Del Norte Elementary School

Principal's Newsletter - Thursday, August 15, 2019


We are so excited to see everyone and get our year of learning started! We do have two days of school this week, Thursday, August 15th and Friday, August 16th. Many people are wondering why we are starting early. This is a great question! We are planning to move into our new building in December 2019. This will require teachers and staff to pack up and move in the middle of a school year. Students will have an extra week off in December. We needed to make up those school days so we started our year a couple of days early.

School Day

Doors open at 7:40 am.

Breakfast begins at 7:40 am.

School begins at 8:00 am.

School ends at 4:00 pm.

Drop Off & Pick-Up

Our goal is to keep all students safe during drop-off and pick-up times. We need your help to ensure this occurs. We will have two areas, the car pick-up line and the walker line.

No parking is allowed in the loading zone. All students being picked up in vehicles need to be picked up in the loading zone. Please place your student name card in the passenger side of the front window. We do not want students to walk across the traffic to get into a vehicle. Please pull all the way up to the front of the loading zone so as many cars can fit in the loading zone as possible. Please do not make a U-turn so we can keep the congestion down and ensure all students are safe.

If you are walking, please wait by the walking area at the southwest corner of the building. Please bring your student name cards so teachers know which student belongs to you.

We appreciate your help with this process. There is nothing more important to us than the safety of your child. Please let Mrs. Duda know if you have any questions.
