Congratulations to our DDE Teams on an awesome Spring Season!

This Week's Schedule

  • Students whose last names start with the letters L-Z are scheduled to attend Related Arts in person this week.
  • No School Monday, May 31st-Memorial Day


Please continue to complete COVID check list prior to 7:30am each day.

This is just a reminder that while our eight period day concludes at 11:40 am, instruction runs through the afternoon in the form of office hours, small group instruction, and intervention. We encourage you to take some time to review your child's schedule to ensure he/she takes advantage of all educational opportunities available to him/her.

Morning Drop Off

To avoid the long lines and the back up of cars in the morning, students can be dropped off as early as 7:00am to the New Gym. Doors open at 7:20am for students to report directly to their homerooms.

Attendance UPDATE!

It is important you call the attendance line at 732-431-3910, option 1, for the following reasons:
  1. To report your child absent if he/ she is neither well enough to come to school nor attend school virtually.
  2. If your child is not feeling well, and he/she is scheduled to attend school in person, please keep your child home. He/she may still access school virtually and be marked present for the school day. However, you must call the attendance line to let us know.
In either case, please leave a message with your child's name, grade, specific reason for absence, duration of absence (if known), and your relationship to the student. You may also email Kristy Patmore at
