Hello Chieftain families,

This is just a friendly reminder the building will be open for student drop off at 7:20 am. Please have your child bring their fully charged school issued Chromebook to school. They may also bring a water bottle as well as a mask from home. FYI-Students will be given 2 cloth masks on Monday.

Finally, backpacks can be used to carry belongings to and from school. However, they will need to be kept in lockers during the day, as students will carry their supplies to and from their classes.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone.

Thank you,

Dr. Wightman

Hello Chieftain Families,

For your convenience, a list of suggested/recommended grade level supplies can be viewed by visiting our building website (Go to the “Menu” tab and select “Supply List”).

Although the items on this list are not required, it is being provided for those families who would like to know what materials their child will be using in their classes. FYI-Teachers will also provide more information to students about other items they recommend, specific to their courses, when we return to school the week of October 12th.

We are looking forward to educating your children.

Thank you,

Dr. Wightman

Good morning students and families,

If you are experiencing login issues with Schoology, please check your student email account for a message from your next hour teacher. They will send you an invite to a Google Meet along with their class code to join.

Thank you for being persistent.

Hello Chieftain families,
We will be having Parent Teacher Conferences at DMS on Wednesday, October 7th (5-8 PM) and Thursday, October 8th (12-3 PM).
The format for this year’s conferences will be different from previous years as you will have the choice of conducting them via telephone or virtually (through Google Meet).
For your convenience, you may call the Middle School Office (269) 782-4440 to schedule an appointment to meet with your son’s or daughter’s teachers. You may also contact your child’s teachers directly (through email) to set up a time.
Finally, we will have Spanish speaking faculty available to assist our families who need this support.
We are looking forward to seeing you.
