Winter Break is here!

Semester 1 is complete! Thank you for the support you have given your students in their learning and growth! Our teachers will be completing the grades and comments for your students tomorrow, and we will mail out the report cards on Saturday morning.
Our staff will not be replying to emails over the break, but if you have any urgent concerns you are welcome to email them to me at
I hope that you all have a restful winter break – we will be excited to welcome the students back for semester 2 on Monday, January 9th!

Winter SAT Prep Course for DVS Students

DVS is once again partnering with PJ Test Prep ( to provide SAT test prep over winter break on a limited, first-come-first-serve basis. You can sign up for the course at

The cost of the course will be $50 and will include 4 classes, a scored take-home test, and a final test review session. The $50 payment can be made at the DVS office.

The classes will be during the last week of winter break, from 10:00-12:30 on Tuesday 1/3-Friday 1/6. The real SAT is on Saturday 1/21, and the deadline to register for that exam is December 21st.

Note: Don’t wait until the deadline to register for the SAT! DVS is a testing center but if it fills up, you’ll have to take the test somewhere else.

Week 16 Schedule

This is our last week of instruction before Presentations of Learning begin! As a reminder, parents are expected to attend their child’s POL, so please confirm your child’s appointment with them and make arrangements to attend.

The deadline for students to submit any work for their classes is this Friday at 4:00pm.
