DMHS Families - Please Complete the Return to School Community Survey!


Hi everyone!

I am SO excited that DMHS staff will SOON be reconnecting with DMHS students and families. We would really like to hear from each and every one of you about our plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Please take a moment to complete the DMHS Return to School Community Survey.

FYI, this is the same survey that was sent in the most recent community update email from our new principal, Cori Herbst-Loehr.

Take care and be well,
