McAuliffe International School will host school tours from 8:30-9:30am every Friday in October, 2013. From November 1, 2013, to January 31, 2014, we will host school tours 8:30-9:30am every Monday – Friday. To book a school tour, please sign up at: http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090B4AAAAB4-mcauliffe. We will limit tours to 6 families a day to reduce the impact on our teachers and students. Please leave younger siblings at home during the tours. When you sign up, you only need to register your student’s name. Please just register one time slot per family.

Next First Friday Coffee – Friday, February 7th
Parents, please join us in the library for coffee and doughnuts the first Friday of each month from 8:00-9:00am. This is a great way to talk with other parents and Community Liaison Cindy Eastman in a relaxed environment and discuss ways you can volunteer and get involved at McAuliffe, plus learn about upcoming school events. We hope to see you there!
Winter Weather Information
The decision to keep schools open or to close them during winter weather conditions is not a simple one, but it is made with one overriding factor in mind: the well-being of our students, their families and staff. It is a good idea to decide in advance how to best keep up with the changes, what childcare arrangements are needed, and how to adjust if schools closed due to inclement weather. Detailed DPS winter weather and snow day information, including information on how families can find out if school is closed, can be found on the transportation website transportation website or on the DPS website.
Students can now order their McAuliffe uniforms online at http://www.saiteamsportsnorth.com/school-uniforms-mcauliffe-international-c-64.html. Orders will be processed each month on the 15th. Once orders are filled, they will be shipped directly to the student’s home.
McAuliffe Family Handbook
The updated McAuliffe Family Handbook is available in PDF format here. We will not provide a printed version this year but will make it available throughout the year on the Parent page of the website.
