Hello parents, as part of the DUS plan for remote learning teachers will be calling your students to connect and get information to you. In this, you may get a call from a "Restricted" number. Please accept as this may be your teacher trying to connect.
All Pathfinder and DUHS students assigned to an online course in Edmentum can continue working on your coursework. Pathfinders has a waiver so our online work continues to count toward your graduation requirements. Keep working! If you have any questions or need assistance, use email or the messaging program in Edmentum.
We want to thank the community for your support of the efforts of the DUS staff providing learning packets and the "meet-up and eat-up" program. In these challenging times let's continue keeping a strong and healthy mindset, supporting our neighbors, and treasuring our families.
March 16, 2020 Update from Dowagiac Union Schools We are still getting mixed messages from the state regarding if schools are required to move spring break. Due to the confusion, we have made the decision to declare that spring break will stay as our calendar shows. Therefore, DUS spring break will begin Friday, April 3 and last until Sunday, April 12. We are planning and hoping that students can return to school on Monday, April 13. If the Governor or Legislators were to mandate that schools must change spring break or face significant consequences, we will cross that bridge at that time. We wish you good health and safety in these uncertain times. #Chieftains United!!
Students will still be able to work in Edmentum from home. Please reach out to teachers via email or Edmentum to request assignments to be unlocked. If you have any questions email Mrs. Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org
