Re-engage in school

There are thousands of children in our School District who have not enrolled for the 2021/22 school year and have not returned to our classrooms.

We are trying to locate them to help them re-engage in school so they can join their friends and teachers and continue their education.

On Saturday. September 25 and Sunday, September 26, hundreds of Broward Teachers Union representatives, Broward County School Board members, Broward County Public Schools Interim Superintendent Dr. Vickie Cartwright and District staff are walking door-to-door to help find and re-engage these students.

You’ll recognize them in your neighborhood by their blue “Ready for You!” T-shirts.

Please help us find these children. If you know or are aware of a student who is not attending school or not attending school regularly, call our school office at 754-323-6650 or email readyforyou@browardschools.com.

You’ll be helping a child get the quality education needed to reach their highest potential. Thank you.

Students are being encouraged to destroy school property, record the activity, and post video footage on TikTok.

Parents, we are asking you to please have a conversation with your children to discourage them from engaging in any acts of violence and destruction of school property.

Students who participate in acts of this nature will be subject to strict disciplinary consequences and potential criminal charges.

As always, the safety and security of our students and staff members remain our highest priorities.

We thank you for assisting us to communicate this important message to your child.

Dismissal - 8/22/21

Thank you very much to all car rider parents that followed the procedures. 
We had about 95% of our parents follow the procedures and it made all the difference. 
The car line was clear by 4:17 pm on Friday! 
 
Your cooperation with following the procedures made all the difference!  Thank you. 
Let's do it again every day this week and for the rest of the year. 
With 100% of all parents following the procedures, we will have a clear car line by 3:59 pm!  Here are a few reminders to keep everyone safe:
 
Davie Police has asked that you only enter from Davie Rd onto 39th street. 
You will receive a citation from Davie Police if you make a left turn into our parking lot during dismissal.  Again, you can only make a right turn into our parking lot at dismissal.
 
Please email your child's teacher and ask for a car tag to hang on your rearview mirror.  Write the child's name, teacher's name, and grade level in large, dark letters. 
If you need more car tags for multiple people in your family, email your teacher.
 
All car rider parents must stay in the car. 
Students will not be dismissed to parents that walk up.
 
Walkers are students that live less than 2 miles from the school. 
If you wish to designate your child as a walker, you must notify your child's teacher in writing via email or a note by 9 am.
 
Changes to dismissal must be sent in writing via a written note or an email by 9 am to your child's teacher.
 
Children are not dismissed for early release after 3 pm.
 
We look forward to 100% cooperation of arrival and dismissal procedures to ensure everyone's safety. 
Your cooperation made all the difference on Friday!  Let's work to get to 100% !! 
 
 
Meet & Greet/Open House:

Welcome back to the 21/22 school year. We are looking forward to having all of our students back on campus. Tuesday, August 17th is Meet and Greet and Open House.

You will receive a call from your child's assigned teacher by August 16th. 4th and 5th Grade is from 9:15-10:30, 2nd and 3rd Grade is from 10:45-12:00, and Kindergarten and 1st Grade is from 12:15-1:30. During this time students will be able to meet their teacher and drop off school supplies.

Parents will also attend the open house presentation from their child's classroom teacher. Due to space and safety precautions, only one parent or guardian will be able to attend with their child. We also ask that you adhere to the time schedule to limit movement on campus.

Prior to Meet and Greet, please visit our school website to access and complete the Back to School online forms. Once you have completed the forms, print the confirmation page and bring it with you to Open House. It is very important that we have this important information prior to the first day of school.
