Virtual Learning on December 6
The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) has designated Tuesday, December 6, as a virtual learning day for all students. Many schools across the district serve as polling locations, and this transition to virtual learning will ensure fewer disruptions to students and faculty and help facilitate a smooth election day for Georgia’s U.S. Senate runoff.
“We view voting as a fundamental right for citizens,” said Dr. Vasanne S. Tinsley, Interim Superintendent. “As we did during the mid-term elections earlier this week, we want to continue to do our part to ensure safe, secure, and easily accessible locations for voters who choose to exercise this right.”
Schools will share more information with families in the coming weeks to facilitate a successful instructional day for all students.
Green Light ART Project
The Green Light ART project is a partnership between the City of Dunwoody, their Art Commission and Dunwoody High School. This project uses artwork to beautify traffic light boxes located throughout Dunwoody. Click here to learn more about the project and view a Green Light ART piece done by one of our DHS students, Shrividya Guru.
We've pushed out the senior photo deadline to Nov. 30 to allow remaining seniors (almost 200) to schedule and take their yearbook photos. Given the many months seniors had had to make appointments, this was a difficult decision to make as it severely delays our progress on the yearbook. PLEASE schedule your sessions IMMEDIATELY. In addition to the usual Cady studios, students may also schedule a session at DHS on Friday, Nov. 18 (the Friday before Thanksgiving break). Remember our photography contract with Cady Studios only mandates that formal poses (tux and drape photos) have to be taken by Cady. Anyone who has casual photos to submit in addition to the Cady-taken formal poses can email those to firstname.lastname@example.org . Feel free to reach out with any questions!
Holiday Improv Show
Come see Dunwoody Wildcat Theatre’s Improv Troupe on Friday, December 2 at 7:00 pm in the DHS Auditorium. $5 at the door.
Special guest, Sean Bailey, will host a fun Holiday Spectacular Show! Sean has 23+ years of Improv experience in L.A., Orlando and Atlanta. He is excited to share his comedic flair with DHS's talented Improv students. This is THE IMPROV SHOW to be at! New Improv games! Exciting spontaneous antics! Guaranteed laughs and a whole lot of improvised on-the-spot fun!
If you are interested in attending an HBCU please come by the Counseling Office to leave your name. We will have a limited number of fee waiver codes for the Common Black Application.
PTSO Membership & Annual Fund Drive
The PTSO Membership and Annual Fund drive is in full swing. We are so thankful for the families who have already given to our PTSO Annual Fund this year. Our family participation is currently at 19%. We need that number to increase in order to accomplish our initiatives for this year, we need your support! Please consider donating today! The DHS Annual Fund is used to support students, teachers, staff, and families at DHS. These donations are essential to providing high-quality programs and activities that would otherwise not be possible. Your financial contribution helps to fill the gap to provide instructional materials, professional development, student recognition, PTSO scholarships, College Planning, campus beautification, and PTSO-sponsored events. These initiatives are a key reason DHS is able to provide a quality education for our children. The DHS PTSO is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Tax ID 58-2617690 and is eligible for company matching gift programs. CLICK HERE for the link to join PTSO and make a donation.

Left it at Home? Too Bad! No Drop-Offs Allowed
Students & Parents! Effective immediately, there will be no drop-offs of any kind allowed during the school day.
DHS cannot be responsible for items left at the school for the student. Unless it is an emergency, we will not interrupt instructional time to call a student out of class to retrieve dropped off items.
Students must bring with them to school each morning ALL items that they need. Thank you for your cooperation!

If you have a Junior this year, it's time to get their meningitis vaccination booster. Follow the links below for a letter from the Georgia Department of Public Health about the requirements for every 11th Grader in the state of Georgia. There is some wonderful information about the vaccine and meningitis and why this is so important.
If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to me directly at (678) 874-8507.
I'm happy to help.
