Reminders and Updates

Infinite Campus: Please be patient as we are transition to the new student information system “Infinite Campus.” Teachers are working diligently to enter grades accurately from the start. While you may not see many grades right how, more will be entered shortly as staff grow more familiar with the system.

Cell phones should be off and out of site during the day unless being used with teacher permission for instructional purposes.

Check-out: Latest time to check out a student is 2:45. This protects the instructional time for all students at the end of the day. Please plan accordingly.

DSA Student and Parent handbook available on the DSA website; production credit handbook coming soon!

PSAT: Students in 8th and 9th grade students can sign up for the PSAT Oct 15 pay $15 fee by Sept 19. Cash or check (payable to DSA), turn in to the front office. See information sent home with your student.
