We have been working on accommodating our additional car traffic in both the morning and the afternoon. To increase safety our traffic officer said to have everyone come in from the west. That means that all traffic will be in the right lane to enter the parking lot. At pick up, please pull all the way down to the end of the drive, to the adult. Cars will be loaded there.
Our school day is 8:46-3:47. If you are dropping off children, they will begin being released at 8:41 to go to their classroom. At the end of the day, car riders will be dismissed by car, all drivers will stay in their cars.
On Monday, Kindergarten students will have a shortened day. They will come late and leave early. Mrs. Litten's students will come at 9:45 and leave at 2:45. Mrs. McDonald's students will come at 10:00 and leave at 3:00. Please park along the sidewalk and a staff member will greet your child and take him/her to the classroom. At pickup, please park along the sidewalk and your student will be brought you. to. Meals are provided for students or students may carry their lunch. (Don't forget their Chromebook, cord, and mask.)
Welcome Back to all of our Kincheloe Families! We are excited to be returning to face to face learning on Monday, Oct. 12. I will be sharing numerous announcements throughout the next few days regarding the returning of Chromebooks, our Visitor Policy, drop-off and pick-up times and procedures, as well as items related to breakfast and lunch.
Kincheloe Families, student chrome books can be picked up today, Wednesday, or tomorrow, Thursday . They are available from 2:00 until 6:30. You will need $20 for the insurance payable in either cash or a check made out to Dowagiac Schools.
