Discovery Elementary School Student and Parent Electronic Handbook

General Information and Code of Conduct


Know the ABC’s of Our School


   “Discovery Is What We’re All About!”

Welcome to Discovery School


This electronic handbook is designed to provide you with basic information that will hopefully answer many questions you may have about HOW we do things and WHY we do the things we do. This may be the first experience in an organized school program for both you (as a parent) and your child (as a student).  It is our mission at Discovery School to make this experience a positive one for all.  In order to successfully accomplish this, we need your cooperation. Everything we do at Discovery School is initially based on the safety of your child. Nothing is more important. Working with us and adhering to established procedures will go a long way in getting your child off to a good start and providing a solid foundation for his/her educational future.
