Today, Deerfield students completed our second semester ALICE drill. We also had conversations with each grade level about how to respond to safety emergencies in the cafeteria. Students did a great job of following procedures and listening to District Resource Officer Anderson. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact our office.
Randolph Central Schools are on a two hour delay today, Thursday, May 2, due to fog.
This is a CORRECTION to information that was posted yesterday in regard to kindergarten entrance dates. According to updated information we received today, we want to make this clarification. 1. To enroll in kindergarten a student still must be at least 5 years old on August 1 of the year of enrollment. 2. Indiana schools may adopt a procedure that allows parents of a student who turns 5 after August 1 to appeal to the schools for enrollment in kindergarten. We apologize for the confusion. If your child will be 5 between August 1 and September 1, and you think he or she is ready for kindergarten, contact our office for further details.
Attention Parents of Incoming Kindergarten Students: The statewide date for kindergarten entrance has changed. Any child who turns 5 by September 1, 2019, can enroll in Kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year at Deerfield Elementary School. Please visit our office or contact us by phone at 765-595-0144 extension 1300 for information about how to register your child for kindergarten.
We are in need of volunteers (moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, or big brothers or sisters) to make field day a success! The kids LOVE Field Day. However, there are a lot of stations and a lot of groups that rotate through the stations. Therefore, we need a lot of volunteers. Volunteers will need to plan to arrive around 9:30 a.m. on May 17. Call the office at 765-595-0144, option 3 if you can help.
