Below are some upcoming events and/or reminders to help you plan accordingly for.
RETAKE ORDERS DUE DATE: Retake orders are due tomorrow: Wednesday, October 21st. (please refer to indented paragraph below for ordering instructions)
OCT 21: DUE DATE FOR RETAKE ORDER FORMS:
If you notified your child’s teacher that they needed a retake, those proofs and order forms have arrived and should be coming home before the end of the week.
When you place your order online, please notify your child’s teacher you have done so.
* Just some things to note:
~ Retake orders will arrive later than the original picture day orders.
~ Each student will receive one free classroom composite, which is why this is not listed as a ‘selection’ on the order form.

ORIGINAL PICTURE ORDERS: Original picture orders from our August 25th picture day should be arriving soon so please keep an eye out for those to be coming home.
1:30 DISMISSAL – OCT 28: Please plan accordingly for the 1:30 Dismissal for all buildings on Wednesday, October 28th.
GENERAL OFFICE EMAIL ADDRESS: DakotaValleyES@k12.sd.us Please use this address on emails you send to your elementary child’s teacher. This will help us stay on top of important communication in case the teacher is absent and keeps you from having to worry about WHO ALL to include or forward to if one of our office staff happens to be absent as well.
COOLER TEMPS: With temps dropping at night and sometimes not making it back up to a comfortable temp until later in the afternoon, please make sure children are appropriately dressed for the cooler temperatures. They do go outside before school and have an early morning recess, which can still be quite chilly for underdressed kiddos. Our unwritten rule at school is 60 degrees or higher before they are not required to wear coats or jackets. Here is the weather website we use in determining outside temps: http://www.ktiv.com/weather We follow the “FEELS LIKE” temp.
END OF 1ST TRIMESTER - REPORT CARDS: The end of our 1st Trimester is Monday, November 9. Report cards will be sent home with students the end of that week, please be watching for them.
