Dear Dalmatian Families,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at the best school in SISD. We are happy to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. We hope you have had a safe and healthy summer, making memories with your loved ones!

The faculty and staff at Dalmatian Nation is already hard at work. Our theme for this year, Strength In Numbers! There's a lot of work ahead of us to ensure we focus our efforts on closing the achievement gaps created by the pandemic. We are certain that together we will ensure our scholars continue to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.

On this issue you will find the safety updates as we await the return of in-person instruction. We can't wait to welcome you back.
