Welcome back to school announcements for the 2020-2021 school year
We are looking forward to school beginning on Tuesday, September 1st. The Cavalier Publoic School Restart committee, administration, and school board approved our Health and Safety Plan on August 3rd. This document, which is posted on the school website, contains many specifics on the changes put in place to assist in keeping students and staff as safe as possible in dealing with COVID-19. A few reminders as students and their families prepare for the first day of school:
**Door #8 will not be available for use on the first day of school. The concrete work will not be finished until Wednesday, September 2nd. We will meet Pre-K thru grade 2 students at Door #5 and then walk them around to Door 6 and Door 7 to enter the school. We apologize for the inconvenience on the first day.
- Bus drivers will be taking temperatures of students as they board the bus each morning Masks are required to ride the school bus.
- All other students will be temperature checked as they enter the building in the morning.
- Students will not be allowed into the building until 7:50 am each day. Please do not drop off until then unless they plan to wait outside.
- There will be no morning recess for the elementary.
- Every student should have a mask with them at school each day. Masks are encouraged, but not required to be worn in the building, unless physical distancing cannot be maintained for more than 15 minutes.
- We ask that students enter designated doors of the building each day to help alleviate congestion and lines

- Families need to pre-screen their child(ren) each morning to answer the following questions in deciding whether or not to send their child to school:
Has your child had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
Does your child have a new or worsening shortness of breath?
Does your child have new or worsening cough?
Does your child have a fever of 100.4 or greater?
Does your child have chills?
Does your child have a sore throat?
Does your child have a new loss of taste or smell?
Has your child vomited more than 2 times in the last 24 hours, unless determined to be caused by a non-communicable condition and is able to remain hydrated?
Has your child experienced diarrhea and cannot self-contain stool?
*If you answer YES to any of these questions--Do not send your child to school. Contact your healthcare provider. Contact your child’s school to inform them of your child’s absence.
*If you answer NO to all questions, go to school.
- Main Street on the south side of the school will be open by September 1st. I would encourage traffic to move in an east to west direction to drop off students at both the elementary (#5) and middle school (#14) doors. This will help keep a steady flow of traffic.
- Especially with elementary students, teachers can take “1st Day of School”pictures with their teachers and they will post and/or contact via Remind.
- More information about the 1:1 Chromebook device user fee of $25 for students in grades 9-12 and device distribution will be sent out next week.
