Thank you so much to everyone who supported our BE THE GOOD t-shirt sale! Because of your support, as well as donations from Renny's and Fresco 22, we were able to donate $1591 to Maria Ferrari's children's hospital in Poughkeepsie! February is Random Acts of Kindness month. In honor of this, we would like for everyone to wear their BE THE GOOD t-shirt tomorrow, February 1st.
On behalf of the Dover community, we are so proud to be presenting Maria Ferrari Children's Hospital in Poughkeepsie with a check for $1591.00! This would not have been possible without the generous donations from Renny's, Fresco 22 and the many members of the community who supported our BE THE GOOD t-shirt sales. We look forward to making another donation to the children's hospital after the Spring Fest Color Run in May (more details to come!).

A few reminders; if your child is not feeling well or has any covid-like symptoms, please do not send the student to school and contact your child’s school. We are distributing the home test-kits until 6:30 tonight in front of the high school main entrance. Reminder, you can pick up one kit per enrolled student.
If your child tests positive for COVID or is symptomatic, please email the nurses at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your child's full name, grade, and date of symptoms or positive test.

Due to the staffing-impact the pandemic has had on our operations and system, we will need to be remote for grades 3-12 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Wingdale Elementary School, grades K-2, will be LIVE and in-person all week. The plan is to assess and determine if we can resume in-person instruction for grades 3-12 starting Thursday. We will communicate by Wednesday any updates and/or important information to be aware of. All staff/faculty check school email for additional information. Please be safe, communicate with your teachers, and get back with any questions. Thank you.
We are looking forward to welcoming students and staff back on Monday 1/3! Have a happy and healthy new year!
