For your convenience registration packets were mailed to families July 22. Please fill out the forms completely: enrollment verification, a health form for each student in home, transportation form, meal application, and health & development screening.  Please review the information sheet for your family and make changes updating addresses, phone numbers, emergency contacts, pick-up lists, etc. and bring the completed forms to registration.  Our staff will provide information about outstanding fines and fees and required immunizations. Students will be required to have current immunizations to begin classes Thursday, August 14.

They will receive their class schedules, locker numbers and combinations, parking permits, and ID cards. Any students participating in sports should have their physical completed before the first day of practice.

Middle school students will receive their class schedules and teacher assignments. Only the 7/8th grade students will be assigned a locker at registration (no cost). All 8th graders must have their TDAP immunization before school begins and any 7/8th grader participating in sports should have their physical completed before the first day of practice.

Mallory and Long Lane elementary students will receive their teacher assignments at registration. Class lists will not be published in the newspaper.

New students to the district will also participate in registration at these times.  Registration forms will be available to them at the registration.

Math for the Summer
The Dallas County R-I School District uses the highly respected "Everyday Mathematics" program, designed by the University of Chicago, at the elementary grades.  During the last three years our schools have seen great growth on end of the year testing using this program.   If you're wondering what next year will hold for your student in Everyday Math, visit the Parent Resource page at http://everydaymath.uchicago.edu/parents/ for a summary of each grades curriculum.  It even has some fun "do at home" work that you can use during the summer months to help build your child's math skills.
Classroom Remodel Progressing
Construction crews have made quick progress as they remodel the industrial tech shop into three classrooms.  The three new classrooms will eliminate three trailers at Buffalo High School. Mrs. Brownfield, Miss Schneider, Mr. Sharp, and Mrs. Wolhoy will enjoy the new classrooms, as well as the students in these classes.

Happy Trails To Our Retiring Teachers

Thank you for your service, we will miss you and we're sure you'll miss Snow Days!!!
