Parents are required to remain outside during drop-off and pick-up of students.  Students will enter one at a time and wait 6 feet apart outside of the building.
No loitering or congregating will be allowed in any lobby areas.
After reopening, EPISD staff may set appointments between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to avoid increased lobby, hallway, and elevator traffic during student arrival and departure times.  Visitors must follow the appropriate EPISD guidelines such as wearing a mask, maintaining social distancing, etc.  If a visitor has an appointment, the front desk staff will direct the visitor to the corresponding teacher or campus staff after confirmation of the visitor's appointment.  The visitor may only visit that area where they have the appointment and only after they have been screened.  If visitors fail the screening process, they will not be allowed into the building.
