Thayer Year-end drop-off and pick-up procedures
Thayer Elementary parents should drive around to the back of the school and park in the teacher parking lot. At Thayer only, a parent will be allowed to enter the school through the back door of the gym to drop off materials in the cafeteria. Ten or fewer parents will be allowed inside the building at one time to drop off student supplies and pick up personal items. Parents who are standing outside waiting must observe social distancing. If at all possible, parents are asked to come alone, due to the COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines.
Thayer Elementary parents may drop off and pick up items at the school during the following times on May 26 and May 27, based on the first letter of the child's last name as follows:
May 26 & 27, 2020 - see set times in chart below
Alternative time and date: 3 to 6 p.m. May 27. Parents may return items any time from 3 to 6 p.m. on May 27, regardless of their child's last name.
For more information or if you are unable to drop off your child's items at the designated times, please call Thayer Elementary at 573-842-2200.
Q & A for year end procedures
1. May I drop off all of my children’s items at each of their schools on one day?
Yes, but please contact each of your children’s schools to let them know in advance that you will be dropping off items “off schedule” so that staff members may prepare your children’s items in advance of your arrival.
2. Will I drive up the same way I always do?
In most cases, yes, however, we ask that you follow the signage at each building and adhere to the entrance and exit signs to allow for a smooth flow of traffic.
3. Should my child keep his/her computer for summer school?
Yes. If your child plans to attend either the June and/or July session of summer school, your child should keep their computers so that they may use them during summer school.
4. What if I am unable to return items because of transportation or health issues?
Please contact Community Resources Office at 573-842-2250 to make arrangements for the items to be picked up.
5. How will my child’s items be returned to me?
All of your child’s personal items will be gathered and placed in a bag with your child’s name on it and given to you during this exchange.
6. Should I wear a mask?
All participants will be asked to maintain social distancing during the exchange process. School personnel will be wearing masks and parents are asked to do so as well, if possible.
7. Will you still hold the drop-off/pick-up exchange if it is raining?
Yes. Providing there is no threatening weather, we will continue the exchange.
