Springdale News


Monday, August 10 will be the first full day of school for students in grades 1-7 and in-zone Kindergarten students with last names A-H at Springdale. Please note that students may want to bring a bottle of water or a refillable water bottle as water fountains will not be in use. We are getting a refillable water bottle for each student, but they have not arrived yet. 

Also please note that no student may be dropped off on the side of the building. All students must be dropped off in front of the building. We will take each child’s temperature before he/she leaves the vehicle, so please do not let your child out and leave until his/her temperature has been taken. We will use all three lanes for drop-offs in the mornings. Please remember that students may not be dropped off before 7:00 A.M. and classes begin at 7:50 A.M.
