URGENT CTE PICK-UP/DROP-OFF PROCEDURES
With our final week of school upon us, I wanted to remind you of our pick-up/drop-off schedule for May18 - May20. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to pick up school items as well as return any school items. We have a good plan in place but as always, this is the first time we have ever attempted something like this so bear with us, we may have a few growing pains at first. Please see the reminders below:

  • Please come to the school during your scheduled window of time. The times are based on the first letter of your last name. 
  • When arriving at CTE please have your last name on a piece of paper in your windshield so we know whose bag to grab and bring out
  • Keep anything being returned to CTE in the trunk of your car
  • There will be three stops (see map below):
       1. Book/misc. drop-off/ Bag pick-up
       2. Tech drop-off - Remember, when returning tech (device and power cord/brick), please bring the device charged as we will need to turn it on
           CTE and District loaned devices should be returned during this time!
       3. Medication pick-up
  • You may retrieve/return items for others as long as you denote the names on the sheet of paper in your windshield
  • Feel free to come at any point during the window of time. We don't want to have people waiting for a long time so if the parking lot is full and you can come at a later time please do so. 
  • May 18 - 8:30 - 12:00 - 1:00 - 3:00.   A - J
  • May 19 - 8:30 - 12:00 - 1:00 - 3:00.   K - Z
  • May 20 - 8:30 - 12:00 - Any leftovers

We can't wait to see you (if only for a few minutes) and please make sure you stay in your vehicle. We want everyone to have a safe and fun summer. See you next week.
