Student & Family Handbook

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Deerfield Elementary School! At Deerfield, we are committed to providing a safe, positive environment that meets the diverse needs of all learners. Our exceptional staff supports this every day and provides high-quality instruction for all of our students.

Please take the time to read the school handbook carefully.  We have tried to include as much information as possible to help you with the policies and procedures that we use at school each day.  If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact me. 

There are a variety of ways to participate in your child’s school experience at Deerfield.  Family members are encouraged to be classroom volunteers and to join our Parent Teacher Organization.  Other ways to participate include reading with your child and helping complete homework.  A strong home-school connection is an essential aspect of your child’s education.

We are all vital members of the team that contributes to your child’s success.  By working together, we are confident that we will have a successful school year. Thank you for allowing the staff at Deerfield to be a part of your child’s educational experience.


Mr. Jim Arata
