First Week Bell Schedule 

We will not begin the Wildcat ROAR 30 until the second week of school due to the need to have homeroom at the beginning of each day for the first week of school to distribute schedules, distribute the Student Code of Conduct, administer the test on the Student Code of Conduct, and handle other start of the year procedures.  The modifications to the bell schedule for mornings, the first week of school, are listed below:

Homeroom            8:10 - 8:40

1st Period              8:46 - 10:09

2nd Period            10:15 - 11:38

The regular bell schedule will resume at 11:38.

Also, please note the new dismissal time this year is 3:15.

 

Bell Schedule for after the first week of school.


Homeroom Assignments and Locations

There will be signs posted in the main hallway between the Media Center and the Cafeteria with locations for homerooms.  Homerooms are broken down by grades in alphabetical order.  Also, if your student is a 9th grader or otherwise new to DHS, please assure them that we know it is a big building, and there will be plenty of friendly faces to extend your student a warm, Wildcat welcome, and assist them in finding their homeroom location and classes during the day.


Chromebook Distribution 

Chromebooks will be issued starting August 10th during homeroom pending receipt of a signed User Agreement (details below).  Please follow the procedures outlined in this communication to receive a Chromebook. 

In preparation for distribution, we need your assistance with the following: 

  1. Every student must have a signed User Agreement.
  2. If a student has a DCSD-issued Chromebook, they will not be able to obtain a new device until their old one has been returned and we can confirm that the device, charger, and bag are in working condition. 
  3. Please review the [optional] insurance information HERE.
 

Fall 2022 Schedules and Schedule Change Requests

Parents and students, please continue to follow the same process for electronically submitting schedule change requests.  We cannot process schedule changes by email, phone call, or voicemail message to Mr. Jameson or any of the counselors due to volume.  This electronic process routes the request to your student's counselor, so that they can check the impact of any changes on the classes your student needs for graduation, diploma choice, pathways, and so on.  

 

Our Counseling Department is working to diligently address concerns submitted on schedule change request forms while enrolling new students.  If you visit the link below, it will give you more information about the schedule change request process and a link to the electronic schedule change request form.

 

There also will be QR codes posted in the hallway outside the Counseling Office that students can scan that will take them to this web page.
