  1. Pick-up and Drop Off Schedule

*Your pickup time is according to your LAST NAME.

*Please stick to your designated time slot for pickup, as we are trying to limit the number of students in the building at one time.

*Please enter through the main doors of the school.  Proceed to your teacher’s classroom(s) and pickup your items.  If you are a middle school or high school student, you will have to get all your textbooks/workbooks from your locker.

*If you have called the school to reserve a laptop/iPad, you will stop and pick it up from Mr. Ginsbach.  Mr. Ginsbach will be in the commons area.

*If you are a middle school/high school student, you will stop and receive your school email and login information from Mr. Ginsbach.  Mr. Ginsbach will be in the commons area.

*We ask that you do your best to get your items as quickly as possible.  Students and parents will receive teacher contact information on Monday, so there will be plenty of time to ask questions, etc., later.

*We thank all of you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation in these difficult and unfamiliar times.  We want nothing more than to have all the students in school.  We are doing our best to provide the best possible education we can with the parameters that the Governor and Department of Education has placed upon us.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call your teachers.  If you have a question for me, you can email me, contact me on the Remind App, or call.

As new information for our school community is available, we will keep you informed via our usual communication methods, which include Facebook, Remind app, school website and our phone messaging system if deemed necessary. We are working hard to make the best of the situation and appreciate the support. There will be some bumps and a learning curve as we move forward, but consistent and direct communication with the staff and school is appreciated. Remember, this is all new to everyone and unfortunately it is our reality for the time being.  Our staff is very flexible and want nothing more than to have normalcy with a building full of kids. We will get through this, but we all need to work together in these times.

With Rancher Pride,

Josh Page
