Message - Superintendent Thomas Tucker

Superintendent Thomas Tucker recommended to the School Board DCSD begin the school year implementing a hybrid learning model. It is a blend of in-person learning at school with independent learning and live online instruction (eLearning) at home. The Board voted unanimously to begin the 2020-2021 school year implementing this hybrid learning model with an allowance for families to select a 100% eLearning option for their child.

Reading Resources and Technology Apps

As a parent, I’m always looking for reading resources. When your nights are busy, it’s a great time to view a story online. An actor from the actor’s guild reads a story out loud.  

After your child has finished reading a fantastic book, please encourage them to write a summary and review. They can read other students who wrote about their favorite novels.
