Welcome to Mandeville Elementary PTA!
Dear Mandeville Elementary Families,
We would like to welcome you to another amazing year at Mandeville Elementary for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Our entire school community has been working to prepare our school campus for the start of the school year. We are committed to creating an environment where our students feel safe, happy, and are learning at high levels. Below you will find information that will help you understand what each day will look like for our students here at MES.
We will arrive safely to school in the morning.
Arrival by Car – Students that arrive by car will be unloaded by a school employee. Carline in the morning will follow our regular carline route for ALL students. Upon exiting the vehicle, the students will sanitize their hands and proceed to class while remaining socially distanced in the hallways. At their classroom door, students will complete the temperature check and health screening. Students will be offered breakfast inside the classroom.
Arrival by Bus – Students that arrive by bus will be unloaded by a school employee. Upon exiting the vehicle, the students will sanitize their hands and proceed to class while remaining socially distanced in the hallways. At their classroom door, students will complete the temperature check and health screening. Students will be offered breakfast inside the classroom.
We will learn and grow in our classrooms.
Students will learn and grow with their teacher in the classroom through high-quality classroom instruction. Students will remain with their class for all instruction. Art, music, library, and PE teachers will push into the classrooms for enrichment instruction. Breaks will be built into instruction to allow movement for students. All lunches will be delivered to the classrooms for students to enjoy a supervised lunchtime with their classmates. We will play at recess. Students will have two designated 20 minute outdoor recess periods to enjoy with their classmates during the day. During this time, students will be allowed free time with their classmates.
We will follow proper safety protocols. Throughout the school day, students will sanitize their hands. In addition, all school personnel will periodically clean high-touch surfaces and common areas.
More detailed information about specific protocols can be found in our district’s planning guide at http://stpsb.org/coronavirus/2020-2021/2020-2021Plan.pdf.
We will safely depart school. Departure by Bus – Students will be dismissed from socially-distanced, supervised staging areas throughout the school. One bus will be loaded at a time. Departure by Car – Students will be dismissed from socially distanced, supervised staging areas to wait for their parents to arrive. A detailed carline procedure is available on the website for those utilizing carline for dismissal.
When we work together, our students succeed. Thank you for your support.

Afternoon Carline Procedures
In order to properly distance our students for dismissal, it is necessary for our students to utilize three separate carlines for dismissal. The carlines are separated by grade levels. If you have more than one student to pick up, please stop at each appropriate carline. We thank you in advance for your patience with this process. For the safety of our families, please adhere to the following carline procedure: • Enter the north end of Galvez Street near the service road off of East Causeway Approach. • Continue south on Galvez to Pecan Street. • Turn right on Pecan Street. • Starting at 3:45 PM, cars can turn right on Maple Street. • We will continue to require the MES carline sign with your child’s name printed largely.
