A Message from the Principal
Dear DPM Families,

I would like to make you aware of an important change to the school day hours. Last year, as we monitored increased traffic in Lake Forest and bus arrival times, we found that not all of our Deer Path buses were consistently arriving at school on time. 

Beginning this school year, we have made a 10 minute adjustment to the start and end of the Deer Path school day to address this concern. Our bus routes run back-to-back with our elementary schools, so by leaving the elementary school hours the same and changing the Deer Path hours slightly, we allow more time to ensure that DPM bus riders arrive at school in a consistent and timely manner. 

The DPM school day will now run from 8:45am-3:45pm .

As we get closer to the start of the school year we will alert you when individual bus routes and times will be available.

We look forward to seeing you at the Walk Through on Tuesday, August 27 from 9:30-11am and welcoming you back to school on Wednesday, August 28.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
