Important Update: In-Person Learning Start Dates

Dear Families,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. I am writing to you today with an important update on the start of school.

As you know, for months we have been preparing to reopen our school buildings so that if COVID-19 infection rates fell low enough in our city, we would be ready to welcome students back to school. And thanks to all of you and everything you have done over the last six months, we are there. The city has seen infection rates hovering around 1% for several weeks, making us the only city in the country able to reopen.

Dewey Graduates

Hello Dewey Graduates,

Diplomas, senior items and refund checks are finally in and ready for distribution. However, due to Covid-19 we must adhere to a strict appointment schedule. In order for you to receive your diploma you must return all electronics, textbooks and sports equipment given to you by the school. You must also have ID to receive your diploma. If you do not or cannot show up for your scheduled time, you must make an appointment by calling the school starting Tuesday, September 15. Walk-ins will be turned away.
