See DubRun Information

The DUSD Fifth Annual Wellness Fair and SeeDubRun 5K Color Run/Walk and 10K event is just around the corner, taking place on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at DHS. Held in partnership with Dublin Integrity in Action, this event raises funds for Wellness, Character Ed and Bullying Prevention Programs. On a daily basis, these three areas have an important and significant effect on students having a positive school experience, both academically and behaviorally. With attendance being a major factor in a student's success, a student with wellness, behavioral concerns or who may be fearful of being bullied, needs assistance from these programs we provide in support of our families. Registration information is here.
