors of Bowers’ Gymnasium to clean out their PE lockers

- If students do not come and clean out their belongings from their lockers, our custodial staff will bag their belongings and store them in the building until students can come to pick them up.  We will hold onto these items through Friday, May 22, 2020.  If students are not able to come to school on their designated day to get their belongings, they may come to school on Tuesdays from 8:00-12:00 pm to pick up their items.  If items are not collected by May 22, we will donate them to appropriate community agencies.
