If parents/guardians are dropping off youth from a car, all cars must approach our drop off zone by driving south on Union Street (heading from 8th Street south towards 7th Street). Please pull to their right alongside our driveway. Do not drop youth off from your car and have them walk up. Do not exit the car until a Crucible staff member has checked you in!
If parents/guardians or youth themselves are arriving on foot, go to the on-foot check-in sign and wait in line six-feet away from others until we check you in.
A staff member will ask everyone in the vehicle, including the youth student, how they are feeling and if there is any information we should be made aware of prior to the youth coming on site, such as temperature change, any illness or symptoms of illness, etc. You can see our health questionnaire here.
Check in with your child before arriving to know how they are going to answer our health questionnaire, so there are no surprises. We will not admit youth exhibiting any symptoms or who have been in close contact with someone exhibiting symptoms.
Each class will have a designated, outdoor area to gather together with their faculty, distinguished by a sign. If all is clear, youth will be asked to exit the vehicle on the right passenger side. Please do not exit on the left side, where cars may be driving. Youth will immediately sanitize their hands at the appropriate station and proceed to their specific class check-in area.
Once the class has gathered, the faculty member will lead them to their next destination, whether that is the inside classroom, outside classroom, restroom, or material bag pick up
Following class, the faculty member will lead the class group to the class check in area, located outside (same spot as from the morning drop off). Youth will wait with their faculty member until ready to be picked up by a parent/guardian or released to walk off property. Students must have authorization to check themselves out and walk alone to BART, the bus stop or home.
If parents/guardians are picking up youth in a car, all cars must approach our drop off zone by driving south on Union Street (heading from 8th Street south towards 7th Street). Please pull to their right alongside our driveway.
A staff member will ask who the car is picking up and the driver’s name and relationship to the youth. All pick ups must have prior approval and be on The Crucible’s contact list for us to release a youth.
Drivers must be wearing PPE/masks when communicating with our staff members. If other children are in the car, the windows must be up, or if open, they will need to wear PPE as well. If they are under age two, they must be in a car seat in the back with the windows closed during pick up.
Once pick up contact is confirmed, a staff member will retrieve youth from their class and have them walk to the vehicle. Youth must enter a vehicle from the right passenger side. Please do not have youth enter a vehicle from the left side, as that is where cars may be driving. Prior to leaving, youth will be asked if they are experiencing any feelings of illness or exhibiting any symptoms. All notes will be recorded in the check out spreadsheet.
