DES families, 

 As of this news, most of our students are back in person. Thank you for the trust and confidence you have placed in us to hold school safely this year. We appreciate you working with us and continuing to collaborate so our students can be in class to learn and our teacher can teach. These small steps toward "normalcy" with the start the 4th quarter have been hugely positive for all of us! 

As a reminder, we do have school 5 days beginning with this week. So students will come to school this Friday, March 26. With the elimination of the Google Meeting lessons on Friday, we are collecting Chromebooks and Wi-Fi devices. If you have not returned a rented device, please send it with your student this week. Our dismissal will continue to be at 1PM through the rest of the semester. 

Looking forward, we do have a couple of holidays coming up, on Friday, April 2nd and Monday, April 5th for an Easter Break. If you have not returned your child's report card signed, please send it this week. Also reach out to your teachers with any questions you may have. Finally the community swim team asked to share information. You can find the details and how to get signed up for this summer event here Du Quoin Swimming Indians

With Papoose Pride, 

Diana Rea, Principal
