Dudley Elementary

First Day of School Email and Phone Message

Good Afternoon Dudley Dragon Families!


We just finished an amazing First Day of School and our students are ready to SOAR.


Here are a few important reminders:


  • Thank You to everyone who made it to last night’s Meet the Teacher Ice Cream Social.  It was a wonderful evening and a great way to kick off the school year. A special thank you to all of the teachers and staff who scooped ice cream after a long hot day preparing their classrooms for the first day of school.
  • Monday, August 13th is a Collaboration Monday.  PM Kinders and grades 1-6 will dismiss at 2:20 PM.  
    • AM Kinders attend school from 8:10 AM to 11:15 AM
    • PM Kinders attend school from 11:15 AM to 2:20 PM
    • Grades 1-6 attend school from 8:50 AM to 2:20 PM
  • You can follow Dudley Elementary on Twitter.  You can follow @DragonsSOAR for updates.  I have challenges myself to post a tweet once each day.  It will help if I know I have followers. :-)

  • If you pick your child up after school, please remember these guidelines:
    • Parents are to wait near the grassy area bordering the office for the 3:10 dismissal bell to ring.  For student safety and efficient student movement, please stay out of the main hallway. This area gets quite congested and confusing.during dismissal.
    • The parking lot can get very crowded at dismissal time and as many of you have learned, the line moves very slowly...Safety First!
      • Most likely, you can save time by parking on the neighborhood streets or in the lot of the Something Extra Pre-School next door.  You can probably walk from your car, pick up your child, and return to your car before the line in the parking lot clears out.
      • If the line in the parking lot is too long, it is not permissable or safe to block the street traffic on Aztec Way.  Please find alternate parking as suggested above.
    • When leaving our campus, please use our sidewalks or the walkway that is clearly painted on the south-side of the parking lot.  Walking through the parking lot creates an unsafe situation for our students.
    • Thank you for helping our dismissal situation to SOAR and keeping our little dragons safe.

That’s all there is for today.
