“Our Davie County Schools team has been working hard over the summer with planning, safety preparedness and professional growth opportunities, and we are excited to begin the learning process with your children,” Superintendent Jeff Wallace said in a letter to parents.

He stressed that children attend school daily.

“Attendance is vital to that learning experience. It is of utmost importance that students are present, engaged and participating actively in our classrooms to continue the progress we experienced as we rounded out the last school year,” he said. “We are confident that our students and staff will continue to overcome the challenges of the past few years and continue to grow and learn.”

Elementary students begin their days at 8:10 a.m., and will be dismissed at 2:50 p.m. Middle school students’ days start at 7:45 a .m. and end at 3 p.m.

At Davie High, students attend class from 8:30 a.m.-3:25 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and from 9 a.m.-3:35 on Fridays.

“We encourage open lines of communication among parents guardians, teachers and administrators, as we believe that a strong partnership is essential for every student’s success,” Wallace said.

“Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your children. Together, we will engage, equip and empower our students toward a bright and successful future.”
