We are so excited to have your child in our class this year! We just wanted to give you some quick information. 

Car rider drop off begins at 7:50.  You are considered tardy after 8:25.  If you check your child out early, that is also considered tardy.  Dismissal starts at 2:50. 

Your child will need to bring a lunch or purchase one in the cafeteria.  Student lunches are 2.75 per day. 

If you write a check, please make it payable to Desoto Central Primary School.  Label all money. 

I also must have all transportation changes sent to me in writing.  We cannot accept transportation changes over the phone.  

Snack- Please send a snack daily.  Your child may have a water bottle in class to drink throughout the day.  No soda or candy for snack please.  

Don't forget to sign up for our Remind App!
