Mrs. Toni Rando, Delaney School Administrative Assistant, with the assistance of Mrs. Kerry Richardson and Mrs. Julie Cashman Delaney School Nurses and  Ms. Haughey,  Roderick School Nurse, work tirelessly to organize this endeavor. Thank you to these ladies and to all those listed below who helped to make the holidays special for our children.

Delaney Library Volunteers

Library volunteers are desperately needed to re-shelve books.  The Delaney library is very busy and the book cart gets full very easily. It is so important to have the books back on the shelves as quickly as possible.
Times are flexible and you can stay as little as 20 minutes or more if your schedule allows.  
If you are interested please email me at
You must have a CORI on file to volunteer.

Delaney Drop off Safety

During morning drop off protocol
Please stop only at a cone at the sidewalk.
For safety and traffic pattern reasons please don't drop students prior to getting a cone spot. Many drivers are not mindful and your child is at risk if you let them leave the car outside of the sidewalk markers.
Thank you.

Students and teachers pass between buildings throughout the day. Please be aware and drive cautiously whenever you are in the circle during school hours.
