    Hello Olympic View Families,

    I am excited to announce that I will start doing "Curbside Checkout" for students starting Monday, September 28th. This is all experimental, so please know that I may tweak this to better suit everyone’s needs. Here are the current plans and details:


    When: Begins September 28th and runs Monday & Thursdays from 3pm-6pm
    Where: Olympic View “curbside”, (exact location to be determined, either in courtyard or by front door)
    Why: To ensure students have access to quality books weekly
    How: Students can place books “on hold” via the catalog and come pick up curbside. If you place a book on hold, please come pick it up within a week, or I will take the hold off the book.


    Policies

    • All students can have 3 books per week
    • Please return books in a timely matter, as books need to be quarantined for 4 days once they are returned
    • Placing books on hold is the best way to get the book you want
    • Students can have 1 graphic novel at a time
    • Try to come at your allotted grade level time, but I will allow for flexibility
    • Thursday from 4-6pm is a time to come if you were not able to come at your allotted time
    • All COVID protocols will apply: 6 feet distancing, face masks and pick up will be outside the building


    Pick up Schedule

    Monday
    3pm-4pm Kindergarten book pick up
    4pm-5pm 1st grade pick up
    5pm-6pm 2nd grade pick up

    Thursdays
