•     Dr. Justine M. Dale  Thank you to the Dartmouth Public Schools for entrusting me with your amazing Cushman staff and your youngest learners!  I am excited to begin this next journey in my career and as I bring my experience as Principal, motivation and dedication as an educator, and nurturing and compassion as a parent to your school community. 

         Beginning  in a virtual environment and entering into a Remote to phased in Hybrid Model is unique to all of us.  Together and to the best of our abilities we can create a safe environment following guidance, while at the same time, as Early Educators, provide the care and support that our youngest learning require.  These times have been a challenge for all of us, but I am sure that we are ready to invite our children back to the classroom to experience learning through play and social-emotional guidance and support.  I hope, that in the near future, we can begin to experiencing a continued downward trend with Co-vid 19 in order to once again invite our community of volunteers back into the classrooms. 

         For now, I will be waiting to welcome you back to school through written correspondence, virtual meetings, and telephone conversations.  I am thrilled to have the pleasure of see your students in and out of the classroom beginning Sept. 15 from 9:05-12:00 for our PreK students on IEPs in the Integrated PreK program and  beginning with Cohort A on October 1 and Cohort B on October 2 for full days of instruction.  Classroom assignments have gone out and your child's teacher is preparing to see them in the classroom soon!


  •      September 28- October 2:  This week we wil continue following our current model, but will begin our transition on Thursday for inviting Cohort A students to school for a full day!  Friday we will be inviting our Cohort B students to attend.

         Drop off for Kindergarten Students will be between 8:45-8:55.  Preschool drop off will begin at 8:55-9:05.    PK parents can pick up their children at 12:00 Noon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Beginning on Thursday PreK pick up will begin at 3:05. Kindergarten Parent Pick up can begin at 3:25.

      We are so excited to see our new friends joining us on Thursday with Cohort A and Friday with Cohort B. 

        If you have any questions regarding your cohort, please call us at 508-996-3926.
