Dudley EL News!

Welcome Back!

Hello DES Families!

I am so happy to have staff and students returning to the building shortly! I get lonely here over the summer without my little friends around to keep me company. We have been working all summer to clean and make improvements to the school for our students' return. I am excited to hear what our returning students will have to say when they come back on the 31st.


I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and that our students are getting their brains ready to learn again! I am personally looking forward to a little bit of cooler weather, but I hope the nice sunny days stick around.

Will you be driving your child to school and/or picking them up each day?

Here at DES, we have a very simple pick up and drop off routine.

1. Head into the first driveway on your right

2. Drive up and around the back of the school

3. When traffic is heavy (usually in the afternoon) we form 2 waiting lines in the back lot

4. Watch for staff members directing traffic

5. Pull into the narrow driveway when instructed to do so

6. Drop off or pick up your child

7. Follow the narrow driveway out and to the street (be careful to watch for busses leaving in the morning)
