We will be opening up public enrollment to all interested students in two weeks. Please get your re-enrollment paperwork completed before then to ensure your child’s place for next year. We expect to reach full enrollment, and we cannot guarantee space for returning students who do not get their paperwork in before the 1st.
This Friday we will be hosting the first session of a workshop called the Empowerment Project, hosted by members of DVSAS. The first session is focused on explaining what makes a relationship healthy/unhealthy and the concept of consent. The workshop will take place remotely, so all students coming to school will need to have their computers and headphones with them. There will be a middle school session and a high school session to ensure that the material is age appropriate.
We remind families that we still require a quarantine period following out-of-state travel for those who are not yet fully vaccinated. Please see the Covid Risk Management Plan for the latest information. As we are in a period of flux, we expect these policies to be changing more rapidly moving forward. We will update you all in the likely event of changes between now and spring break.
All families are encouraged to take advantage of the tutoring times reserved on Fridays (9:00-10:00 for high school students, 2:00-4:00 for middle school students). Students who are not caught up with their work will be required to attend these sessions. Anyone looking for assistance can book times with their teachers during these times.
Calculators are required for math class (graphing in the high school, scientific in the middle school). Please make sure that your student comes prepared to math class, whether online or in-person, with the necessary materials.
Midterms conferences will be held the week of April 19th. Your child’s advisor will reach out to you with a schedule to sign up for conferences in the coming weeks. We invite families to arrange conferences outside of this dedicated block anytime that they have concerns.
We are tentatively proceeding with a plan for our first overnight field experience since the start of the pandemic. Assuming current trends hold, high school students will be eligible a week spent isolated in nature May 17-21. Participation in this event will likely require a covid test and isolation for the weekend beforehand. Additional details will be released shortly. There will be an option available for those who are uncomfortable with overnight outings at this time.
We are beginning to gear up for our largest fundraiser of the year. We are still working out the details with several possible plans on what it might look like in the late spring. The one thing we do have to start with is collecting of donations for the auctions. Please contact Elizabeth if you have items to donate. We love locally made items from small businesses and we will help promote them through our website, social media pages, and at our auction.
Keep your eyes out for more info coming soon about our upcoming fundraiser!
As life is slowly coming back to more in-person activities, we are ready and welcome for parent participation to resume. Every family is required to fulfill 36 hours within the school year. We have all kinds of activities that range for items you can do at your own home or at the school. Please contact Elizabeth.
UPDATE: Friday opportunity to assist us move 25 desks from WWU to EA. 1:00pm. Please contact Elizabeth if you can lend a hand, we have plenty of vehicles, just need some able bodies to help move the desks.
