Thank You!

Dear Whitesides Families,

It was a great first day of school! It was so fun to see so many happy, smiling faces, not to mention our wolverine mascot showing up. Thanks, also, to those who came to our Back-to-School Night last Thursday. We appreciate your support!


Parents - Please log into your guardian myDSD account and sign all available digital documents. Your child also has documents they will need to read and digitally sign. Additional documents were just added tonight, so please check your myDSD account and make sure all documents have been signed for both yourself and your student(s).

Dropping Students Off At School

If you drop your student(s) off at school, please follow our procedures:
  • Pull all the way through the drop-off zone to the point where students would enter the playground area. Do not stop directly in front of the school, as this causes traffic congestion.
  • Do not park your car anywhere in the drop-off zone. If you want to walk your student to the door or their class line, you will need to park your car in the parking lot.

For the safety of everyone, please follow these procedures. Thank you.
