Remember the Troops 2018

During the past 17 years the Dallastown Area High School Volunteer Club has sent items to members of the military stationed away from home during the holidays. This year the tradition continues.

A list of soldiers is currently being compiled by Shannon Werner, Volunteer Club advisor in the high school. If you know of a soldier who will be serving our country overseas during the holiday season, please send his/her name and address to by Friday, September 28th.

Classes are asked to write letters and collect food items (a list will be sent to all who would like to participate) during the month of October.  All items need to be ready for pick up from your schools by Wednesday, October 31st, and will be shipped later that week.
Our hope is that all of the soldiers on our list remember 201 8 with a smile, thanks to the sincerity and generosity of the Dallastown Area School District community. Please partner with us again to Remember the Troops.

Asbestos Notice
Dallastown Area School District has developed an Asbestos Management Plan as required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). 

Every six months the maintenance department inspects and every three years an inspection is conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry's licensed asbestos inspectors of any building constructed before the late 1970s to determine whether the condition of any known or assumed asbestos-containing materials (ACM) has changed. The inspector will make recommendations on managing or removing the ACM.   
The Asbestos Management Plan is available for public review in the Buildings and Grounds Office.
DASD Partners
Dallastown Area School District has collaborated with Market Street Sports Group of Lancaster, PA, with a shared commitment to generate alternative revenue through sponsorship opportunities for the district's extracurricular facilities, primarily the DAEF Turf Campaign.
