Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Today we honor his legacy, and last week students participated in Bystander Intervention Training led by Hollaback!, which helped students and staff feel empowered to do something to help whenever they witness someone being harassed for any reason, whether at school or outside of school. We keep moving forward together, learning and working to make DVC and our community a space that is free from harassment or hate of any kind – one that MLK Jr. would be proud of!
Seminars begin this week! Students can expect to get a printed copy of their new schedule during 3rd period on Tuesday, 1/18 just prior to the start of the first seminar class. Any requests for changes will be accommodated as best as possible, and students will be provided with a link in which to make their requests.
We are thankful to our students for doing a great job keeping their masks covering their mouths and noses throughout the school day. Here are the testing options available at DVC:
- Rapid Antigen Testing (Ongoing): On-site rapid testing for students open from 8:15am-3:45pm daily. Students are not allowed to leave class to test and must use time before school, during lunch, and after school. Students should pre-register here if this is their first time testing at school.
