    Color Days at McIlvaine   

    McIlvaine ECC will be holding school-wide color days to support instruction related to colors and readiness skills.  Please make note of the following dates so that your child can show their “true colors” at the Home of the Littlest Riders. 






    9/18 White Day

    9/19 Pink Day

    9/20 Gray Day

    9/21 Rainbow Day


    No School

    In-Service Day 

    Rainbow Day (September 21st)

    This is a chance for your child to be creative and wear as many colors as possible to school.  This special day caps off our school-wide “month of colors.”  We can’t wait to see the array of colors displayed at school on this day!  

    Picture Day is Wednesday, September 27th!

    Students will take both a class photo and individual photo during our Fall Picture Day. Flyers will be sent home on 9/13 in the Wednesday envelope with more information as well as an envelope to choose your background, picture package, and make a payment. If you send your payment to school please be sure to fill out the order form completely and enclose EXACT payment if paying by cash - photographers can not make change.

    You can also order your pictures online ahead of time by going to and entering the Picture Day ID: MJ457231Q0. There are more choices and "best value" options when you shop online!

    The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
    and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running. 

    With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
    we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.

    Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
    Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
    to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.

    The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
    or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.

    After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
    times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.

    Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
