Changes to Early Dismissal Procedures

Unfortunately, we have had recent issues with visitors attempting to wander throughout the building instead of waiting in the main office/front lobby for their child to come down for early dismissal.

Due to the safety concerns that this presents, families picking students up for early dismissal will wait on the porch of the building to have their child brought out to them.

Join Us in Congratulating Our 2023-2024 Teacher of the Year- Ms. Javana Rhodes!!

Ms. Rhodes is a 4th grade teacher here at New Castle. While this is her 2nd year with us, she has experience teaching both upper and lower elementary here in Delaware as well as in New Jersey. She works hard each day to meet her students where they are and to provide support for and learn from her colleagues. We are definitely lucky to have her as a member of our staff!

General Updates

  • We are sad to announce that Ms. Corsi is no longer working with us here at New Castle. We realize this presents a language challenge for many of our Spanish speaking families. Please be patient with us and know that we will continue to do our best to try to meet your needs.

  • As the weather begins to warm up, please remember that students should be dressing appropriately for school and the temperature each day. Students should always be wearing clothing that does not expose their midriff, close toed shoes, and should consider carrying a light jacket.

  • There is no football at recess due to the excessive amount of hands-on incidents that often occur while football is being played at recess. If you see your child attempting to bring a football to school, please remind them of this rule.

Breakfast and Lunch are provided FREE OF CHARGE for all students!

All students will have access to a free breakfast and lunch every day!

Be mindful that even if your child brings breakfast and/or lunch with them, we CANNOT DENY students access to the meals that we have in school, so if you do not want them to eat a school breakfast/lunch or have concerns about the possibility of them eating a double lunch (the one that bring from home and what we offer in school) and ending up with a tummy ache, please have that conversation with your scholar. :-)
