COVID Safety First

We are working diligently and thoughtfully to open our doors safely:

  • We are opening with smaller class sizes to maintain 3 feet of separation.
  • Students will eat breakfast and lunch supervised in their classrooms.
  • Every person in the building is required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Parents of students in grades K-12 are asked to complete the COVID testing permission form. Random testing will take place every two weeks in school.

Session Times

Below is some basic information to help you plan for the school year. Remember that important updates, announcements, resources, and the school calendar are posted to PS14inCorona.org
The first day of class for students is Monday, September 13th.

  • Every morning, every adult and child entering the building must show the health screener by logging in and answering a few questions. Please be patient with your fellow families as everyone learns how to complete and show the “green screen” at the door.  see the  tutorial on completing the screener.
  • Drop off begins at 8:00 am and class begins at 8:05 am.
    • Grades K and 1 arrive in the back of the building, closer to 108th
    • Grade 2 arrives in the back of the building, closer to Van Doren Street
    • Grades 3, 4, and 5 arrive on Van Doren
  • Dismissal is 2:25, though dismissal for Kindergarten will begin at 2:15 and dismissal for first grade will begin at 2:20. This is to ensure distance between classes and a very safe dismissal.
