Elmira Elementary School


Rilke Klingsporn


It’s hard to believe, but the first day of school is almost here! We are so excited to welcome our students to a new school year! Here are some details:

  • Tuesday September 7 – 1st day of school for students in grades 1-5
  • Monday September 13 – 1st day of school for kindergarten students
  • Doors open at 7:30am
  • School starts at 7:55am and ends at 2:25pm
  • On Wednesdays, we have early release and school ends at 12:45pm
  • 1st grade students will enter through the south door, 2nd/3rd grade students will enter through the main office door, and 4th/5th grade students will enter through the playground door on the north side of the building. Directional signs will be posted, and staff available to help.
  • Kindergarten students will enter at either the south door or the playground door, depending on which teacher/classroom they have.
  • All students will be screened at entry for visible symptoms, and checked to be sure they are feeling well.
  • Once students have entered the building, they can go to the cafeteria to get breakfast or go straight to the classroom.
  • Due to health precautions, we are not able to invite any family members or volunteers inside the building this year, even on the first day of school. Staff will be helping ensure students get to the correct locations.
  • There will be photo backdrops available near each entrance on the first day of school (kindergarten too!).
  • Masks are required while at school, per State of Oregon requirement. This includes all indoor areas except while students are eating. Recess and outside PE do not require masks.
  • If your child has a primary COVID symptom, we will call home and your child will be need to be picked up: Fever (100.4 or higher), Shortness of breath/trouble breathing, or a Cough. Please do not send your child to school with any of these symptoms. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy!
  • If your child develops COVID symptoms while at school, we have the ability to provide a rapid self-administered COVID test. Tests will only be provided for students who have signed parental permission on file.
  • Parking/drop off: the north parking lot (closer to the field/playground) is for staff parking and the bus loop. Families, please use the south parking lot. If you need to exit your car to assist your student, want to walk them to an entrance, or want to take a picture – please park in a spot and do not block/stop the drop off lane.
