Dealey Dragon Update
August 7, 2021
Message from the Principal
Dear excellent Dealey Families
Thank you to all that participated in PTA's New Family Playdate and Garden Work Day. It was fantastic to see all of you and your children.
This week we will have Meet the Teacher on August 12 from 5-7. Please note the Zoom information below if you do not wish to attend the sessions in the auditorium. We will share any updates we have regarding the district's Covid guidelines, and our school nurse will be available to answer questions.
One more week until the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, and we are so excited!
Dragons breathe fire!
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Brown!
Updates and Information
Dealey PTA is essential to our school community. Without PTA's funding, volunteering and community building, we simply would not be Dealey. Please follow this link to join. https://tools.ptoffice.com/
COVID update from Dallas ISD
Dallas ISD published this information regarding Covid guidelines. We will continue to communicate updates as we have them. If families have further questions, Nurse Dunlap will be available to answer questions at Meet the Teacher.
At Dealey, we strongly encourage all families to do as much as they can to keep our community safe. We did an incredible job last year with health and safety protocols. I am confident that, working together, we will continue to stay safe and healthy.
