Our Mission Dennett Elementary School is committed to providing a challenging curriculum to meet the needs of all students in a safe, accepting, and nurturing setting. Our goal is to assist each student in the attainment of his/her full social, cognitive, physical, and cultural potential. We believe in a three way partnership among school, parents, and community.
Student Handbook Update- The Civil Rights coordinator and contacts have been updated and the discipline procedures have been revised in the Student Handbook. Please click here for the latest handbook.
Raptor Security System - We have added another layer of security to our school. Upon entering the building, guests are asked to have their Driver's License scanned by our new Raptor system. This device will print an ID badge so that we know who is in the building at all times. Please remember to bring your license with you whenever you come into the building.

Student Safety: All schools in the Silver Lake Regional School District including Halifax, Kingston and Plympton use the A.L.I.C.E. protocols. All staff have received training and we practice evacuation and safety drills with our students and staff. We use age appropriate language and processes depending on the age of the students. We are very fortunate to have an excellent working relationship with all our local law enforcement agencies as well as fire departments and work closely with them on our safety protocols and drills. Here is a link to the A.L.I.C.E. website that has some excellent resources and videos https://www.alicetraining.com/our-program/alice-training/k12-education The safety and security of our students and staff is always our primary concern.
