Good Day Dover School Community, We will return to in-person instruction for all students K-12 starting on Thursday, January 6th. 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.

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.
