Whooping Cough Information

Parents and Guardians:

At this time, we have 3 cases of Pertussis (whooping cough) at DVS. Please see attachments from the Department of Public Health.

Pertussis is treated with antibiotics and even if your child is vaccinated, they can become ill because immunity lessens over time.

If your child is coughing, or starts to cough take your student to the doctor and let them know they may have been exposed to pertussis (whooping cough).

Staff Appreciation Week is Almost Here!

Hi DVS Families,

Staff appreciation week begins on Monday, May 6th! We’d love to celebrate the staff by feeding them. I’ve included a spreadsheet for a themed food bar for Monday to Thursday, and we’d love it if you’d sign up to bring something! The non-perishable items can be sent with your students at your earliest convenience. They can let the front office know that it is for Staff Appreciation Week. Our teachers, front office, academic coaches, maintenance staff, and technology team would love to be celebrated in this way! Please let me know if you have any questions, and huge thanks to all the families who have already signed up!
