Principal's Message

Hello Northside Preschool Parents!

My name is Rhonda Wright and I am the principal of Northside and Grove Park Preschools.  I am so excited to finally announce that the Danville Public Schools has approved our reopening plan with a small change.  Northside will reopen school with students coming in on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for 5 ½ hours.  Wednesday will be a cleaning and collaborating day for teachers.  At this time, preschool will not offer any virtual instruction.  

We have been busily planning to have your wonderful preschooler come to school.  We have developed many safety protocols to keep everyone safe and healthy.  We will be having a socially-distanced and scheduled Open House on Monday, August 24th.  Your child’s teacher will be calling soon to schedule your time to come in to visit your child's classroom, learn about our safety protocols and to meet your child’s teachers.  They will share that on the Tuesday and Thursday of that week we will stagger the children in to get them used to coming to school.  The following Monday, August 31st will be the first day of school for all of the preschoolers.  

As you are preparing for school, we ask you to think about your child’s clothing.  Slip on or velcro shoes help keep shoelaces from dragging.  Also, if your child wears pants or shorts, consider elastic waistbands as they are easier for the children to pull up and down on their own.  We are so excited to meet your children again!  I think it is going to be a wonderful school year.  If you have any questions, please feel free to our Northside Preschool office (434) 773-8301 and ask for Principal Wright!  I will be happy to answer any of your questions.
