Dear Parents,



The school year is off to a great start! The children and teachers are settled in to their new routines, and are already hard at work. I'm sure many of you are wondering what your child's school day looks like, and we would love to show you! Please, mark your calendars for our upcoming Curriculum Nights. Our K-2nd grade students' curriculum night is on Wednesday, August 24th, and our 3rd -5th grade students' is on Thursday, August 25th. They both begin at 6:45. I look forward to seeing you all then. Meanwhile, have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.


Your Principal (and partner),

Mr. Mike DiFilippo

Back to School Reminders:

Just a few reminders as we begin the new school year:


  • All visitors must check in at the front office, show photo ID, and obtain a visitors pass. Please note: In order for the students, and new lunch monitors to have time to establish their new routines, we will begin welcoming lunch visitors on Monday, August 22nd.
  • There are no check-outs after 2:15. Also, please remember to send a note to the teacher letting them know you will be checking your child out early. This will ensure your child has his/her belongings with them when you arrive. (Remember, classrooms are locked when not in use, if you arrive when your child's class is traveling, your child cannot access their belongings.)
  • Transportation changes must be submitted in writing, no later than 12:30 PM. (We cannot accept transportation changes over the phone or via email.)
  • Bus passes are for emergencies only.
  • All students must have a transportation tag attached to their backpack. If you purchase your child a new backpack throughout the year, please remove the tag from the old backpack and send it in to school with your child. We will attach it to their new backpack for you in the office.
  • Ice Cream will be sold during lunch each Friday. The cost is $1.
  • Friday's are spirit wear days. Staff and students are encouraged to wear their Dyer/Mountain View spirit wear each Friday.
