Welcome to the Main Office!
The main office is open from 8:50 am until 4:20 pm. If you are planning to visit the school, appointments are preferred, as staff may not be available, especially during student arrival and dismissal. Please make sure you bring your identification with you to school. For safety and security reasons, everyone on campus at DHMS must have proper identification visible at all times. Please be prepared to show a valid picture identification card. Computerized IDs will be made for all visitors. This badge must be worn while on the school campus. All information is secure and NOT shared with any other parties. Thank you for helping to keep our school and campus safe.
CHECK OUT PROCEDURES
Parents requesting early check-out of their student can write a note and the student can go to their grade level office, that morning to get a Permit to Leave slip. This alleviates any wait time for you when you come to pick up your student. If you call or come in, please understand that we do need time to get your student for you. Please allow at least 30 minutes. This will give the school the opportunity to look up the student’s schedule and send for them to meet you in the front office. Parents, it is important that we check the driver’s license of anyone picking up your student early from school. This will be done to ensure the safety of your child. After 3:45 pm there will be no permission to leave slips written, due to the time constraints on using the proper method of getting your child from class.
STUDENT DELIVERY OF FLOWERS, BALLOONS, ETC.
With safety in mind, the school cannot accept any type of flower arrangement, stuffed animals, balloon bouquet, or balloon arrangements for delivery to students. Many times these are in containers that are breakable. In addition, they cause a disruption and in some cases, an obstruction in the classroom. Please do not send any deliveries to students who are in school. They will be refused and returned to the sender. Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
