Happy New Year Dunham Families,
We are off to a great start this January though it has not been without its difficulties as COVID-19 continues to make its presence felt. Our school community continues to be resilient and I commend you for that. We have had several students and families who have had to quarantine, do a modified quarantine, or isolate. Please remember if your child is sick don’t send them to school. Promptly contact the office when your child misses school regardless of the reason and please do not come to the school campus if you have COVID-19
At Dunham we continue to mask both indoors and outdoors as a COVID-19 mitigation measure. This means students, staff and parents / family members (over the age of 2 years old) coming onto any part of the campus all need to be wearing a face mask regardless. Bandanas, masks with valves and gaiters are not acceptable. The school will provide a disposable surgical face mask for students who need a mask or do not have the proper kind of mask.
On Monday, January 17 there is no school in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Wednesday of next week is our January spirit day, which is Crazy Hat & Socks Day. Students can wear their craziest hat and socks! It should be lots of fun.
It is transitional kindergarten and kindergarten registration time. If you have a prospective TK or K student please call or stop by the office for a registration packet.
Take care and have a wonderful 3-day weekend,
Superintendent / Principal

We are in need of substitutes for our instructional aide positions and our after school daycare aides. If you are interested in finding out more about what the process would entail please contact the school office.
