Dear Families,

Greetings from Dallas Elementary. I am very excited to be serving you and your children as the Principal of Dallas Elementary. I also hope that everyone enjoyed a safe summer and you had the opportunity to spend some time with friends and family and laughed often.

Some information for next week:

The school will open its doors to students at 10:30 on Tuesday. This first day is for students in grades 1 to 7 only, as students coming into Kindergarten have an individualized gradual entry plan. On Tuesday, students will return to their classroom teacher from last year. All students new to our building will meet in the library where we will have teachers ready to tour kids around our school. Students will be dismissed at 12 on Tuesday, so please be sure to make appropriate arrangements. We have had a healthy influx of new students and families into our school community. This, coupled with the unknown of who might have moved away, always presents a challenge for schools at the start of the year. This year is no exception and we will ask for your patience as we will most likely take the first week before classroom placements are finalized.

For our students taking the bus, bus pick up will occur at regular stops. On Tuesday, the busses will pick up two hours later than regular pick up time in the morning and run two hours earlier in the afternoon. Busses will run at their regular times starting on Wednesday.

Have a wonderful last long weekend of Summer and see you Tuesday!

Mr. Reilly
