First Day of School
First day of school is Friday, August 10. This is a half day (noon dismissal). Locker assignments and a modified scheduled will be followed. This is not an "optional" day. Although, it is a half day, there will be information, instruction and orientation for both new and returning students that is critical to the successful start of the school year.
Just a reminder to order/buy your uniform needs before the first day of school. Very little changes have been made to our uniform policy. Here are the highlights of the minor changes:
- On chapel Plaid skirts (or plaid Skorts may be worn by middle school) are required on chapel days. Uniform skirts can be purchase from Uniform Source.
- If worn, socks, knee highs, tights or leggings must be solid navy, white, gray or black. No multicolored or patterns will be allowed on uniform days.
- On chapel days, dress shoes are required. No Toms or canvas-type shoes are appropriate for chapel day.
- Boots will be allowed only during cold weather months as determined by the administration.
Please purchase your uniform embroidered Polo shirts, school tie, and plaid skirts at Uniform Source on Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw. In addition to these required uniform pieces, Uniform Source has other DCS logo items that are optional.

Daily Schedule & Chapel
Our daily schedule has been adjusted for the 2012-2013 school year. Notably, chapel time has been moved to Wednesday, first thing in the morning (8 am). Attendance, of course, is required. Parents are welcome to join us every (or any) Wednesday as we start out the school day with worship and a focus on God's word.
As you come onto campus, you will notice that some curbs around the drop off/pick up areas are painted RED.
The "Red Zones" are designated emergency vehicle lanes to provide emergency services vehicles immediate access to these properties for the purpose of emergency response.
You may continue using these areas for drop off and pick up of your student. However, please do not park or leave your vehicle unattended for any reason in these designated areas. Cobb County police have the responsibility to enforce this ordinance and will issue citations for violations.
