Dear DVC Students and Families,
Please see this video message from us regarding our plan for providing spaces for students to discuss during these difficult times: Video Message from Erin & Andrew (June 3, 2020)
If you would prefer to read a written transcript of the video message, please click here: Written Message to Students and Families (June 3, 2020)
A synopsis of the action steps explained in the video and written message is as follows:
- We will be offering affinity groups for students on Thursday. Students can sign up for those at this link: Affinity Group Sign Up
- We request student participation in grade-level council discussions on Friday.
- We will be exempting students from all POLs on Friday, with the option to reschedule without penalty and only if desired by the student.
And most importantly: To our entire DVC community, the combination of a global pandemic and a national emergency is unprecedented. Though our response to all of this has not been perfect, we want you to know that we care tremendously about the health and well-being of our students, staff, and families. We strive to always do better, and we want you to know that nothing – no project, no POL, no assignment, no deadline – is more important than your life.
Erin & Andrew
