Principal Message Week of January 29, 2023


Good afternoon Davis Drive Elementary families. In order to streamline the process for parents notifying the school when students are absent , we have created one form to submit for your child. There is no need to send a message to your child’s teacher in talking points to notify them of an absence. Please complete this FORM. Thank you for your adjustment to a new process for DDE. 

Red Ribbon Week Reminders:


Red Ribbon Week starts on Monday! we are looking forward to an exciting week! 


Here is a link to the flyer:

Food is counted each morning from 7:15-7:45, but we have boxes in the foyer for each class, so parents can also drop food off later in the day to be counted the next morning. 


Monday's theme is "Our school rocks! We are drug-free! Wear school colors, DDE t-shirts, or dolphin clothes!

Carpool Reminders

To ensure all students and staff remain safe during arrival and dismissal times, please remember the following established guidelines:

  • All parents must remain in their cars in the dropoff areas, for their own safety as well as for efficiency

  • Plan to arrive early enough in the morning to prevent your child from being tardy and missing important instruction at the start of the day.  All students arriving at 7:44 will be given a tardy slip as arriving at that time will prevent them from being in their classroom when the bell rings at 7:45. (Tardies are defined as not being in the classroom at 7:45)

  • Maps and additional details are on the Carpool Information sheet linked in the DDES website. 


Car Tag 

  • Always remember to carry your car tag with you! 


International Fair - March 10th 

On March 10th from 5:00-7:00pm Davis Drive Elementary School will hold an International Fair. Please complete this form if you would like to share a piece of your cultural heritage with our school community. 


We are looking for dancers, native dress and other special artifacts of your family's cultural background. Families will join together to plan a display table for a country.
