Curbside Drop-Off/Pick-up Protocols

AVA will be utilizing a curbside procedure in order for parents/students to drop-off required items and to retrieve items from the classroom/school.  Parents are encouraged to bring their kids with them during your assigned time so that they can see their teacher(s) and the teachers can see their students. It has been far too long without having our daily, in-person interactions with our students.  All technology items will be returned at station 1 and all other items will be collected at the teacher stations.

Station 1 – Technology Items Return (will be set up in the parking lot near the pickle ball courts)
Please enter the AVA property as you normally do. The first station will be set up to receive computer devices and chargers. Technology Check In Form needs to be filled out for all students checking in AVA computers before their scheduled day.

Station 2 (there will be two stations for pick-up – one will be in the parking lot close to the music building/path to the field and the other in the front parking lot)
After dropping off technology items, please proceed to the proper station according to this schedule:


Teachers have prepared bags containing various student items which have been labeled and will be handed to you during the curbside pick-up. In order to adhere to social distancing all teachers have an assigned time for this process. Unfortunately, we cannot have students getting out of the cars as we need to eliminate any physical contact.

Things to return
Library books
Classroom items that were loaned out
Miscellaneous AVA Property you may have

Items that may be in the bag/handed back
Student artwork
Musical Instruments
Locker contents
Personal items left in classroom

  • Please be patient during this process and be careful when pulling away from a station in order to exit.
  • AVA staff will wear masks and gloves during this process. We will also have disinfection wipes available at each station.
  • Parents and students will not be allowed into the school.
  • We realize that some items may be missed and found during cleaning. We will hold those items and work with families to return them.
