Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome Back To School!
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We are looking forward to seeing each of you when you return . . . . . It’s going to be a GREAT year!
Our opening school schedule will be:
Monday August 24th, early out day, first bell at 8:45 dismiss at 1:25
Tuesday we will continue with the regular Monday through Friday schedule.
On Aug. 12th you will be able to log on to my.DSD and access your students’ class assignments. We will also post lists on the main entrance doors.
Back to school night will be held on Thursday, August 27th. Kindergarten will meet at 6:00 PM in the multipurpose room, the general PTA meeting will start at 6:30, and classroom meetings will start at 7:00. During the 7:00 hour we will have two sessions, in the classrooms, lasting fifteen minutes each with a ten minute transition.
Breakfast & Lunch Programs: Nutrition Services provides breakfast every Monday through Friday from 8:15 - 8:40 a.m. in the multi-purpose room. Lunch will cost $1.85 and breakfast $1.35. Free and Reduced lunch applications must be submitted on line through My.DSD.
1st Day of School Packet: This packet contains important information and will be brought home by your children on Aug.
24th. Read it carefully and keep it handy as a reference throughout the school year. Many of the forms you need to
complete can be found on our school web site: http://www.davis.k12.ut.us/Domain/5059
Our school handbook with policies and other important school and district information can be found on our school web site as well. Please select the resources tab and then parent school resources.
If you do not have internet access and would like a copy of the handbook or any of the required forms, please ask a member of the office staff.
Forms to complete for your child/children:
Health care plan (The school nurse will contact each family, as needed, to discuss individual needs noted on the registration card. Please see the document on our web site under parent school resources)
Acceptable use agreement (All students – online through my.DSD)
Free or reduced lunch application (Optional - online through my.DSD)
Directory release form (Optional – School web site)
Media release (Optional - School web site)
Emergency information/evacuation release (All students - School web site)
Student insurance (Optional - School web site)
We will not be selling anything, as a school fundraiser, in the coming school year. The PTA and different organizations will continue with their usual fundraising activities. I have been impressed with the generous donations from many of you that help with expenses at our school that are not covered by our normal school budget. Instead of a school fundraiser we will have a donation option available through your my.DSD account. We will send information home with more specifics about our school donation request.
Kindergarten parents will be receiving a letter, from their teachers, explaining the first week schedule.
Thank you for your support and cooperation. It is a pleasure to be the principal of such a fine school! My door is open to you, so don't hesitate to call or come in with any questions or concerns.
