CLOSE UP IS BACK!

We are so excited to be sharing this opportunity with our students again this year! Because of the travel restrictions of the last couple of years, we are opening the trip to all 7th AND 8th graders. After this year, however, only 7th grade students will be invited to attend.


Here are Frequently Asked Questions about the trip - if you would like to sign up, there is a link at the bottom of the FAQ document. Your enrollment coupon will be sent home with your child beginning next week.


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to rebecca.smart@dsisdtx.us or kristin.wright@dsisdtx.us
