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.
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.
Here is our very first read along brought to you by Mrs. Daiga! She will be reading "There's Lots that I Can Do!" Look out for more coming soon! https://youtu.be/lsDbN6wXi2E
We have made our learning packets available online, the link is below. You can also pick up a hard copy at the building your child attends this Wednesday through Friday (3/18/20 -3/20/20) from 8 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. http://bit.ly/DUSlearning
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!!

Parents - as many of you know, Governor Whitmer made an announcement last night declaring the closure of ALL K-12 public schools beginning on March 16 and going through April 5th. We WILL be closed per her proclamation. We are working to get more information out to you.
