Dear Dubois families,
I can't believe another year is coming to a close. It seems like we just started this journey a few short months ago (though I must admit that some days are longer than others). I appreciate your support and willingness to work with us in an effort to make this school year successful for all our families. Some of you have expressed interest about who your child's teacher will be next year. I need to have your request in writing to me prior to the last day of school (June 1st). Please include your child's name, grade, requested teacher and why you think your child's needs match this particular teacher. I cannot guarantee your request due to class size and special education needs, but I will make every effort to accommodate it.
The last day of this school year is Tuesday, June 1st at which time school will be dismissed at 10:00. Registration for next school year will be Monday, August 9th from 11:00 - 6:00. Please be sure to bring proof of residency as well as a birth certificate if the child is NEW to Springfield Public Schools. School will begin on Monday, August 23rd with dismissal being at 2:00 all that week. We hope to have class lists posted the weekend immediately prior to the start of school.
We will have some changes in personnel next year year as many of our teachers have been RIF'd or displaced into other positions. Please join me in welcoming them to Dubois as well as wishing those that are leaving us well.
Thank you for all you do!
