In-Person Learning Arrival/Dismissal Procedures
In case you missed it last week, check out this video ( you will need to download the video to view it) about what you can expect if your child is returning for in-person learning. A couple important reminders from the video:
Students and families are required to wear masks at all times while on Dalton’s campus, except during scheduled and supervised mask breaks at recess.
At arrival, students will line up at their designated location.
Parents who wish to, must wear a mask to walk their child to their arrival line.
Students will be dismissed from the same area, and parents may use the drive-through pick-up lane. Parents who are walking must wear a mask, wait in the designated waiting areas, and maintain social distancing from other families.
Please wait for students to come to you, rather than approaching the line of students leaving the building at the end of the day.
The Vision of Dalton Elementary is to provide engaging opportunities to learn and grow in an environment that challenges and nurtures all learners to achieve their goals and reach their full potential for personal and professional success.
Mission: In partnership with our community, our knowledgeable and dedicated staff will foster individual student success by:
Building strong relationships with students and families
Engaging students in high-quality, challenging, standards-based instruction
Developing students’ social and emotional skills in a safe, respectful, and positive learning environment
Recognizing the strengths and meeting the needs of our diverse students
Empowering students to take risks and achieve their goals
