A Message from Principal Joyner
Dear Parents and Guardians,

Intent to Return Form - If you have not already, please complete this student intent to return form.

Free and Reduced Lunch Form – If you have not already, please complete the free and reduced lunch form.


DCSD Re-Entry Plan – Superintendent Watson-Harris and the DCSD BOE continue to use community spread data from the GA Department of Public Health to guide the re-entry plan. We are currently in Phase I of re-entry and will move into Phase II when the DeKalb County “Cases per 100k (last 2 weeks)” is < 100. Today’s data is 123/100,000. You may access up to date data here: GA DPH

 
 
  • Superintendent Watson-Harris and the DCSD BOE will continue to monitor and review this data and the re-entry plan. The next DCSD BOE meeting is November 9, 2020.
 
I appreciate your continued patience as we wait for the CV19 numbers to decrease so we may move forward with the re-entry plan.
 
Please continue to stay safe and healthy – wear a mask, wash hands, keep distance, and no large gatherings.
 
Mark Joyner,
Principal
Greetings DHHS families,

AP exam registration has started and most students have already registered. Please see the information regarding our registration process below.

1. Students who are currently enrolled in year-long and Fall Semester-only AP courses need to register through CollegeBoard using the join code provided by their teachers. The deadline is October 30th. If students have not received the join code, they may contact Ms. Ross or Mr. Anderson. This is the only method to register for an exam.

2. Registration for Spring-Only Courses will take place at the start of second semester. The deadline will be announced at a later date.

3. Student who are interested in taking an AP Exam, but are not taking the course need to contact Ms. Ross or Mr. Anderson. The deadline is October 30th.

4. There is a $40 (per exam) late fee for registrations that take place after the deadline. This fee is set by CollegeBoard and cannot be waived (again, this does not apply to students who take Spring Semester courses).

5. CollegeBoard does not accept exam payments. Information regarding payments for exams will come at a later date.

For questions and concerns, please contact: Ms. Tamara Ross or Mr. John Anderson
