  • Doors Open 8:30am

    Dear Delaware Families - 

    This is a friendly reminder that our doors do not open until 8:30 am each day. Teachers are preparing for the day and unable to supervise students before that time.

    We have a bell that rings, and it can be heard outside the building. If you are waiting in car line, please do not allow your child to enter the school until the morning bell rings at 8:30 am.

    Please let me know if you have any questions,

    Thank you!

    As we approach our second Virtual Wednesday of the school year, I wanted to send out a few reminders for our families that will make all students' Zoom-ing experiences the very best they can be!

    Included in this newsletter is also a link to apply for low- or no-cost wireless internet at your residence.  Check it out!

  • Virtual Wednesdays

    Posted by Delaware Elementary on 8/25/2020

    Dear Families -

    We've had a GREAT first two days at school in our beautiful new building!  Our Monday/Tuesday crew has been fantastic about learning our new procedures and where to find everything!  We can't wait to reconnect with our Thursday/Friday crew at the end of this week!

    Tomorrow is Virtual Wednesday - teachers will be online with their students - using Zoom - beginning at 8:30 am.  Teachers have established which 4.5 hours of the day they'll be teaching lessons virtually with the students, and these times are posted in Canvas under announcements.

    Please ensure your child logs onto their Canvas by 8:30 am so they may hear special morning announcements & instructions.  Your teacher is the BEST source of information for links and schedules, so please send them a message if something is not going quite right.

    Our instructional technologist, Miss Cabrales, will be available to parents via email ( and by phone at 417-523-3700.  She can provide some technical assistance, but for questions about specific links or schedules, please contact your child's teacher through the Canvas Inbox on your child's Canvas account.

    We know this will be a bit bumpy the first week, but we'll work together to work out the kinks.  Thank you for your patience & flexibility.  Parents - YOU are appreciated!

    Meantime - enjoy this music video from one of my all-time favorite movies. Yes, I know you'll probably chuckle when you see it.  That's okay! This perfectly sums up how our teachers are feeling about tomorrow!  Enjoy!  :-)


    Mrs. Young, Proudest Principal in the Whole Wide World
