Welcome to Our First Full Week of School for the Year!

We are so excited to have each and every one of you as a part of the Dickson family!


Please read through the important notes and information below.


  • Car riders are to be dropped off from the carpool lines beginning at 7:15 am. Please do not park your vehicle in order to walk your child to the door.


  • PreK drop-off begins at 7:45. Siblings of Pre-K students are to enter the school through their designated doors, not the Pre-K doors. Please see the Morning Dropoff Map link near the bottom of the Smore.


  • When students enter the building, they will report directly to their homeroom teacher.


  • If your child is a bus rider, please make sure they know their bus number.


  • Please send your child with a refillable water bottle daily.


  • While we have implemented some changes that we hope will make afternoon carpool run more smoothly, you can expect longer wait times on the first few days of school as students learn the process, some parents don't have their car decals yet, and we make adjustments to the process. (Last week day 2 was much better than day 1. :-) )


  • Afternoon carpool takes longer when parents come to the door to show their ID to pick up their child. Please purchase your car decals asap. You can send the money, with a note, to school with your child.




  • We understand that some parents choose to send their child to school with a cell phone. This is a personal choice. Students will not have access to their phones during instruction. Phones must be powered down and put away in a designated place (as determined by the classroom teacher) during the school day. Please be aware that students that bring cell phones to school are doing so at their own risk and the school or school employees are not responsible for your child's phone.

Parents, please be aware of the dangers of social media. It does not have the best interest of our children, and it is addictive, especially for young brains. Here are some options that you may find helpful.
