Welcome Back to School Graphic  2022-2023 Eugene Field Elementary

Hello Pirate Families! 
Meet the teacher night is Monday August 22nd from 4-5:30pm.

As we prepare to welcome students to the 2022-2023 school year, we will continue with mitigation measures to help lessen the spread of COVID-19. This information is specific to Eugene Field and many cleaning procedures and safety protocols from the 2020-2021 school year will continue to be followed. Please read this information carefully and email me at [email protected] with any questions that you may have. I look forward to a wonderful year with you and your family.

Embedded Safety Procedures:

  • Masks will be OPTIONAL for students and staff.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at various locations throughout the building - Upon entry of the building - Before and after lunch - Before and after recess
  • Hand washing and sanitation will be embedded into daily schedules to ensure the safety of our students and staff
  • Supplies will be sanitized between uses and between centers/stations
  • Playground equipment will be sanitized daily and the number of students using equipment at any given time will be limited
  • All desks and chairs will be sanitized at the end of the day by our custodial staff
  • Teachers will have cleaning protocols embedded into their daily schedules
  • Social distancing will be practiced when possible

Arrival: Begins at 7:30 am Students will enter the Northeastern doors of Eugene Field on Houston Street. This will be clearly marked for drivers. Someone will be by the door until 8:05 If you arrive after 8:05, students can walk to the front door and buzz in. Parents will not be allowed inside during drop off. Please do not drop your child off before 7:30 or allow your child to walk to school early as there is no supervision, making social distancing difficult. 

Pre-K: Doors open as early as 7:30 and students will enter the southeastern doors of Eugene Field on Houston St. If they have an older sibling, the sibling can enter the southeastern doors as well.

Dismissal: Begins at 3:10 pm Please have the yellow Car Rider Sheet filled out in marker, written with large print and displayed during pick-up. Vehicles will pull up to the large tree on Houston St. for pick-up. Walkie-talkies will be used during dismissal to maintain social distancing and safety of students. Students will remain in the building until their name has been called. 

If students are walkers - they will be dismissed prior to car riders and escorted by a staff member across the crosswalk on Market Street. Students will only be considered walkers if a parent is not coming to meet them, if a parent is coming to meet a child, please stay in the car rider line. Our line moves quickly - about a 12 minute process when everyone follows the procedures set into place. Parents may not congregate in front of the building before or after school - please remain in your vehicles in the designated car rider line.

This is a great deal of information, however we want to be sure all procedures are being followed by faculty and staff as well as parents and students to ensure the safety of everyone.

Again, do not hesitate to reach out with questions about our safety procedures.
