Drop Off and Pick Up Procedure

Due to the higher level of community spread of COVID-19 in Texas, we have taken extra steps to create a safe environment for students, parents, and TMA staff. To that end, all programs will utilize carline for drop off and pick up, including Extended Day.

Teachers or staff members are responsible for ensuring the safety of your children, so please do not distract them during this time. Also, please model grace and courtesy by entering at the end of the carline, pulling up to the pavilion and waiting for a teacher to open the car door. Teachers and staff are not able to buckle children in due to COVID-19 concerns.

Infants, Toddler, and Lower Elementary students will enter through the exterior classroom doors to limit the use of our hallways. Early Childhood and Upper Elementary students will enter classrooms via the main hallway. Parents will not be allowed in the building unless it is an emergency to reduce the number of people coming into contact with other students and our staff.

Health screenings for infectious illness and symptoms noted below should be conducted by parents before arriving each day. We encourage parents to follow and we will follow the CDC COVID-19 School Symptom Screening Flowchart for evaluating a student with symptoms of infectious illness.

  • Fever of 100.4° F or higher, now or in the preceding 24 hours (or would have, but have used fever reducing medicine)
  • Cough (for students with chronic cough due to allergies or asthma, a change in their cough from baseline)
  • Difficulty breathing (for students with asthma, a change from their baseline breathing)
  • New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Known close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19

Staff and students will wash their hands with soap and water upon entering their class/building.

All children will be picked up through carline. A staff member will escort them from the classroom to the car.
