Principal Message Week of January 23, 2022

Good afternoon Davis Drive Elementary families,


I hope everyone enjoyed the snow and extra time off from school. If you use Twitter, please share your snow pics and tag @ddedolphins. We have enjoyed the fun pics we have seen so far. Even our teachers had fun in the snow! Thank you for your patience as we deal with daily bus changes. As soon as I hear of an afternoon change I will send out a text via messenger. In the mornings, please look at: to see if there are any bus cancellations. Also, sign up for Here Comes the Bus app: 

For any opening delays/closings they will be posted on the WCPSS main page. Please check there before calling school. They are posted there as soon as the District makes the decision. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
