• Dear Parents,  

    Welcome to Dyersburg Primary School.  

    We begin the school year following the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic that forced us into distance learning in March, for the safety of our students and staff. We are excited to welcome new and returning students back to Dyersburg Primary School, even though it will look a little different this year.

    Please know all the staff at Dyersburg Primary School are committed to ensuring a safe and outstanding educational experience for all of our students...We do so with the support of parents and a community that cares deeply about the success of our students and our school. Our hardworking educators are working to enhance their expertise in our online platforms in case there is a need to continue or incorporate the use of distance learning going forward.

    The mission of Dyersburg City Schools is to provide a safe, positive environment where all children can reach their full potential. We continue to have a focus on early literacy and will be implementing our newly adopted language arts curriculum while continuing our rigorous math instruction. As we transition to our new curriculum, we understand the challenges many families are facing and we are here to support you with not only academic support, but socio-emotional and mental health support, as well. We are focused on the whole student and recognize that students must be healthy inside and out in order to reach their full potential academically.

    We are so grateful for the local support from parents, staff, community members and businesses that makes our school even better. I encourage you to support our PTO, which provides so many opportunities for both students and teachers. 

    There's a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master...and I look forward to sharing in those exciting times.  We are working hard to ensure student success during this challenging time. We are looking forward to a great school year!

    Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and I look forward to working with you!

    Sincerely,

    DPS Principal Linda DeBerry
