To: Potential Preschool Parents,
We are in the preliminary stages of planning preschool for the 2022-2023 school year and it is imperative that we determine our numbers for preschool. The Deuel Preschool program is 3 ½ hours a day for 4 days a week. We will run a morning program and afternoon program. For the 2022-2023 school year there will be no tuition fees for your child to attend preschool.
We ask that you notify us to request the morning or afternoon session so we may do our best to meet your priority needs. Please inform us if you have carpool arrangements or other needs requiring a specific session. We also ask that you contact us even if you are not planning to send your child. This will help to ensure an accurate list. We request that you let us know by June 19th.
Please email Todd Rahlf at Todd.Rahlf@k12.sd.us with your preference for morning or afternoon class or send the contract back to the school in the return envelope enclosed. Once again even if you are not interested in enrolling your child in the program, we ask that you please email to let us know.
There is a Back-To-School Fair scheduled for August 11th. This is a great opportunity for you to come in and meet your teacher and let your children see the school. We will also request that you bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate to the Back-To-School Fair. We look forward to seeing you soon!
After School Program
The Deuel School District will be implementing an afterschool program to help kids complete tasks or homework that they are struggling with. The program will be offered to grades 3-8. It will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45 PM – 5:00 PM in the school library.Teachers will identify the students that will attend the afterschool program, and it can change day to day.Afterschool Program Expectations:-Classroom teachers will notify parents and get approval for them to attend the program.-Classroom teachers will send a list of students that are expected to be in attendance to the after-school program supervisors.-Supervisors will work with kids in small groups or individually, depending on the number of students in the program on the given day.-Parents will be responsible for student pick up at 5 pm or have a predetermined plan with your child.-Students must be identified by the teacher to attend the afterschool program.-Behavior issues will not be tolerated, and parents will be notified to come pick up their child if there are behavior issues.
As the weather gets colder, please remember your children MUST bring proper clothing to go outside. They will go outside for recess every day unless the temperature drops below zero, or the windchill is below -10, so please make sure they come with winter coats, hats and gloves for the cold and snow pants and boots now that there is snow. They will still have to go outside even if they do not have these items, but they do not get to play in the snow. Please also remember that a lot of boots and snow pants look exactly the same, so don’t forget to label your child’s name or initials!
