Happy Birthday to You


We wish a Happy Birthday to the following student who is celebrating his birthday this week at the Deerfield School:


Eric Cui


Arrival and Dismissal: Safety Concern

Each morning and afternoon, we have vans that bring students to Deerfield or pick them up at the end of the day. They often do so in the front of the building. When the students are getting on or off of a van and the van's lights are flashing, please do not pass the van. This creates a potentially unsafe situation for our students and staff members. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
