Dudley EL News!

Summer Edition 2021

Hello Parents and Welcome to the Summer Edition of the Dudley EL News!

This special edition will bring you important information about the start to our school year. I am so excited to have staff and students back in the building with me. I can't wait to see those fresh little faces, ready for a great year.


So I guess the first announcement should be that school starts for all students on SEPTEMBER 1st!

The biggest question in my inbox is, "When will supply lists be coming?" Wait no further! But please remember, school supply purchases are voluntary!

Backpacks and Supplies

We will have a limited amount of free backpacks that have some school supplies inside. Thanks to a school supply drive before COVID, we collected TONS of items for families who may need them. Look for these backpacks in classrooms and hallways while you are exploring our school during Open House. Please take one if you need one.


If you are interested in donating backpacks or extra school supplies, there will be a box in the office during Open House. You can also send any extra supplies in with your student when school begins. Thank you!

Open House

Save the Date!

We will be hosting a Dudley Elementary School Open House on Monday, August 30th from 1:30-3:30pm. Our theme this year for students is TEAMWORK! Join us as we celebrate working together and getting to know our staff and school. This day is reserved for visiting classrooms, working together on a building scavenger hunt and playing games around the building. There may even be prizes! Come and see what Dudley Elementary is all about, we can't wait to meet you!


**The parking lot at Dudley EL is rather small, especially when we have our full staff here. The Boys and Girls Club has been extremely generous in letting us use their parking lot for overflow parking. The Club is located directly in back of Dudley EL and the lot is accessible from Oxford Avenue. There will be Honor Society Students from the Middle School stationed along the walking path between Dudley EL and the Club. Please be aware, the path is through a wooded area and is not suitable for anyone who may be handicapped or unstable on their feet.

Please make sure we have the most up-to-date contact information for you and that you know your parent portal user name and password!
