SUBJECT: **Date Change** June 5 - 9: Retrieving your student’s belongings from school

Greetings Families,

As we approach the end of the school year, I want to share with you details on when and how you will be able to retrieve your student’s belongings that may have been left behind when school buildings were closed by Governor Walz.

Using safety precautions such as wearing gloves and masks, school staff will gather your student’s belongings and place them in a bag(s) which will be labeled with your student’s name. 

Families are being assigned a specific date and time from June 5-9 to pick-up the bag(s) based on your student’s last name as indicated in the chart below. Families can come at any point within that time span indicated in the chart below.

Families with more than one child at our school will get all their children’s belongings on the same date, even if their last names are different. The pick-up date will be based on the child whose last name is closest to the start of the alphabet, for example, if your children’s names were Jane Doe and Frank Smith, you would pick up both their belongings on Jane’s date/time: June 3 between 10:00am and 12:00 pm. 

Please make sure if your child/ren have a band instrument / or media books to return that you bring them with you when you come to the school for pick-up of belongings.  4th graders may keep their instrument over the summer but, 5th graders must return them.  You may hand the instruments / or books to one of the staff members assisting you during pick-up. 

To ensure everyone stays safe during this process, families will need to stay in their vehicle and staff will place bags in the trunk--please make sure you have room in your trunk. Under no circumstance will families or students be allowed in the building. Families should drive up to the main door by the office in the circle driveway off of 56th Street. Please be aware that other families will be picking up belongings at the same time and you should expect some wait time as vehicles move through the line during this process.

When staff approach your vehicle, please roll down your window a small amount to give them your student’s name and open your trunk or back door (for vans) from your vehicle. Staff will stay a safe distance in respect of social distancing. 

If you are unable to come to the school to get your student’s belongings for any reason, please let us know by  emailing to Lisa.Benson@mpls.k12.mn.us so we can work with you to get any items you may need or to let us know you’d like us to hold them at the school until we return to in-school learning. Please include the following information when you contact us: 

  • Your student’s first and last name.

  • Your current home address.

  • The best phone number to reach you.

  • NOTE: If you leave this information on our phone, please speak slowly and clearly.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Lisa.Benson@mpls.k12.mn.us.
