The Board of Education held a special meeting on Monday evening, November 16, to consider a recommendation pertaining to the Kansas Schools Gating Criteria. At the meeting, the Board took action to identify the district as being in the Orange Category of the criteria and to modify the learning environment for our students.
Beginning November 30, 2020, DHS will shift to the remote learning environment.
As a result of this shift, our schedule will change. We will be on a “Green/White/Green/White” day rotation in which each student is expected to Zoom into and remain for the entirety of each class on their schedule. Students will not be separated into cohorts. This new schedule can be viewed on our website (here).
Additionally, in an effort to support students in this environment we are altering the daily bell schedule to include time for Seminar. The Seminar time is added to the end of the 2nd block each day. This time will allow for students to seek out or be directed to meet with teachers for academic support. That schedule is also on our website (here).
