Returning DRE families please update your contact information:
During the week of July 10th, you should have received a letter in the mail with instructions on how to fill out your back to school forms and update your information using our new online portal. Please note: Forms must be completed online prior to the first day of school on August 16.
If you have not already done so, please fill out the required forms and update your information, please visit this link: http://www.dublinschools.net/backtoschool.aspx
Teacher Assignments: Please look for an email on August 11th with your child’s classroom placement information.
School Hours: The first day of school is Wednesday, August 16th. Students can enter the building at 9 a.m. and the tardy bell rings at 9:10. AM Kindergarten dismisses at 11:50 and PM Kindergarten begins at 1:00. Students are dismissed from school at 3:40 pm.
Just a reminder to Kindergarten parents: the first two days of school are “phase-in days,” so your child will only attend one of the first two days. Please check your placement letter to verify your child’s assigned date.
School Supplies: http://www.dublinschools.net/Downloads/2017-18 Supply List.pdf
Student drop off and pick up procedures: If you need to walk your child into school, please park in the side parking lot and escort your child into school. Students drop off is located in the back playground loop before and after school. To help keep the line moving, we ask that the front car please pull all the way up to the first yellow line. This allows three cars to load/unload at the same time. For safety reasons, we are asking that students please exit from the passenger side of the car only so they are not crossing the line of traffic. If you need to assist your child out of the car or stop your vehicle and get out of the car, we ask that you please pull off into the side playground area to allow other cars to pass.. Cell phone usage is not permitted in the drop off line. With everyone’s cooperation we can keep the line move quickly and safely!
Volunteers: If you are interested in volunteering at DRE, please be sure to complete a background check at the following link:
Parent Resources: Please see our district parent resource page for lunch menus, EZ pay lunch account information, student handbooks, bus route information and much more! Bus route information will be posted the second week of August. A representative from the transportation department will also be here during our walk through on August 15th to answer any questions you may have.
Attendance: Please remember to call the school office at 764-5932 (option 2) by 9:30 am if your child is going to be absent or tardy.
