Daniel Wright Junior High School E-Notice - August 7, 2021

Locker Set Up

In order to provide students with an opportunity to locate their lockers and organize their school supplies prior to the start of school, Daniel Wright is offering Locker Set Up Days. Lockers and combinations can be found on a student's schedule. Volunteers will be available on the dates and times listed below to provide students with locker numbers and combinations, help students locate their lockers, use their combinations, organize their supplies. Teachers will not be present on these days. We encourage students to come during their grade level’s assigned day; however, students may visit the school on a different grade level day if that better fits their summer schedule.

  • Locker Set Up Grade 7: Monday, August 9, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

  • Locker Setup Grade 6: Tuesday, August 10, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

  • Locker Setup Grade 8: Wednesday, August 11, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


Should you not be able to attend one of the assigned locker set up days, please note that students may not access their lockers on Tuesday, August 17 and Wednesday, August 18 due to opening year staff meetings at DW. Time is given to all students on the first day of school for locker set up if you are unable to attend one of the assigned dates.
