Dear Families,

Dear Hallett Families,
It has been wonderful having all of our students in school this week. I am excited about all this year will bring. While we remain grateful for the opportunity to gather together in-person, we continue to mandate mask-wearing inside, frequent hand-washing, and disinfecting our learning spaces (desks/tables and chairs) , to support keeping our students healthy and safe. 

In lieu of back-to-school night, teachers are sending electronic newsletters to share classroom expectations, supplies needed, units of study and learning goals, and pictures of our classrooms. Please reach out to your child(ren)’s teacher if you have questions or concerns about what’s happening in class. You may email your child(ren)’s teacher : teacher’s first name_teacher’s last name@dpsk12.org .

Thank you for a joyous start to the school year, we can’t wait to see you on Monday! Have a great weekend. 

With love,
Dominique Jefferson
