Upper School Pick-up & Drop-off Information

Posted on: May 08, 2020

Dear Upper School Students:

On Friday, May 15, you need to be prepared to come to school to clean out your locker, retrieve belongings from the school (including artwork, athletic gear, etc), and return items that belong to the school. Please bring a bag or box to transport your belongings, including any belongings in the WAC or the locker rooms. Also, please bring all materials you are required to return to the school. Faculty and/or coaches should send you an email notification if you are required to return any equipment or materials.

Please keep your school ID card in a safe place during the summer until the next school year. If the ID card is lost, a fee of $20.00 will apply at the beginning of the next school year to reprint a new ID card.

EXPECTATIONS FOR SAFETY:

  • IF YOU HAVE A FEVER OR FEEL ILL, PLEASE DON’T COME TO SCHOOL
  • WEAR A FACE MASK (WE HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF BANDANAS)
  • DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE AFTER ENTERING
  • USE HAND SANITIZER BEFORE ENTERING AND AFTER EXITING (the school will have sanitizer available at entrances)

We have created a system that we believe will allow safe pick-up and drop-off, so please make sure to read the following information carefully and please adhere to the instructions specifically.

1. COME TO THE UPPER SCHOOL FIRST

First Step: Come during your designated time***:

PICK-UP TIMES FOR ALL UPPER SCHOOL GRADES
1-2 p.m. Last Names: A – G
2-3 p.m. Last Names: H – M
3-4 p.m. Last Names: N – S
4-5 p.m. Last Names: T – Z

***If your designated time doesn’t work for you, please contact Dr. Berglund and Ms. Udwin to arrange for an alternate time.

Second Step: Come to your designated area:

9th grade: Doors on patio near Fondren-Bales’ office
10th grade: Main wooden doors
11th grade: Mini commons doors in back
12th grade: Nancy O’Neil’s door

***If your designated time doesn’t work for you, please contact Dr. Berglund and Ms. Udwin to arrange for an alternate time.

Third Step: If you have any materials that you need to drop off at the Upper School, go to your designated area. On a piece of paper, you will write your name and the name of the faculty member to whom the item(s) needs to be returned. You will tape the paper to the item. (FOR ARTS AND ATHLETICS ITEMS, SEE BELOW)

Fourth Step: At a safe distance, wait for the Faculty Door Monitor to let you enter the building. You should go only to the places where you need to retrieve items. Please do not stop to have conversations with others, and make sure you maintain a safe distance from students at ALL TIMES. Please remove ALL ITEMS from your locker, and take them with you.

Fifth Step: When you have retrieved all of your items, please return to the SAME DOOR you entered from. If you purchased a yearbook, pick it up. Make sure to check out with the Faculty Door Monitor.

If you aren’t in arts or athletics, you are free to go. If you are in either or both, see below:
