From the Principal

Greetings to  Dresden Families,

I hope everyone is staying safe in these challenging times.  I wanted to personally reach out to you to let you know that we will continue to utilize Schoology as our online learning platform.  It is imperative that all of our students sign up and log in to their Schoology accounts.  If you need assistance please do not hesitate to email or call the school.

On-Line Learning

While face-to-face instruction has been suspended, education will continue for students at Dresden Elementary.  Teachers will be using district created curriculum to introduce new content through Schoology accounts.

Routine and stability are important to our students.  Teachers will begin to introduce new content in a format that will mirror the school day.

Personal Items

This week the teachers and I are working to prepare your child(ren)'s belongings for pick up next week. While you will see cars in the parking lot, please know that we are following the social distancing guidelines provided by the Governor's Order.  Please see this link for the date and times available for you to pick up these items based on the student's last name.  


Please continue to monitor your e-mail accounts for important updates from our school and our district.  We also encourage you to join our Facebook page.  We are using this page to share information and make further connections with our families.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact me through my e-mail or call the school office at (586) 797-4500.
