DPS Parent Post
November 4, 2022
- Sign up for Parent Portal to keep track of grades. The first step in setting up a Parent Portal account is to retrieve the access account and password for each student directly from their school. You must present identification to do this. Parent Portal Login | Parent Portal User Guide
- Bookmark the school's website, and follow them on social media. Each of our schools have their own website, and nearly every school has social media. Check these resources for announcements, calendars, and photos from school!
- Make sure that your contact information (phone number, physical address, and email address) is correct with the school. Many schools contact home through call, email, and/or letters with important information.
- Follow our weekly newsletters! The Parent Post comes directly to your mailbox, but the Friday Feature has a new edition each Friday and includes even more photos and happenings from Danville Public Schools.

Election Day - November 8
School is out on November 8 for Election Day so our schools can be used for citizens to exercise their right to vote. Danville Transit will offer free bus service in the city on Election Day. The service will be provided for all Danville Transit operations, which include fixed-route and reservation-based services. Fixed route service reaches a majority of polling locations. The reservation-based Reserve A Ride is a door-to-door service throughout the city. Reserve A Ride is subject to capacity constraints.

Pass the Perspective with the Danville Police Department
The Danville Police Department is hosting Pass the Perspective on November 8, 2022, at 5 p.m. This program is designed for our middle school youth to gain the inside perspective on police work as well as openly share their thoughts on police officers and ways we can better serve the community and our youth. Also, the students will be able to participate in MILO (an interactive video training system) to go through the actual process our police officers utilize during their training. See the flyer below for more information.
