News for the Families of Duval Charter School at Southside

Well Under Way
The Southside Stingrays are in full swing as we head into this second week of school. I've heard nothing but positive remarks from students, teachers, and parents alike. We truly have something special here at Southside, and we thank you for being a part of it.
Yours in Education,
Duval Charter School at Southside
I highly encourage you to arrive in the parking lot by 7:45. Many parents are arriving at 10 til, and are not able to drop off their child so they are in class by 8:00. Please remember that school starts at 8:00, so students need to enter the building by 7:55. Help begin your child's day off to a good start, by arriving in the lot no later than 7:45. Thank you for your cooperation!

Introducing, the Parent Passport! This handy volunteer calendar can be posted on your fridge so that you and family members can plan out your volunteer opportunities. This can be picked up at the PTC table at any of the orientations, or at the front office.
