Back To School

On behalf of all the teachers and support staff of Pickwick Southside, I want to let everyone know how excited we are about seeing your children as they come to school. This school year will be unlike any other and I want to assure you all that each teacher and support staff member will be doing all we can each day to keep your child safe. It is also extremely important that we all are willing to work together and form strong partnerships between home and school.

There are a few school specific details that I would like to share with you in regards to the start of school.

  • Please send a bottle of water or a refillable water bottle daily with your child to school. All water fountains have been turned off at this time.

  • Student drop off in the morning time will be from 7:00-7:45 at the gym lobby. Beginning at 7:45, students may come through the front door and will be going straight to their classroom at that time.

  • Morning announcements will be done over the intercom system at 7:50 instead of our normal morning assembly.

  • Student dismissal for car riders in grades K-5 will begin at 2:45. If you are picking up a student that is in K-5 and middle school, you will need to wait until 3:00 to pick up. Students will stay in their classroom with teachers and be called up as you arrive.

  • You will notice ongoing construction at the school as our new roof is being installed. Please be mindful of them as you are dropping off and picking up students.

As always, feel free to contact me at school with any questions and concerns at 731-689-5185 or at

We are all in this together and hoping to make this year the best that it can be!
