Back to School Powerpoint - This would be "New to Blue" for our New Families! We are so glad you are with us! Thank you for understanding that this is not a typical year. :-)  Updated-Welcome to Bluewater Video  Bluewater Basics (PP set to music)


UPDATED with video-As we conduct mandatory temperature checks, students will only be able to enter the building in one of four locations--- front Bike Rack (walkers), Parkwood 

NO walk ups signGate (walkers), Car Rider Ramp, and Bus Ramp.  We are anticipating high traffic volume on the car rider ramp at arrival and dismissal, therefore we will route traffic through the side parking lot.

Parents WILL NOT be able to park and walk their child up to the front of the building or front sidewalk. Adults should remain in their vehicles at all times. Parents of walkers should stop at the bike rack (front and back of the school) If you arrive to school in a car, you are a car rider and should proceed through the car rider line.  There will be no left turns from the side parking lot. All traffic will be routed through the car rider ramp. Thank you for helping to reduce possible exposure for our students and employees by following these guidelines.
