Good Evening students and parents! This is Lauryn Duncan, Principal at Douglass Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Doors will again open for all students this week at 7:20am and they may report directly to their classroom. Students wishing to eat breakfast in our cafeteria will do so before heading to their classroom. Parents, please remember that our cafeteria stops serving breakfast at 7:45am. Our tardy bell rings at 7:50am each morning. Students arriving late to school must be signed in by a parent at our front desk. Parents please remember to use the front crosswalk in the mornings to ensure the safety of you and your child.
Just a reminder, breakfast and lunch are no longer free of charge this year. The cost of breakfast is $2.25 and the cost of lunch is $3.25. If you are interested in completing a lunch form please visit our school website at douglasselementary.org and click on the lunch form link located on the homepage. Lunch accounts can be created and updated by visiting k12paymentcenter.com.
Families, our kindergarten, PreK and functional skills classes will continue learning colors this week. Help our students have fun by asking your child to wear yellow on Monday, red on Tuesday, brown on Wednesday, gray on Thursday, and tie-dye on Friday.
Our annual school wide fundraiser will end this Wednesday, September 21st. All money must be turned in no later than Wednesday. Please remember that we cannot accept unsold candy bars.
Our Book Fair will begin Monday, September 26th and to kick off the Book Fair, students are encouraged to dress like their favorite book character on Monday, September 26th. Flyers will be sent home with students on Monday.
Parents, Rockingham County Schools will continue to require approved background checks for any chaperone or volunteer within our school that has unsupervised contact with students. All background checks are handled online, including payment, no money is sent to school. More information about background checks can be found on our district’s website under the parents & students tab.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your evening and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning.
