March/April Newsletter

Hello CDES families! Happy Spring!

*Friday March 27th is an early dismissal. We will begin dismissing car riders at 12:10. We will also be registering Pre-k and K students for next year from 1pm-4pm.

*Thursday April 2nd is a snow make up day and an early dismissal day for students. School will be closed April 3rd and 6th for Spring Break.

If we receive the three day waiver from the State Department of Education our last student day will be June 12th. I will send out information as soon as we know if this is approved. 

Our CDES website has been updated so please visit the site for up-to-date information and dates. 

Please call me or come in for any questions or concerns!
