2020-21 Arrival and Dismissal Procedures



Directions for Start of the Day Arrival

Our students' safety is our number one priority at Galion Intermediate School. In order to ensure this, we are reminding everyone of our morning drop off/arrival procedures. 

Upon exiting the vehicle, please have a face mask/face shield, adhere to proper social distancing & use hand sanitizer at the entry doors. 

If you have a question for the office or need to leave a teacher a note, please enter the left set of doors labeled adult entry, use hand sanitizer, have a mask/face shield on, and use the buzzer to go into the office.
