Greeting Distinctive College Prep Families!
This is Mrs. Hibbler, your proud principal, with your weekly DCP-Redford News. Please take note of the following announcements:
We are excited to welcome you on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, which marks our first day of school. School begins at 7:45 and ends at 1:00 with an early dismissal and breakfast will be available.
Teachers will greet their students in the gym, and the entrance to the gym will be clearly designated. Teachers and staff will have class lists ready at their class table inside the gym, and we encourage you as parents to park in the lot, confirm your pick up person/s, and come meet your child’s new teacher!
This will be an exciting and wonderful day!
Early Dismissal Updates:
On both Tuesday, September 4th and Wednesday, September 5th, we will dismiss early at 1:00. Please make arrangements for these early dismissals.
If your child qualifies for free and reduced lunch, or if you anticipate qualifying for free and reduced lunch, please ensure that your lunch form has been completed. Until all of the applications have been received and processed, we’ll work together to make sure our students have a good, healthy lunch options right from the start. If you are unsure about your status, feel free to send your child with a brown-bag lunch for the first week of school. Please note the cost of breakfast is $1.85 and the cost for lunch is $3.45 for those who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Bus routes- Because we continue to receive students every day, bus routes are still being finalized. As soon as we have our final bus routes, we will contact you with your child’s routing information, so please be sure to be available via phone and regularly check your email. We’ll also be sure to post information on our website and Facebook page.
Walkers- If your child walks home from school, please be certain to send a note with your child on Tuesday, so we know it’s ok to allow them to walk from DCP.
Before/After School Care Updates:
We are pleased to share that we will have before and after school “latch key” programming for our students on a first come/first serve basis. In order to participate in this opportunity, students must be registered, and registration materials can be completed and submitted to our main office. Our “latch key” programming will start on Monday, September 10th.
We still have a few seats available for new students. Please help us share the word about DCP by spreading the work with your friends and family!
We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, September 4th.
Have an Excellent Weekend!
