Back to Buildings for K-2

At the end of January, we will begin bringing our youngest learners back into classrooms:

Mon, January 25, 2021: 1st grade
Mon, February 1, 2021: Kindergarten

Back to Buildings: A Guide for our K-2 Families

Back to Buildings Plan - Frequently Asked Questions

Helpful Information ahead of Grades K-2 Returning:  Several key aspects to the return to in-person learning are important to review and begin planning for before students return. Please know:

  • Mask wearing is an expectation. We encourage students to begin practicing mask wearing now, particularly for longer periods of time.
  • Masks must be 2-ply, and gaiters or bandanas must be folded. Additional masks will be made available at school whenever needed.
  • Parents and guardians, and all non-critical visitors, will not be permitted on campus during in-person learning. Drop-off of items is limited to critical items only, such as medication. Drop-off of items deemed non-critical are prohibited (instruments, homework, projects, etc.).
  • Prior to students arrival each day, All parents and guardians must attest that their student is symptom-free via the daily parent/guardian health check Health Check website or other methods (phone call, written note). If a parent/guardian answers yes to any of the screening questions, the student will be asked to stay home.
  • Students should be prepared for colder conditions than normal inside school due to increased ventilation, including windows being open. Please ensure your student arrives to school dressed for such conditions.
  • Students attending in-person from 9:00-11:30 should eat breakfast prior to school. Students attending in-person from 1:00-3:30 should eat breakfast and lunch prior to arriving to school.
  • All schools will follow current guidelines for out-of-state travel by asking that students quarantine at home for 14 days upon returning. Be sure to communicate both with your student’s teacher and Puesta del Sol Attendance Office ([email protected]) if your student has traveled outside of the state and therefore needs to quarantine.
