All materials will be distributed from our main entrance at Compass. We are asking families to park along the right side of the circle drive, where they will be greeted by staff. Due to safety, all families will remain in their vehicles while staff members will work to quickly gather materials. When you arrive, a staff member will greet you at the curb. Please hand a piece of paper with your child’s name, grade, and homeroom teacher to the staff member present. This will help that staff member locate the materials quickly.
