6th Grade Orientation - Only 6th Grade Parents & Students

After much thought and consideration, we have decided to still host a 6th Grade Orientation. However, it will look different than previous years. Please view the following guidelines below: 
 
  • Only the Parents/Guardians and the student are allowed to attend. 
  • Parents/Guardians and the student will be screened and their temperature will be taken before entering the building. 
  • We encourage everyone to wear a mask and practice social distancing while on DMS campus. 
  • Parents/Guardians will need to view their child’s schedule on Skyward BEFORE coming to 6th grade Orientation. We will provide a map of the school to help you navigate through to your new teachers. 
  • If you have not registered your student online, there will be computer access to do so before leaving. (All of this can be completed online at home.) 
6th Grade Orientation will begin at 3:00pm and last until 8:00pm on July 28th.. Students with the last name starting with A-L are urged to come between the hours of 3:00pm - 5:00pm. Students with the last name starting with M-Z are urged to come between the hours of 5:00pm - 8:00pm. A translator will be present, if needed. 
 
Note: 6th Grade Orientation is NOT MANDATORY. If you do not feel comfortable coming, your child will not be penalized. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call our office at (615)597-7987.
