Daily School Procedures

**Special Notice to Parents - If your child is late to school, please come in and sign your child in at the main office.  This is a district-wide procedure and also a safety issue.

If your child is absent or tardy, it is mandatory to provide a written excuse.  The office will keep the excuses on file and annotates whether or not the absence is excused.
 

Why Welch?

Did you know that our school is named after a brave man named Major George S. Welch?  He was America's first WW II Air Hero!  To learn more click here

 

 

Where in the world is Caesar Rodney?

Your family should have received a letter in the mail with a copy of the Horse and Rider pictured above (right next to the photo of our school).  We are asking that families take Caesar Rodney with them on their summer travels and take a picture with Caesar Rodney wherever your travels take you.  There is a space dedicated on our school website where we will post the pictures of your travels.  The school website is http://www.welch.cr.k12.de.us/ (Quick link to photos is to the right next to the New symbol)

Will Caesar Rodney visit the beach, other states, or another country?  Only you know the answer to this question. 

Once you have taken your picture, please send it electronically to jason.payne@cr.k12.de.us.  Along with the picture, please include a short summary of where the photo was taken and please identify the people in the picture.  Please make sure that all people in the picture understand that their picture will be on our school website.

School Physicals

To Parents/legal guardians of children that receive medical care at Dover Air Force Base Clinic:
If your child has had a school physical within the last 9 months at the Dover AFB clinic and he/she has no new chronic medical conditions since that physical, after completing all necessary parental portions, you may drop the school physical paperwork off at the front desk of the clinic to which your child is assigned. The paperwork will be available for pick up at the clinic front desk after 5 duty days. Additionally, if your child has had a sports physical after 01 Apr 2014 it is good through 30 Jun 2015 and another sports physical is not needed unless your child is participating in a sport not indicated on the current form. Please remember to stop by immunizations and pick up a current copy of your child's immunization record to provide to the school. *Note that same form is used for both school and sports physical.
