Intent to Return to F2F Survey & COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies Reminder
Intent to Return F2F April 29th - Students and families who choose to opt-in to Face2Face instruction starting April 29, 2021 need to complete this survey

Mr. Joyner initially sent this survey out on March 31. Parents only need to complete this survey ONCE, so if if you completed the first request, you do not need to resubmit. Deadline to declare your child is returning to F2F instruction - Wednesday, April 21.

Reminders for our current F2F students - we will continue to implement our Covid 19 mitigation strategies

1. always properly wear a mask
2. keep social distance (at least 6 feet) when able
3. wash and sanitize your hands throughout the school day
4. disinfect personal work spaces throughout the school day

Parents - please keep your students home from school if they are running a temperature or show ANY signs of illness - cough, congestion, sore throat, trouble breathing, etc. 

It is everyone's responsibility to help maintain the health safety of all students, faculty and staff!
It's time to nominate a special teacher who has made a difference in students' lives for the DRUID HILLS HIGH SCHOOL 2021 TEACHER OF EXCELLENCE AWARD!

The selected teacher will receive $500 in cash, their name on the school marquee, and a certificate of appreciation.

All nominated teachers will receive recognition, so this is an excellent way to spread the word about our amazing faculty and give teachers the praise they deserve.
 
We encourage all students and parents to send us nominations. Please let us know one or more specific ways in which your nominee demonstrates his or her excellence in the classroom and dedication to our students. All nominations will be reviewed by the PTO Executive Board and will take into account the description(s) of the teacher's excellence and the number of nominations, among other factors.
 
Thank you for helping us with this selection!
 
Deadline for submissions: THIS Friday, April 23rd
