From the Principal

Welcome to Manchester Elementary School, Home of the Shiners!

Each year brings about exciting changes; this year is no exception.  We are very pleased to present a new and improved website.  Our goal was to simplify and improve the ease of retrieving information for our visitors.  We encourage families to  explore the site and utilize its resources.  In addition, SDCSC schools are implementing a new information management system entitled Skyward.  Parents and students will have access to important information such as attendance, grades, discipline and schedules.  Additionally, Skyward has partnered with RevTrak to allow parents to track and manage student cafeteria accounts. Online registration for returning students is also managed through the Skyward system.

New student registration will be held at MES on Tuesday, July 18th from 11:00am-6:30pm.  Returning families needing computer access or help with online registration are invited to school on Tuesday as well.  Personnel will be on hand to take cash/ check book fee payments.  Those wishing to pay by credit card must do so online.  Free and reduced lunch applications will need to be completed at the school office on Tuesday.  If you received a Direct Certification letter in the mail, there is no need to fill out an application.  Class lists will be posted once the registration process is complete.  

Our faculty and staff members are anxious to meet students and parents on July 31st at our annual Meet the Teacher event. Classroom teachers will present a twenty minute informational session at 6:00pm and will repeat the same information at 6:30pm. There is no need to attend both sessions.  If you have more than two children at MES, please feel free to bring a family member or other adult to attend a session for you.  The office will also be open to collect fees, medicine, or other paperwork, if needed.  

The first student day will be on Wednesday, August 2nd.  Buses will arrive at MES at approximately 7:35am each morning.  Breakfast is served from 7:30-7:50am in the school cafeteria.  All students must be in their classrooms by 7:55am.  Our dismissal time has been extended by ten minutes due to schedule changes at the middle and high school.  Car riders will be dismissed at 3:20pm each afternoon.  Students departing school on buses will be dismissed at approximately 3:25pm, when all of the buses arrive from the main campus.  

We are looking forward to another fun and exciting school year.
