The AM cohort begins at 9:05am and dismisses at 11:50am.

The PM cohort begins at 1:10pm and dismisses at 3:55pm.

Parents whose children will utilize bus transportation may check in ParentConnect for bus stop location and drop-off/pick-up times.

Please take some time over the weekend to revisit proper (i.e. thorough) handwashing with your children. While this is a topic our staff will also address regularly, hearing it from home and school will reinforce the messaging. 

Note that we have received updated guidance from our district Health and Wellness Director that masks must be worn by students even at recess. Additionally, note that neck gaiters and masks with valves are not acceptable. While visors are welcome, they do not take the place of a mask and should only be worn in addition to a mask. We also suggest you send a spare mask with your child in the event they sneeze, etc. into the mask they wear to school. We do have disposable masks here at school for children who need them.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures


  • Student drop off will begin at 8:55AM for the AM cohort and 1PM for the PM cohort. Do not let your child out of your vehicle until you see a staff member on duty in the car drop off line. Note this is later than prior years as our goal is to prevent students from congregating in lines or crowds and expedite movement directly to classrooms.
  • Students arriving by bus or by car will circle around the back of the building to directly enter their classrooms from the playground. First and second graders will go around the preschool side, kindergarten and 3rd graders will go around the fine arts wing side. Parents may park and walk their children to the classroom door, but will not be allowed to enter the building. Please be sure to mask up and practice social distancing should you pursue this option. And much as I'd love to see everyone's new puppy, please leave your furry friends at home if you plan to walk your child to their classroom. Classrooms will be marked, teachers will be waiting in the doorways, and staff will be on hand to assist students in finding the correct door. It would not be a bad idea to practice this routine with your child over the weekend if you have a few minutes to do so.
  • Students will wash hands immediately upon entering the classroom. 


  • This year we're changing the order of dismissal--bus riders will be dismissed first. Please make your best effort NOT to block the buses from exiting the parking lot as you wait in line. Leave a gap and do not block the driveway.
  • Students will exit their classrooms through the door to the playground, and walk around the school to the front of the building to board the bus. Staff will be on hand to supervise and assist. Again this year we'll be providing colored bracelets and back-pack tags to help students remember their assigned bus. Please do not remove the colored tag from the backpack. Note that there are no "guests" (i.e. playdates) allowed on our buses this year. 
  • Once bus riders have departed, classroom teachers will escort remaining students out through their classroom doors to the playground and walk them to the parking area behind the preschool (this will be blocked off--no parking) where they will wait until they are called to their family vehicle. If you choose to park and walk to greet your child, please wait for them in this area. Be sure to wear a mask and keep adequate social distance between yourself and others. Again, we ask that you do not bring a dog with you to greet your child.

We anticipate long waits in the pick-up line this year, please pack your patience and give yourself ample time, or if possible consider walking up to school to pick up your child.

Medications at School

If your child needs (or may need) medication administered at school, please click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the prescription and non-prescription medication forms. The prescription medication form must be completed by a physician. Both forms can be faxed to our office at 248.341.7399. Parents may call the office to arrange to drop off a child's medication, preferably on or before the first day students attend in-person.

If your child has a severe, life threatening allergy, please be sure to provide us an allergy action form (here is an example of a food allergy action plan) so we have clear, specific procedures to follow.

COVID pre-screen flyer

Families, staff, and visitors/vendors are required to complete the daily pre-screen before coming to school. Students (not currently enrolled in the Bloomfield Virtual program) will begin attending school in-person in the hybrid model according to the phase-in timeline and must complete the pre-screen daily.  

The pre-screen is available at and can be completed from any computer, tablet, or mobile device. Paper copies are also available for those who wish to print the checklist for a home reference.

Students and staff do not need to display a screen or paper upon bus or building entry according to guidance received from the Oakland County Health Division. Visitors/Vendors must complete the digital pre-screen prior to building entry and visitors/vendors will be greatly limited to minimize exposure risk. Student Athletes will also be required to complete the digital pre-screen prior to participation in athletics.

Thank you for your cooperation and daily diligence in this process!
