Family Conferences Information
If your student is failing a class, we will be reaching out to you to schedule a set time to meet with you and your student to discuss how we can best support your child’s learning. You can reach out to Ana Campos if you have questions or would like to schedule a meeting prior to hearing from a teacher.

Your Voice/Tu Voz Survey Results
We’ve received your responses from the Your Voice/Tu Voz Survey and we are working to improve upon the feedback. Some areas we are focusing on include communication and making our school safer. We are working with our students to implement restorative practices so students learn to handle conflict with one another more effectively.

Social Media Safety Training
The Family of Community Engagement is offering a Social Media Safety for Families Workshop on March 12 from 5-6 p.m. This session will provide resources and tips for families on the dangers of social media and how to help students stay safe and smart online. Families will gain valuable information and collaborate with other families on technology safety solutions. We will launch an interactive training module for DPS families as well to use after this session and receive certification they have completed the training. Families can learn more and RSVP here. Questions can be directed to Jasmine Rigby.
