All scheduled delayed start days for the 2013-2014 school year are cancelled.
Delta Elementary is excited to announce that we will be getting a therapy dog, Dwight! Dwight comes to us from Assistance Dogs of America. Dwight is a Labradoodle, which is a mix of a Labrador Retriever and Poodle. Being mixed with a Poodle makes him a hypoallergenic dog, so Dwight should not affect people with allergies. Mrs. Savage and Mrs. Butson have been trained to be handlers of Dwight. We are very excited to welcome Dwight and see the great impact he will have on Delta Elementary.
