I want to thank you and your child for a great first day of school. Considering all the construction and some minor technological glitches, the first day went really well! I want to point three things: • If you choose to bring your child to school, please enter our campus from S. High School Road on the EAST side of the Decatur Township School for Excellence. You’ll easily be able to drop off your child and follow the loop back to S. High School Road. Car riders may be dropped off beginning at 7 a.m. • School starts at 7:45. It is really important that your child arrive as close to 7:30 as possible so that he/she has plenty of time to get breakfast, go to his/her locker, and get to first period class. •We provide breakfast each morning, so please encourage your child to go through the line in his/her SLC to get some food! Once again, if there is anything that we can do to be of further service, please let us know! Have a great evening! Mr. Barrentine
Tomorrow, Tuesday, July 28, is the first day of school for students in Decatur Township. At Decatur Middle School, our school day is from 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. If you are bringing your child to school, please enter the school on the east side of the Decatur Township School for Excellence and follow the parking lot back to the middle school. You will be able to drop off your child along the new sidewalk and follow the loop of the parking lot back to High School Road. Doors will open at 7 a.m. for car riders. Car riders will enter Door 13 East and report to the cafeteria. Students are released from the cafeteria/buses at 7:30. After going to their lockers, students are welcome to get breakfast (provided in their SLC hallway). After this, students should report to their STAR class (which will be located in your SLC hallway). Your child’s STAR class is listed on his/her schedule. If your child has misplaced his/her schedule, he/she may pick up a new one in the cafeteria. We are looking forward to starting the 2015-16 school year!!
