Bus Riders:
Beginning November 11th, students without ID's will be asked to return to the school office in the afternoon and if they are not shown as a paid rider, they will not be allowed to ride the bus. Please remind your students to have their ID with them each day. Whether the bus driver recognizes your student or not, it is expected and necessary that they show their ID.


Electronic Use During Homeroom

DPM-W Parents: For the month of November, students will be allowed to use some of their personal electronics during homeroom. At the end of the month, discussion will take place with the teachers to see how it went. If students continue to show responsibility, we will continue to offer this option for our students. Please note that your students will need a signed permission slip. It explains the details and expectations of the trial period. You can click HERE to see the rules that will be posted in every classroom.
