Virtual Office Hours for Teachers (Updated)
DCS will be offering each student a laptop to utilize at school and at home for the remainder of the semester. The cost to get a laptop is only $12.50. 6th Grade students received their paperwork this past Wednesday. Parental Consent Forms for 7th grade students will go home this Monday, January 11th and need to be returned with their payment by Wednesday, January 13th. 8th grade students will receive their packet on January 14th and everything will need be returned by January 19th. I encourage all students to get a laptop. VIP students, who didn’t initially receive a device, will be emailed on January 15th with instructions on how they can obtain a device. We hope to begin distributing devices on January 25th—we will keep you updated.
Basketball Games (Updated Information)
In order to adhere to the Mississippi Department of Health guidelines, the following polices have been put in place to ensure our school is in compliance. All spectators are required to a wear a mask to sporting events and social distancing must take place. We are only allowed to fill our gym with 250 people. My primary goal is to ensure the parents of athletes are able to watch their child participate.
Each student athlete will be given two ticket passes for family members, which will allow them to purchase 1 ticket per pass, once they arrive at the game. After your child's game, we ask that you leave the premises, so we do not go over the 250 person capacity mandate. Students who are not participating, but want to be spectators, must be accompanied by a parent in order to attend games.
