Virtual Presentations for the Duneland Community

Veterans Day Tributes - Thank You For Your Service
All of the Duneland Schools honored veterans this past week, either in person or with a visual tribute, or both. The district would like to share these events and tributes with our entire school community. It is always important to honor our veterans for their service to our country.
All 10 schools in the Duneland School district are designated as Purple Star schools by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). The Purple Star designation is awarded for a school's significant display of commitment to service members, veterans, students and families connected to our nation’s military.
