Welcome Back Clarksdale Families and a Warm Welcome to all our New Families joining us for the first time.

For those who are new, “What’s Going On In the Den” is a weekly update sent to families to keep you informed on what is happening in and around Clarksdale.

Please make sure that you configure your email to ensure these messages are received and not put in your “junk” folder!

Please follow us on Twitter @ClarksdaleHDSB as we also post important information there


A few important messages for our first day:

Class lists have been posted on the school front doors and on our website.  Please ensure you have checked the lists to know who your child’s teacher is.  You will need your OEN number (which is your child’s student number, listed on your report card).

Students in grades 1-6 should meet their teacher on the rear blacktop.  Supervision will begin at 9:00 am Tuesday.  Teachers will be outside with signs and Class lists to help students find them.  The entry bell rings at 9:15 and we will make our way in to begin our first day together shortly after.

SK students are asked to meet their teachers on the kindie blacktop between 9:00 and 9:15.  JK and new SK students are asked to come at 9:30am in order to allow the returning students to get organized and settled.  It will help our little ones settle more easily into their big day!  Each kindergarten student should have received an email confirming your teacher.  If you did not receive it, please don’t worry.  We will have lists at the kindie area to help you.

Our school schedule is as follows:

9:15am entry

10:55-11:35:  first nutrition break

1:15-1:55:  second nutrition break

3:35 dismissal

Please ensure your child knows how he/she is getting home at the end of the day.  Bussed students will be escorted to the bus lines to ensure they get on the right bus.

**If you are picking up your child by car, please note that the Kiss ‘n Ride area (for drop-off and pick up)  is only on the West side parking lot.  The east Parking Lot is reserved for staff and is not designed to safely accommodate pick-ups.

If the west lot is full, please consider parking on a side street and walking your child to the school  --- or better yet, leave the car at home and walk the whole way!!

Please look for important information being sent home on the first day.  Lots of forms to fill out, so please take the time to do so as soon as possible.

We look forward to a wonderful day and a year full of learning, growth and success!

Happy First Day, Clarksdale!​​​​​​​
