Parent Update for August 13, 2021

Good Afternoon Duxberry Families,

As we approach the beginning of the school year, here are a few important updates and calendar reminders.

The first day of school for Grades 1-5 is Thursday, August 26.  The school opens at 8:30am for breakfast and the school day begins at 9:00am sharp.  The end of the school day is 3:30pm, with car pick-ups beginning about 3:20pm. All children must be picked-up by 3:35pm.

Expect your child’s teacher to reach out to you by email by the evening of Monday, August 23, 2021 with important classroom information, such as your teacher and room assignments.

Parents of Kindergarten Students must sign up for an appointment to meet your classroom teacher and to complete Kindergarten testing on Thursday August 26, Friday August 27 or Monday August 30.  The first full-day of Kindergarten is Tuesday, August 31, 2021.  Sign up for an appointment at this Sign Up Genius Link.

Bus Routes are not yet posted.  Continue to check your Parent Portal for Transportation Information.  This year, transportation will ONLY bus students to and from their primary home address.  Make sure that your home address and email address on the Parent Portal is correct.  If you have any problems with the Parent Portal, call the office at 614-365-6023 for help.

School Supply suggestions can be found on the Duxberry School website.

If your family could use support for back to school clothes, please go to https://charitynewsies.org/ to access their application.  If you qualify they will provide what your child needs for back to school clothing. We do not require a school uniform.

Whew!  This is a lot of information!  We are working hard to open our 2021 school year strong, and it’s our goal to keep everyone safe, healthy and happy while at Duxberry.  We are really excited to welcome you back to Duxberry!
