Updates and Reminders:

*Thank you to all our amazing parent volunteers who assisted with the band, orchestra, chorus, and Theater for Young Audiences performances this week.  Your support is greatly appreciated as it assists directors with focusing on students!
*DCSD continues to test for lead in all school buildings across the district.  Elementary schools, especially older facilities, are being tested first.  For complete information on the district process and school results, click HERE  .  DSA’s facility water testing is scheduled for next semester (early January).  As mandated by the district, we will let our school community know the results as soon as possible.
*9 Week progress reports were issued on October 20.  Please make sure parents are reviewing grades with students.  If challenges appear, talk with students about what is creating barrier(s) to their success.  Parents can monitor student grades through the Infinite Campus Portal.  Click HERE for account information.
