Textbook Distribution Dates

Dear Crusader Parents,

In a continued effort to minimize possible exposure to COVID-19 and remain compliant with public health, we will be conducting a drive thru distribution process for families to pick up textbooks.  When you arrive at the front of the school, we are asking that you remain in your car and open the trunk or rear hatch.  Textbooks will be placed in your car by our staff.  You will have the opportunity to pick up books on the following dates: 

7th graders ONLY

  • Last name A-B
    • Thursday, August 6 from 12pm-3pm
  • Last name C-G
    • Friday, August 7 from 12pm-3pm
  • Last name H-O
    • Monday, August 10 from 12pm-3pm
  • Last name P-Z

*DO NOT plan on picking up your student’s books prior to your scheduled day.  Your books will not be ready for pick up and you will be turned away.  You may pick up your books any day after your scheduled day.

Textbooks alone are bad for us. Here's Why | by Ryan Chadha ...

Drive Up Directions:

Enter the parking lot from Ridgeback Road and proceed down the driveway until you get to the front of the school.  Please post a sign on your windshield where it will be visible by staff with your students last name, first name, and student ID number.  Stay in your car and wait for a staff member to assist you.  Our staff will grab your assigned books, which will already be checked out to you, and place them in the trunk of your car.  Please adhere to social distancing guidelines.  Pedestrian traffic can walk to the distribution table at the front of the school from either end of the driveway as long as you are wearing a face covering.

**Face Covering: 

If you have a mask or “do-it-yourself” face covering (scarf, bandana), please wear it as you pull up to the front of  the school and when you are being assisted by a staff member. 


*Please be patient with the process and be courteous to our staff.  Thank you!
