High Fives for Attendance Campaign: Make sure your student is in class five days per week!
At DPS, we're launching our High Fives for Attendance campaign to remind students, parents, and the community at large that every student should be in every class everyday. We know that attendance is one of the biggest graduation indicators, and it is hard for children to catch up from missed days. Please join us in our efforts to make attendance a priority this year!
