In order to provide students with an opportunity to locate their lockers and organize their school supplies prior to the start of school, we will be offering Locker Set Up Days. Volunteers will be available on the dates and times listed above to help students locate their lockers, use their combinations, and organize their supplies. We encourage students to visit Daniel Wright on their grade level’s assigned day; however, students may come on a different grade level day if that better fits their summer schedules. Please note that students will not be able to access their lockers on Tuesday, Aug. 17 and Wednesday, Aug. 18 due to opening year staff meetings at DW.
