April 12 Back to School Information

April 2, 2021

Dear Talley Street Community,

I hope everyone had a great week! We are looking forward to the return of more students to the school building on April 12th. Talley Street faculty and staff will be ready to greet the students. Below you will find some helpful information. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at bheaton@csdecatur.net. As you know, next week is spring break. I will not be checking email as frequently. But, I will do my best to get back with you. Enjoy your spring break!


Transportation Information

For arrival and dismissal, car riders will enter Talley Street from S. Columbia Drive. Once you turn onto Talley Street, you will make a right hand turn into the parking lot. Please turn on your turn signal at the Talley Street entrance. Once you have made the right hand turn into the school parking lot, you will follow the traffic pattern. Talley Street faculty and staff will be outside to greet the students. After dropping off your child, you will exit the school parking lot by making a right hand turn back on to Talley Street heading towards Sams Street. You will take a left hand turn on Sams Street which will dead end into E. College Ave. No left hand turns are allowed entering or exiting the school parking lot. School begins at 7:45. By 7:45, students should be in their class and ready to begin instruction. Students arriving after 7:45 will be considered tardy. Dismissal begins at 11:15. Below are some short videos that may help our 3rd grade students who have not had the opportunity to visit the school.
