✨ Happy New Year, Choctaws! ✨
We look forward to another great year filled with excellence, success, and endless opportunities for our students, educators, and staff!
While your child is on break, we encourage you to take a “break from the screens”
and read together. The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) is partnering
with Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) to provide at-home reading
resources for all Tennessee families of K–2 children for free. Based on a child’s grade
level, they will receive an At-Home Decodable 7 Book Series and age-appropriate
high-quality books from Scholastic. Order yours here:

Thank a bus driver today! Driving a school bus is more than a job - it's an adventure!

Everyone loves the Cake Walk at our annual Fall Festival. We are in need of store-bought cakes, cupcakes, or cookies to use during our Fall Festival on October 15. Please turn donated goods into the office by Friday, October 14. Thank you for your support!
UPDATE:We have worked closely with law enforcement. They were able to determine that the threat had nothing to do with our school system. We appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation.
The Dyer County School System takes the safety and security of students very seriously and are committed to keeping them safe while receiving an education at school. This morning we received information pertaining to a perceived threat. Dyer County Schools implemented our security procedures to keep students safe. We will be adding extra safety precautions to our day. The Dyer County Sheriff's Department is continuing to investigate any issues. We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day.
Don’t forget! School will not be in session today due to Fair Day inservice! We hope our students have the best day at the Dyer County Fair.
