Retrieval of Student Items

All administrators in ASD-W have received notification that students / parents can enter the school to retrieve students’ personal items beginning next week on Monday, May 4. Please note that entering our school to pick up your child’s items is optional.  If you choose not to make a visit to the school and do not want the items, that is perfectly fine. 

Each school is required to create and communicate their own process regarding school visits.  Should you have children that attend different schools, please refer to each school’s communication for information on their process. All schools will provide communication to their families by Friday, May 1.

Monday, May 4 is the only day in which Forest Hill Elementary will open our school to allow one parent / guardian (and the Forest Hill School Student if necessary) to enter the building.  We ask that if possible, no other family members make this visit so we can limit the number of people having contact and coming into and out of our building as per Public Health guidelines.

We suggest the following process to properly control the number of people in the building at one time:

Monday, May 4: 9:00 – 10:00 am students with the last names A-B, 10:00 – 11:00 am students with the last names C-G, 11:00 am – 12:00pm students with the last names H-L, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm students with last names M-R, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm students with last name S-Z, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm open for those who could not make the above times.

 

Tuesday, May 5 will be curbside pick up only from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.  If you choose this option, we ask that you call the school as you drive into the parking lot, give your student’s name and class and let us know what vehicle you are driving so we can bring the bag of your child’s items to your vehicle.

 

Please note the following processes that will be in place for pick up on Monday, May 4:

1.    Parents (and student if applicable) will be asked 3 critical questions about your current state of health.  You will only be permitted into the building if you can adequately answer these questions.

2.    You will be directed to the hand sanitizing station just inside the school (or you may wash your hands with soap and water in the designated bathrooms) with an opportunity to look at the items on the table in the lobby that have been unclaimed in our lost and found. 

3.    You will be directed to travel down the hall toward your child’s classroom where a bag labeled with your child’s belongings will be made available for you in the hallway.  Other unclaimed and unknown items that were in classrooms will also be on display on a table for you to pick up should they belong to you.  We will have extra bags on hand should you need one for these items.  Please do not bring your own bags.

4.    Upon receiving your bag of student items, you will continue down the hallway to the exit door.  Please note that there will be travel directions on the floor similar to what you have seen in grocery stores with the expectation that people will only travel in one direction to allow for proper physical distancing. Our staff will be available to guide and assist.

5.    These visits to pick up your items should take less than 15 minutes and we appreciate you picking up your items quickly to prevent others from waiting great lengths of time outside and to best follow Public Health guidelines.

6.    Classroom teachers will also be communicating with you regarding items that are in their classrooms that they are unsure who the owner is.  Please communicate with your child’s classroom teacher before Friday morning, May 1 if there are specific things you are concerned about making sure are in your child’s bag of belongings.

7.    If more than one of your children attend Forest Hill School, both child’s items will be able to be claimed in the Kindergarten wing.  This allows for better physical distancing and respecting the movement within the school.

8.    Please note that we are encouraging staggered times for coming to the school to allow for better physical distancing; however, if the time suggested above does not work for your schedule, you may come at the time that is most convenient. If neither Monday or Tuesday morning can work with your schedule because you are an essential worker, please email me directly at tracy.stewart@nbed.nb.ca to make other arrangements. Also important to note, that if you are required to wait outside to enter the building when you arrive, physical distancing is also required and waiting spots will be marked.
