We miss you and we hope that you are finding ways to cope with the
challenges of sheltering in place.  We know it has been difficult!

Many of you have been asking about retrieving items from your locker, and
we have been working on a plan.  Due to the current school closure, we will
have a one week period at the end of May when students may come to campus
to clean out lockers, collect personal belongings, and return library and
textbooks, from May 26 - June 2. In order to maintain health and safety and
limit the number of individuals on campus at a given time, students will
follow a staggered schedule and may come to campus at designated times
based on grade level and last name. Please review the ‘locker clean out
schedule’ at the end of this message for your assigned date and time.

As always, please follow these familiar guidelines when coming to campus:


   If you are sick or symptomatic, stay home.

   Wash your hands before coming to campus. School restrooms will be open
   for handwashing on campus.

   All individuals entering the campus will be required to wear a face

   Maintain a minimum of 6 feet social distancing at all times.

Students will enter and exit at the Kittredge doors (Kittredge and Milvia
St.). There will be a library and textbook drop-off box located at the
Kittredge entrance for all students to return books. Art teachers will
reach out to their students with specific guidelines for picking up and
returning projects and materials. School safety officers will be present on
campus to ensure health and safety practices and provide assistance.

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we find new ways of working
together as a community and adapt to change. Stay strong, and stay healthy!
