Some important reminders:
- When using Ward Street to drop off and pick up your students, please avoid the area by the apartments as this is a residential zone and you may receive a parking ticket. During the hours of arrival and dismissal only, the city allows us to use the area on our side of the school and across the cafeteria by the fenced parking lot.
- Please avoid unannounced early pick-ups as instructional time continues to be interrupted; we understand emergencies arise and we accommodate accordingly.
- With frigid temperatures upon us, please ensure students come to school wearing a warm coat, gloves and a hat.
At John C. Daniels, our primary focus is to use best practices in teaching and learning, and to implement high quality instruction that promotes student achievement every day. An Instructional Focus is something we hold ourselves accountable for and expect our students to know and be able to do to express their understanding. Our Instructional Focus is "Writing to Show Understanding."
Interim Superintendent, Dr. Mayo, has provided information about school closings and delays due to snow or bad weather. When declaring snow days the first priority is always student safety. The importance of having children in school to learn and the disruptions that a snow day causes our families are also taken into consideration.
