LICE – We once again have several cases of lice at school. Lice are common in all schools this time of year and there is no reason for shame. Parental cooperation is crucial in effectively eradicating this small epidemic. The school nurse will check students for lice, and a student will be able to come back to school once there are no more lice/nits on the student and has been cleared by our school nurse. Please help us by sending your child back to school once you have gotten treated the problem, and please understand that the measures we take are to ensure the well-being of our students. 

PRESENTATION FOR PARENTS - We cordially invite all DS school parents to attend a presentation that will be given by the Lic. Manuel Morales on the topic “The Four Types of Parents”. This presentation will take place on Thursday, March 10, at 12:00 p.m., in the Conference Room. The school will be providing some refreshments. We hope you will be able to attend!
