Dear DVC Parents and Guardians,
This message is to inform you that there will be a service dog in our school assisting one of our students. This service dog is a trained companion for the student and is able to assist him/her in many of the daily routines while learning at school.
This certified service dog is trained and the student’s right to have a certified service dog is protected under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), and/or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) and therefore can be with the handler in all aspects of his/her education.
There will be an introduction at the school to inform students how a service animal will fit into daily school routines. All students will be informed as to proper procedures around the animal because the animal is not a pet but a certified working service dog or therapy animal while at school.
We anticipate the service dog will be a benefit to the student’s learning and we look forward to this new addition to our school community.
Thank you for your understanding and support. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office.
