Important information to start the 2019-20 school year off at Joyce Bullock!

We invite you to attend our Annual Back to school Bash and Meet the Teacher event Thursday, August 8th from 4-6.  Please visit the cafeteria first to find out who your child's teacher is, pick up car rider cards that must be displayed on the first day of school for afternoon pickup, and visit school and community info booths.  Afterwards, you will be able to visit your child's classroom, meet the teacher, and drop off school supplies.
The school day will be 7:45-2:15.  Students must be in class by 7:45 or will be considered tardy. You may begin dropping off students in the car loop area only at 7:10 when supervision begins.
All students will be offered a free breakfast and K-2 will eat in their classrooms from 7:30-7:45. PreK and Mrs. Stone and Ms. Daley's students will eat in the cafeteria.
Remember the first week of school, kindergarteners only come one assigned day. Letters will be mailed in July to tell which day is your child's first day of school. 
1st and 2nd grade parents may walk their child to class on the first 1-2 days of school. PreK and Kindergarten parents may walk them to class the first 2 weeks of school.  Beyond these days, for the safety of all students, they will need to be dropped off in the car loop.  Under special circumstances, parents must sign in in the front office with identification to receive and wear a visitor's pass to be on campus.
