School Updates

*Just a reminder, if your child is absent for an extended period of time, you can pick up his/her homework in the elementary office on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Call the office and let Alice know if your child needs their homework collected.

*Please be reminded, Early Out Wednesdays now take place weekly.

*Did your child miss Picture Day? We will have Picture Retakes on Monday, October 18th.

*Please be reminded, at this time we are limiting visitors to the building.

*As a general rule, ALL students should be working to earn 2 steps in their Reading Logs nightly.

*PT Conferences are rapidly approaching. This year we will be offering both in-person and virtual conferences to parents. We will allow families to choose the option that best suits the family's personal needs. Watch your child's backpack for PT Conference notes coming home in the coming weeks.

*As a reminder, if you pick up your child after school each day, we ask you to NOT park in the lawns of the houses around Danville Elementary. Please remind your children to use the crosswalks and follow safety guidelines when walking to meet you. In addition, if you park in the elementary parking lot, please use the appropriate entrance to the parking lot.

*Like last year, breakfasts and lunches are free for all Danville students. However, if your child wants "seconds" they will be charged as normal.

*If you are contacting your child's teacher due to an illness or absence, please include Alice McLeland (alice.mcleland@danvillecsd.org) and Emily Enger (emily.enger@danvillecsd.org) on the email. Thank you!
