Principal's Message

Dear Dunlap Students and Families,

The 2017-2018 school year is just around the corner. The Dunlap staff and I are anxious to see you. The first day of school is August 16th. This is an early release instructional day with TK/Kindergarten being released at 12:30PM and 1st-8th being released at 1:30PM. 

We welcome these new staff members to Dunlap this year: Mrs. McFarlin (3rd), Mr. Parichan (6th), Mrs. Fox (7th), and Mr. Boyle (7th).

Students are to report to class at 7:55AM on August 16th. Students and parents are encouraged to find their classroom, friends, and look around the school. Breakfast will be served in the Bobcat Den beginning at 7:35AM. Class schedules will be available on August 14th.

At Dunlap School students are challenged to reach their full potential. We provide a variety of additional support in the classroom, extra support opportunities such as tutoring and intervention, and after school care.

Regular attendance is absolutely vital to your students’ academic progress and educational success. In addition to helping students come to school on time and prepared to engage in learning, we encourage involvement at whatever level parents and family are able. Throughout the school year there are many opportunities to volunteer in the classroom, at school events like the Book Fair, Fall Festival, Fun Run, or PTC. We hope you will find a place to work alongside the staff to serve our students.

You are always welcome to contact your student’s teacher, our Learning Director, or myself, at any time during the school year, if you have questions or concerns. We are here to work together in the best interest of your student!
