    Kiss N Ride

    Kiss and Ride procedure update: The implementation of our temporary Kiss and Ride plan based on address was very successful, and we would like to continue to use this procedure for the remainder of the school year. As a reminder, families who live in South Bryan Village or Marne Point will enter Kiss & Ride using the front entrance of the school and families who live in Isenhower Terrace or North Bryan Village will use the side entrance of the school for Kiss & Ride pick up.

    New morning procedures: Students who arrive at school for breakfast in the mornings will be held in the Cafeteria until 8:05 at which time they will go to their class using the inside hallways, instead of exiting the building and walking around to the exterior waiting areas at the end of each hallway. This new procedure is to ensure students are monitored by school personnel from delivery at our school until departure. Students will no longer be allowed to exit the building from the cafeteria's external doors after breakfast. Students who do not choose to eat breakfast will continue to wait at the end of the hallway within the fenced in area of the school until 8:05 at which time they will be allowed to enter the building.
