Breakfasts and lunches information
Beginning Monday March 23, the start of spring break, Dublin City Schools’ buses will be at the locations and times listed at this link, for approximately one-half hour, to provide grab-n-go breakfasts and lunches to any students who need them. Pick up breakfasts and lunches will still be available at Dublin Scioto High School and Riverside Elementary between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Both services will be available Monday-through Friday, including the week of Spring Break, March 23-March 27.
Mental health support
We all need to take care of ourselves and our families’ mental health during this challenging time. Social distancing will be difficult for many and we do not know the duration at this time. The State of Ohio’s mental health hotline is 1-877-275-6364, 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Mon.-Fri. Mental health information from the CDC can be found at this link.
We continue to work on setting up a system to get technology into the hands of students who need it and to establish Chromebook repair drop-offs. Our current information regarding tech support is posted at this link. This page will be updated with more details as we go forward.

A Note from Dr. D: Be a "SMART" Parent
Although we are living in a time period that we have never walked before…I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to not minimize the power of what you SAY and what you DO truly does matter for those you love. This is a great opportunity to be present and purposeful with your teens and family.
With that being said, I thought I would help remind you to continue to do what you do best,
Be a SMART Parent:
Set Limits. Remember, what you did to keep your teen safe as a young child, will still help keep him or her safe during this time. Set limits with clear expectations and consequences for breaking them. A great deal of things in the world are changing; don’t let your expectations be one of them. Don’t count on anyone else but YOU to “Just Say NO!” when you know you should.
Messages. Let your teen know the use of alcohol and other drugs during this time is absolutely unacceptable in your family. Don’t leave room for interpretation. Be clear. Be consistent. Discuss your expectations and consequences. Don’t assume your child knows where you stand – not talking is often interpreted as permission to drink, VAPE, smoke or use other drugs.
Awareness. Now more than ever, know where your kids are, who they are with, what they are doing, and when they will be home. Be respectful and let your child know you love them enough that you will monitor them. Remember to monitor all media sources and activity.
Resources. You are not alone. If you need help with strategies or for additional information feel free to email us at GeorgiAnn Diniaco email@example.com or Carly George at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back with you as soon as possible. A list of local resources/links is available for you at the bottom of this page.
Take time to talk! What a great time to talk with your child (not text), play board games, cook dinner together, eat together, make memories together…. take advantage of these precious moments. Be present and purposeful. Teens want to talk yet they also want you to listen. Create ways to stay connected.
We WILL get through this…Don’t forget to take care of yourself.
Thanks for all you do, today and always.
GeorgiAnn Diniaco “Dr. D.”
