I hope you have enjoyed the summer weather and are getting ready to come back to school!  


We sent all families a letter in the mail with log in and password information to register children through the Power School Parent Portal, which leads you to Infosnap.  It is important for ALL families to do this, so that we have the most updated information about your child, especially emergency contact information. 


We have been working hard in preparation for the return of our children.  Our custodians and technology staff have been very busy!  They have renovated some classrooms (K, 2nd, and 5th grades).  They have installed a new flag pole, new outdoor learning equipment and back up generator for the preK, new wireless clocks throughout the building, a new server, and a battery back up system to keep our internet and phone system up and running during a power failure.  We so appreciate all their hard work!


Teachers have been in during their vacation setting up classrooms. Office staff have been enrolling and registering families new to Derby and preparing all your back to school materials.  We have been hiring new staff, and I am pleased to say we have filled almost every position.  We do need a bus driver if you know of anyone who may be interested.  


Check out the September newsletter with all the important dates for the start of the school year.  You can also access our website for updated bus information, a soon to be updated lunch menu, and an up-to-date calendar with all our school events. 


More information about Picture Day, student insurance, free lunch, etc. will be sent home with your child in a folder the first day of school.


We look forward to seeing you soon.
