Everything You Need to Know for the coming week.

July 16, 2023

a note from the principal

It was great seeing so many families at our Open House event on Thursday evening. It was such an awesome feeling to have our building bustling with activity again!

We are so excited for the first day of school!

Arrival Times

Students may arrive as early at 7:15 AM and the late bell rings at 7:45 AM. Please do not drop students off prior to 7:15 AM as there is no one to supervise them.


School dismisses at 2:15 PM. Please review the maps below for carline procedures.

Transportation Information

You may view your child’s bus stop information using the Edulog App. Here are directions. You may also check the status at the Parent Portal. You will need your child's ID number and you can get that from their classroom teacher or front office. If you have any concerns or questions about transportation throughout the year, Farrah Boggan, farrah_boggan@dpsnc.net, or Leah Rubow, leah_rubow@dpsnc.net will be your points of contact. Please note that if you need transportation changes, it takes up to a week for those to take effect.

Bloomz Messaging

We are planning on utilizing Bloomz again this year but there is a data use agreement the company has to sign with state before we are able to renew our licsense with them. I spoke to the Bloomz founder and he said they will have it singed by the end of the week so we hope to be up and running soon. Please stay tuned for more information.
