Thursday, March 26th

Buses will not be transporting students to Athena Consolidated School on Thursday, March 26th.  Please follow the Alternate Student Transportation Plan outlined in the previous post.

ALTERNATE STUDENT TRANSPORTATION PLAN

In the event that buses are not running and school is open for regular classes, please follow the procedures outlined below.

We ask that you drop your child off at a designated area.  This area will be clearly marked upon your arrival and staff will be on hand to assist you.  Also, we ask that you drop your child off at a specified time according to your child’s grade.  This will help with the flow of traffic in the parking lot.

DROP OFF TIMES

8:05 – 8:25 Students in Kindergarten to grade 3 along with their siblings.

8:25 – 8:45 Students who are in grades 4-9

TWO LANES

*The first lane (on the right, closest to the curb) will be the drop off lane for parents.

*The second lane (on the left) will be for bus traffic only or for staff going into the parking lot.  These two lanes will be divided by pylons.

  • When dropping off children, we ask parents/guardians to not get out of their cars.  Staff will be on hand to assist.

PICK UP

2:50-3:10 Students from Kindergarten to grade 3 and their siblings will be lined up outside with their teacher.  Parents of those students will enter the school parking lot pulling up to the right lane for pick up.

3:10-3:30 Students from grades 4-9 will be lined up outside with their teacher.  Parents of those students will enter the school parking lot pulling up to the right lane for pick up.

* Parents may want to consider parking in the movie theatre parking lot and walking over to the school to pick up their child.

*Parents will not be allowed to pick up another person’s child without the school receiving verbal or written consent from that child’s parents.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in dealing with these unusual circumstances!
