It was great to see so many of you at our Back To School Event on Wednesday! We love our community and are so excited for the school year! Staff has had a great week of professional development and can’t wait to see the students!
Just a reminder-Trips are coming up very quickly!
Please know that the district’s medication
review is often the most stressful part of the trip departures, and that medication can not go on trip until the forms have been reviewed and approved by the school nurse. Please make sure that all your forms for all your student’s medications, including over the counter medications such as Advil and Tylenol, plus the medication in its original prescription bottle,
are here at school no later than Monday, August 13th for high school (10th, 11th, 12th) and Wednesday, August 15 for farm school (7th, 8th, 9th). The form has to match the dosage exactly. Thank you for your cooperation! If you have any questions, contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Dorothia at email@example.com
On Monday, August 13 our 9th and 12th graders come back for a Leadership Half Day. The start time is 8:10 am. Students will be served breakfast and will be dismissed at 11:30 am. The buses will be running.
On Tuesday, August 14 is the first full day of school for all students! The start time is 8:10 am and Dismissal is at 3:35 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
Transportation: Our DPS bus service starts Monday, August 13. DPS recommends arriving at the bus stop at least 5-10 minutes early the first few days. If your student has a bus +pass, please have them use it. If they do not yet have one, Carol can request one for them. DPS will let all students on the bus for the first few weeks whether or not they have a +pass, but eventually, they will be required to have one. As we grow as a school, our buses are increasingly full, and we have requested large buses from DPS.

If you are dropping off your student, please drop them off on Raritan Street to the North of the large black gates (closer to 43rd street). Our buses park to the south of the gates closer to 42nd street and need room to safely let students on and off the bus.
School Supplies and Homework: Students should plan on bringing school supplies and their summer homework back on the first day of school. Here is a link to the homework an supply list http://dmhs.dpsk12.org/about/supply-list/
Lunch Application and Accounts:
If you have not yet done so, please fill out the Free and Reduced lunch application here:
We ask that everybody fill it out ,as it helps us apply for grants. Please remember that all students receive free breakfast if they want it.
We also recommend that everybody set up a myschoolbucks account for your student. This account can be used to pay for lunch and eventually, all school fees.
