Return to In-Person Learning

We are excited to be returning to in-person instruction beginning Tuesday, April 6th! All students will have in-person classes four days per week. Fridays will remain distance learning days with office hours, so students can come in to meet with teachers and get extra help. Students will need to sign up for a morning or afternoon time slot. Students or parents can ask any staff member to schedule a time.

Given our small size, we feel we can safely bring all of our students together at the same time, while still minimizing exposure. April 6th is the first day of fourth quarter, so that is the ideal time to bring students back. As a school we need time to prepare for larger classes, and our class schedules may need to be adjusted. Full time distance learning is still an option for individual students. If you would like to change your student’s learning model, please let us know ASAP.

Spring is on the way, and the next thing we know a new school year will be starting. We are anticipating a waiting list for fall, so if your family is interested in becoming a DPS family, please give us a call to schedule a tour and pick up enrollment paperwork.
