Over the past few weeks our teachers and support staff have packed up student personal belongings that were left behind in desks and lockers when our campus closed the afternoon of Tuesday, March 17.   On Tuesday, May 26 & Wednesday, May 27, the Festus R-VI School District will open our campus for drive-up/ pick-up of student personal belongings for students in Kindergarten - 11th grade.   Collection of items that students need to return can also be made at that time.    (Seniors who are part of the Class of 2020 will collect/return their items on Monday, May 18.  A separate email with specifics has been sent to the entire Class of 2020).
Chromebooks and chargers do NOT need to be returned unless the student will NOT be returning to the school district for the 2020-21 school year.
Items that DO need to be returned include:  
  • Textbooks
  • English Language Arts Novels
  • Library Books
  • Choir Uniforms, Folders, Solo/Ensemble books and other school issued music
  • Band Uniforms, Music Folders, School Owned Instruments
  • Graphing Calculators (for certain math classes)
  • Area Technical School supplies
Items that students may pick up include:
  • Locker Items
  • Band Instruments
  • Industrial Art Projects
  • Art Projects
If medication is to be picked up, a parent MUST be present.  Any medication not picked-up will be disposed of properly.  If a parent cannot make it to a scheduled pick-up time, you can contact Lindsey Roth, Coordinator of Staff and Student Wellness at rothlindsey@festusedu.com.
The pick-up and drop-off will be conducted on Tuesday, May 26 and Wednesday, May 27.   Please see the table below for times.  Specific procedures for each school can be found below the table and will also be sent in an email from your child’s principal. 
Families with students in multiple buildings can pick one time to make their way from building to building.

High School
Vehicles will enter the High School parking lot by the gym and will be directed where to go from there.  Families will be able to stay in their vehicles throughout the process in order to maintain social distancing guidelines.  It would greatly be appreciated if families would write the student’s first name, last name, and grade level on a piece of paper and place it in the windshield when they come up to school.  This will help keep the process moving quickly.  If families have children in other buildings, we will be flexible if they need to come up to the high school during a different grade level drop off time.
