Dear Families,

Welcome to Ralph Dunlap’s 2015-2016 school year!

We have new school hours this year. Click here for kindergarten hours.
Click here for first - sixth grades hours. This change will enable our teachers to collaborate in teams to discuss student achievement and look at best practices to increase learning opportunities for our students.

I am very excited about the start of our year and all the wonderful learning that is going on. With new staff members added to an already talented group of teachers and staff, Dunlap School is truly a unique place to explore, experience, and discover a world of learning.

As many of you already know, I am a firm believer that with parents and staff working together as a team, towards the same goal, every child will succeed. We must keep children first in all we do! A school-community with this common commitment will stand ready, willing and able to do what is needed for educating the children. I know Ralph Dunlap School is such a place!

As your principal, you can expect that I will reach out to you and ask for support, suggestions and involvement. I will encourage you to join our team, our school family, and our fantastic PTA, where preparing children for the future is our number one priority.

As we work together during the year, I invite you to stay actively involved. Ralph Dunlap School needs your support and volunteerism. Through team work, open communication and a dedication to continuous learning, we will continue the fine Ralph Dunlap tradition of being a school where children and their families are connected and part of a positive learning environment.

Once again, welcome back, and if you and your children are new to the Ralph Dunlap School community – welcome! I look forward to partnering with you and am confident this will be a fantastic year!


Mrs. Herbstreith, Principal
