A Note from Principal Minami

Hello Knights!

I wanted to thank you all for sticking with it this year! We are only a few short weeks away from completing this school year and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are almost there. Hang in there; we got this!

As we engage in our new hybrid learning model, we are excited to have kids on campus. Please remember that our actions and words carry many meanings, and sometimes the things we say or do may seem harmless to most it can hurt others. As we work hard to spread messages of kindness and compassion, I urge each member of our DMS community to consider the words you use and how you use them. We all want to be treated with respect and kindness, so…

Attention Students

The students will keep their chromebooks over the summer and will be ready for summer school if they choose to attend.

This year we will schedule the Cohorts to return their textbooks and library books with the schedule below. The on-line students will return their materials with our “Curbside” service.

At home, have the student put their full name and student I.D. # on a sheet of paper and place this inside the top book of the 4 textbooks and any library books they will be returning. These books will not be cleared from their account until the following day. Please let the students know if there is a problem with a book, I will be contacting them. As students arrive in the morning through the front gate they are to report outside the library door. I will be giving them instructions on where the books are to be placed inside the library. I would appreciate any help in this process.

Here is the schedule for Cohort return:

May 7th, Friday, All of your classes

May 10th, Monday, All of your classes

May 11th, Tuesday, All of your classes

May 13th, Thursday, All of your classes

On-line Learners:

We will use our “Curbside” service for students to return their materials just as we did last school year. Parents will drive into the parking lot loop from Dartmouth Street, stay in their vehicle, and we will collect the books. The hours for “Curbside” service will be 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Here is the schedule for On-line return:

May 7th, Friday, 8th grade

May 10th, Monday, 7th grade

May 11th, Tuesday, 6th grade

May 12th, Wednesday and May 13th, Thursday for students that did not come on their scheduled day
