On behalf of the Donald A. Quarles Early Childhood Center, welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We hope that you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer and are as eager as we are to start off another great year!

We invite you to attend our Open House where school procedures will be discussed, and you will have the opportunity to visit your child’s classroom. We also invite you to Back to School Night where you will receive detailed information about your child’s classroom from their teacher. Please see the dates below:

  • Quarles Open House for all parents/guardians Thursday, August 30, 2018 1:30 PM
  • Back to School Night for Pre-K only Tuesday, September 11, 2018 6:00 PM
  • Back to School Night for Kindergarten only Wednesday, September 12, 2018 6:00 PM

School begins on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. Please ensure that your child has his or her bus tag attached to their back pack with all their information filled out when they arrive to school on September 4, 2018.  This bus tag serves as each student’s identification document.

If your child will be riding a bus to school, please ensure that they board a First Student Bus headed to Donald A. Quarles School. In addition, please notify your child’s teacher in writing if they will be picked up by an authorized adult from school on the first day.

Security:  Please remember that anyone visiting Quarles or signing out students must report to the main office and present photo identification.

We look forward to an amazing 2018-2019 school year!  Please contact us with any questions.
