Interim Assessments

Interims will take place on Tuesday October 12th and Wednesday October 13th. It is of high importance that your scholar is here on time both days with a charged Chromebook in-hand.

On each day of testing, please help ensure your student is ready to do their best on the assessments by…

  • Getting a good night’s sleep
  • Eating a healthy breakfast
  • Avoiding scheduling doctor’s appointments on testing days
  • Bringing their fully charged, school-issued Chromebook to school each day for testing. 

**Students who are absent or are without the proper tech may be required to join make-up testing after school. So please ensure your scholar is on time and your scholar’s Chromebook is plugged in each night. 

Fall Family Conferences

Our teachers are using time this week to conference virtually on either Monday or Thursday from 4- 7pm with families based on the team’s recommendations.   All other families will receive a call or email from their child’s Social and Emotional Learning teacher to provide an update on their Q1 progress. If you are looking for more information please email bvoffice@dpsk12.org

4 day weekend

Scholars will not have school on Friday 10/15 or Monday 10/18. We hope they enjoy their long weekend and look forward to seeing them back on Tuesday 10/19 well rested and ready to start quarter 2 STRONG!
