Our School

March 31, 2021

Dear Families,

We are so excited to have you back. Students will be returning on Monday, 4/5/21 or Tuesday, 4/6/21 depending on the cohort you have been assigned. If you are unsure, you can refer to the letter we mailed to you the week of March 19th or call our office. Due to COVID restrictions we will not be allowed to have visitors or parents enter the buildings. So, we are using all of the back classroom doors for students to enter directly into their classroom. See the attached map with your child’s teachers name and room number.

Bus riders will arrive around 8:40. Walkers/Drop off should aim for 8:45-9:00. Classes will not be open before 8:35 and we will not have staff
supervising until 8:35. Each teacher will have a helper with a sign of the classroom teacher they are supporting to help students go to the right place. These helpers will be meeting students on the breezeway before school and helping them exit after school. See the map for your child’s entrance door. You may go to the end of the breezeway to walk students to meet their helpers.

Those students arriving in cars may enter from the back loop, which can be accessed off of 128th and Glisan and driving into our parking lot. We will help load/unload your child. If you want to walk them to meet their greeter you will need to park and then walk them up to the edge of the bus lane. Under the structure in the back there will be marks placed 6 feet apart for you to wait out of the rain if you are not in a car. At dismissal we will have someone there to meet your child. Please be sure your child eats breakfast at home as we will not be serving meals in school.

Each student will have the option to take meals to go everyday they are in school. We will help students put the meals into their backpack. IF your child has allergies, please notify our school office. If your child is doing CDL then meals will be available at all David Douglas Schools about 12-1PM. Our drinking fountains are turned off so send your child with a clean full water bottle. There is potable water in the faucets in the classrooms to refill bottles if needed. Please put all water bottles in Ziplock bags so they do not drip on the Chromebooks or other school materials.

Again, I can’t wait to see our students!!
