Dixon Families: Despite our continuously improving dismissal time, there is a concern with traffic blocking intersections. That said, Sgt. Boley and I are going to try and get 2-lines of traffic in the lot, and once stopped, load those vehicles, let them exit and bring in two more rows. It is our hope that this will mitigate the overflow of traffic by at least one row each time cars line-up. Your patience and understanding is much appreciated as we tread through dismissing this higher than normal percentage of car riders. Please remember that safety is our number one concern.

Joshua Dixon: This is a reminder to all families that are car riders OR walkers at the end of the day. Walkers are considered those students that physically walk home with someone and car riders are those students that get picked up and ride home in a car. The students understand this. The high-volume of traffic is moving steadily with the circulation time lessening daily. The current dismissal protocol is a safe process. It is very confusing, and some students are getting upset when they are told to leave with the walkers, when in fact, they are getting in cars parked in the side lot. The dangers of school dismissal are all too real and this is a major safety concern. Beginning tomorrow, same as last year, the side lot will be blocked off. Please, the children respect the process and understand what they are supposed to do at dismissal time. Car riders waiting at the flag pole will be dismissed after those following the dismissal routine.

Joshua Dixon: Due to ACCESS inadvertently assigning the same email password to multiple students, Dixon student emails have been temporarily disabled and students will be assigned a new password today. In-person learners will receive it from their teacher and remote learners will have the information in their instructional packet for pick-up. Families that already picked up a packet, can email your child's teacher for the new password. Your patience is appreciated.

Dixon:Dear Families, what an absolutely amazing first day of school. Our new arrival routine worked well. Your children did fantastic with masks, temperature taking, hand washing, lunch and recess. I am so proud of them! We will be making some internal changes to make pick-up smoother and faster. If you could please put the family car-card in the passenger window instead of the dash, that would be helpful. Thank you for understanding that many more parents are picking up this year and that this was our first day. Also, remember that if your child is remote, packet pick-up begins on Fri. prior to each upcoming week. If your work schedule does not allow pick-up during school hours, please call the office and we would be glad to place the packet outside in a container near the front doors. Please remember our new start time is 8:55 and 1st period begins at 9:10. Preschool and Kindergarten testing/screening will continue for the remainder of the week. Please use EXIT 10 doors. As always your patience, understanding, and continued support are extremely appreciated, especially as teachers work through having both in-person and remote learners. We are aware that some logons and usernames are not working. Our Technology Coordinator has been working with the folks that support that platform and if a new password is needed, we will get that to you once we hear from our support company. Again, much appreciation for your understanding as we work to put these new procedures and mandates in place. Thank you for sharing your children with us and have a super evening.

Joshua Dixon Families, My apologies that the link for the power point did not work properly. I have reset the presentation and hopefully this link will work. It is also in a folder under documents on the Dixon Web Page. Thank you for your understanding. I will also be working with the video editor to see why the video is not showing up. https://5il.co/k1dm
