New drop off procedures for Kinder and 1st grade

Message from our principal Ms. Brookshire;
I want to make sure our Kinder and 1st grade students are safe in the morning at arrival time and I have found that the current system out on the playground leaves children in possible danger. Beginning on Tuesday, September 4th I want all Kinder students to go to gym starting at 7:45-8:10 and all 1st graders to go to the auditorium starting at 7:45 – 8:10. This way they are being supervised inside the building in a more structured and safe environment preventing any danger from injuries or getting lost or separated from teachers.
Thank you!
