Zoom Open House Schedule, Saturday, August 8.
I understand that there are Moncure families that have elected to attend the Chatham County Schools Virtual Academy. At this time, teachers are not aware of the names of students attending Virtual Academy, so they will be contacting all parents about open house.

Further information will be provided for the parents of VIrtual Academy students at a later date.

FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATIONS
School Nutrition Services of Chatham County Schools would like to share with our community that families may qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the COVID-19 pandemic and as it subsides. The additional resources provided through the approval process for free or reduced-price meals may be of benefit for families until respective household members return to work and become reestablished after these difficult times.
This information is to provide you with avenues and steps to prepare for the weeks and months to come as the effects of the pandemic subside. If families applied in the past and were denied free or reduced-price meals, they should apply again, accounting for status changes within the household. Families may apply online at www.lunchapplication.com, or they could pick up an application at one of our open feeding sites or bus stops.
Just a reminder that the Moncure School playground is closed due to COVID-19 regulations.
WI-FI Hot Spot
Moncure School currently has a wi-fi hot spot located outside of the school in the bus parking lot. There are signs posted. Please park in the parking spots closest to the building when accessing the wi-fi. Please feel free to access this at anytime to assist in At-Home Learning.
FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH FORMS
If you are in need of a free or reduced lunch form for your children, copies are available at the front office. Your child's homeroom teacher can also send these forms home with your child.

DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURES
-During both arrival (7:30AM) and dismissal (2:55PM) times school staff are stationed at the carpool lane to monitor students and provide additional safety.
-Please use extreme caution in the traffic circle and in all parking lots.
-PLEASE ENTER MONCURE SCHOOL ROAD/TRAFFIC CIRCLE VIA OLD US 1.
-All parents need to drive and park in a single car line. Staff will escort children to/from the appropriate vehicles.
-If you need to park in the morning or the afternoon, please park in the side lot near the playground.
-Carpool students will wait for their rides under the front shelter area unless escorted by a staff member. Students will sit on the front benches and wait quietly for their rides. Carpool students may exit the building from the front doors only. Students are not allowed to walk to the street or the staff parking lot to meet parents.
-School personnel will unload and load from the right side only. This places your child close to the walkway into the school and an accident is less likely to occur.
-The carpool lane is considered a single lane road and passing is not allowed.
-Parking on the left side of the front loop is NOT permitted between the hours of 7:30-8:00 a.m. and 2:30-3:00 p.m.
-PLEASE NOTE: Parents are discouraged from parking in the lot in the afternoons and walking to the front of the school for their children. Without a barrier between the sidewalk and street, using the sidewalk is a safety issue when traffic is moving through the front loop. Traffic in the parking lot is also a concern. You are asked to drive through the car rider line to pick up your children. NO parents may park in the bus lot to pick up students.
