A Letter from Principal Dwyer


Dear DuJardin School Community,


A few reminders:

On Wednesday, May 19th, 1st-5th grade will have a NOON DISMISSAL. For remote families, material pick up begins at 2:00 and goes until 6:00. Stay tuned for an additional material pick up/material drop off date towards the end of the year.



Sincerely,

Mark Dwyer

Certify your child(ren) Before they arrive to school

Please certify your child(ren) each day they are physically coming into the building. If they are not certified, they will remain in the school office until the certification is complete. Any child not certified will not be allowed in the classroom.

It's Okay to ask for help


Hi DuJardin parents,

With the continued stress that COVID has brought upon us, please remember that if you are struggling emotionally, you are not alone. Attached are some mental health resources for you and you family. Please reach out to me if you need any assistance. ctreanor@sd13.org



Mental Health Resources for Yourself and Your Friends

Parent / Guardian Referral

I know that this is a very stressful time for many of our students and families. I want you to know that I am here to provide social and emotional support for your child. Below is an explanation of why and how a referral for social work services can be made for your child.


Please click here for more information.

New Student Enrollment Now Open!

If you have an NEW student entering Kindergarten through Fifth Grade at DuJardin, you may enroll him/her now! A new student is someone who never attended a District 13 school. Click on this flyer for information on enrolling your child(ren).


Children who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021, are eligible for kindergarten during the 2021-2022 school year.

Student Lunch Deliveries/Drop off

Please read this letter from our Superintendent, Dr. Jon Bartelt regarding the student lunches being delivered to school.


This includes lunches from home. Please send your student to school with his/her lunch.

It is not safe to walk between cars and in front of oncoming traffic

For the safety of our parents and students, we ask that you do not park your car and walk your child through the parking lot to the door. It is not safe. There are two lanes of traffic; one that stops to drop/pick up students and the other a passing lane. It is hard to see parents and students walking between cars when someone is driving in the passing lane. We ask that you stay in your car and use the drop off line. And as always pull all the way up to the DuJardin sign on Euclid.


When you are in the drop off/ pick up lane, please remain in your car for a safer and quicker drop off/pick up.
