We are in the middle of June and everyone has found comfort in our new normal routine. Here are some pictures of what we do to get ready in the mornings, which has thankfully not changed much from its usual pattern.
At the entrance, everyone sprays sanitizer on their hands and stand in the entrance while they take off their shoes. One of our administrators takes everyone’s temperature during this time.
After putting shoes and socks away, they open their backpacks and hang their cups and towels on the rack. Lunch boxes and water bottles get put in their respective boxes. After that, they take out their sticker books and put their backpacks in their cubbies.
Our class teachers have sticker book and sign-in stations set up every morning. At the sticker book station, students take out their daily temperature sheets and contact books and put them in the proper boxes. Teachers help them find today’s date. A sticker of their choice marks the right spot.
Finished sticker books go in the blue basket, names are signed, and then the kids are welcome to grab their hat and shoes and play outside!
Once the weather gets colder we may start having students arrive in their uniforms to change out of, but for now we are spending our days in BOB shirts only.
Of course, Saturn class and Mercury class have known this routine for years, but these days Jupiters have also gotten used to it quickly!
It feels good to have a part of our daily schedule stay the same. We’re excited for more days ahead of us!
