EVE's Hybrid Learning - Safe Return Plan - April 2021
Parents and Families,
We were very excited when we received news from the Yakima Health Dept. that students would be returning to a full-day schedule on April 26, 2021. The intent of this letter is to describe changes to our daily routine, until the end of the year.
Safety Protocols: East Valley School District will continue with the daily attestation (golden ticket), temperature checks, masking and social distancing. Students will remain in their classroom cohort, as much as possible throughout the day.
Daily Schedule: School Hours will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:55am to 3:25pm and Wednesdays from 8:55am to 11:55am. Doors will not open until 8:40am. It is important that students not be dropped off prior to that time.
Lunches: Students will eat outside, weather permitting, following six foot or greater distance. Lunches will be available to all students, free of charge, for the remainder of the year. Menus will be posted on the district website and are subject to change without notice. If students bring lunches from home, please note that microwaves will not be available. Lunches will be served Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. No breakfasts will be served at school. Bulk meal distribution will continue on Wednesdays at EVC, Terrace Heights and Moxee for district families.
Recess: The playground has been divided into four zones. Each class will remain with their class cohort reducing potential exposure. Students will rotate zones throughout the week. Masks will be worn at recess.
Busing and student pick-up: Elementary and secondary students will no longer be sharing the same bus, therefore allowing for ample room. In order to reduce parking lot congestion and traffic flow on Beaudry Rd., we encourage bus transportation. Parents will still be required to remain in cars for student pick-up. Bus route times will be posted on EVSD website.
Medication and Healthcare Needs: If your student requires medication or will have healthcare needs at school, please contact Melody-Ann Luke 573-7632 prior to April 21, to help us plan for your child’s needs.
