DENTAL EXAM REMINDER FOR KDG., 2ND, 6TH & 9TH GRADES https://www.dps170.org/article/443487
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I share news of the death of an 8th grade student at Reagan Middle School and a freshman student at Dixon High School as a result of a car accident on Saturday. We are deeply saddened by this loss and extend our heartfelt condolences to their families. We know that a student’s passing is a difficult experience for family, friends, staff, and community. The District will have counselors on hand this week at all buildings to support DPS #170 students and staff. Please feel free to contact our school counselors if you need help.
We hope everyone has a restful spring break. We look forward to starting up again on Tuesday, April 6th. #gopurple
