CoVid- 19 Protocols Revisited

·         We are experiencing an increase in the number of CoVid-19 cases in Greenville County. To make certain we are doing our part to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our community and our school, please report any known exposure or positive CoVid tests to the HMS administration, even if it was at the beginning of our winter break.

·         Students must wear masks at ALL TIMES in the building, unless eating lunch or when social distancing is possible. We will have “mask breaks” throughout the day with fresh air outside.

 

ADJUSTED DROP OFF TIMES IN THE MORNING

Please drive up to the furthest drop-off point to allow for more cars to stack in the line. There is a sign on the curb that states “pull all the way up to this point”. Please do not use the parking lot entrance on Garrison Road. All car riders dropping off in the front of the building should use the large carline loop.

 

With the full population of students in the building and the need to maintain social distancing, we will be moving to a staggered drop-off schedule in the mornings;

Grade 6:          7:45 am                      

Grade 7:          7:55 am            

Grade 8:          8:05 am

Please do not drop students off before 7:45 am.

 

Afternoon Carline Pick-up

As a reminder, all vehicles picking students up in the afternoon should be using the designated carlines, not the parking lot in front of the school or anywhere along the road. The last pickup time for early dismissal is 2:45 pm. The left turn into the parking lot off of Garrison Road will be blocked at 2:45 pm by our School Resource Officer to prevent this traffic flow and ensure the safety of our students.
