DCE Community: We are opening back up in HYBRID on Monday, March 1st! As per Superintendent Sanchez, those with an IEP, receiving bilingual services, and/or those designated "at risk" are the top priorities. We are so EXCITED to welcome you back to the campus. School starts at 845am and ends at 325pm. 1. Remember to wear a properly fitted mask (bring extras in case it gets damaged or dirty). 2. If you are new to hybrid and need bus transportation, stop by the school for a form. 3. During remote learning times, students will need to be on LIVE with their teachers during instruction (reading, math, science, social studies, art, music, library, counseling). Otherwise they are to do their work independently. They may get on TEAMS if they have questions for the teacher and for more support. Teachers will give more direction with this. 4. The gym, cafeteria, library, and playgrounds are still closed for now. Hopefully we can get better understanding of how to use them safely again soon. 5. Drop off is still at the front office (stay in your vehicles) starting at 830am. Pick up is still in the parking lot off of HWY 314 at 325pm. Please call 966-1800 if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to support you and your students.

We are anticipating that we will start school as scheduled on August 18th. We are hopeful that it will be in-person with all our students but are preparing for variations that may need to take place do to COVID-19 CDC guidelines.
