Drive-Through Collection Parades

  • Drive-Through Collection Parades

    On Tuesday, May 26 & Wednesday, May 27, DHMS will host Drive-Through Collection Parades.  Parade times are separated by grade level and alphabet to keep the line moving.

    Parade Schedule  

    Our car line will be set up for a parade with collection stops along the way; we will only be able to serve families in their cars.  We will not be able to accommodate any walk-up visitors.  All cars will enter the main driveway off of Patricia Avenue and check in at the tent and give our staff your student’s information. 

     Separate collection stops will be designated for:

    • Handing out Awards
    • Textbook and Library Book Collection (inlcuding books from teacher classroom libraries)
    • Athletic and Cheerleading uniforms
    • Orchestra Instruments
    • Hall and Gym Lockers

     To speed the process up, before arriving it would be helpful if students do the following things:

    • Before arriving, have your student bag up textbooks, library books and label the bag with their student name, student number, and grade level
    • Have your student also write down their hall locker number.  Students were consistently told not to share lockers with friends.  If your student shared a locker, they may have to meet up with their friend to get their items back. 
    • Have a paper with student name, grade level, student number, and locker number displayed in windshield
    • Best practice – label all returnable items with student name, grade level, and student number


     The 8th grade parade will also include a free photo op with a professional photographer and an 8th grade gift from the 8th grade teachers. 


    At this time, students who checked out laptops and devices will hold onto their devices until further notice.   Band Instruments and uniforms will have a separate collection on May 28th, From 9:00AM – 3:00PM.  Contact Mr. Urban for more details.



  • Dear DHMS 8th Grade Students and Parents,

    As we found ourselves in unfamiliar territory with the challenges of digital learning, we are elated to see everyone participate in pushing to finish the year on a strong positive note.

    There were many year-end activities on our calendar. As you know, our 8th grade Gradventure trip to Universal was ultimately cancelled due to Covid 19 / CDC guidelines. Although we must wait until we receive our deposit money back before any refunds are administered, we would like to be proactive and get the paperwork in to speed up the process for you.

    Attached is a letter, please click the link below and fill out the bottom of this letter to request a refund for your payment(s) toward the Gradventure trip that was scheduled for May 8, 2020. Complete in full and return via mail or email to chesleyre@pcsb. An announcement will be sent out when we will be able to mail the refund checks to your home. If you do not send in a request, the money will be donated back to the school through our Adopt a School program.

    We will continue to keep all our DHMS families up to speed about special procedures regarding the end of year activities that are now being modified to conform with the state and local guidelines through this unprecedented time.

    Thank you,

    Principal, Michael Vasallo

  • 7th Grade Parents

    Pinellas County Schools officials want to remind parents of seventh-graders to provide their children's schools with documentation that their children have received the Tdap vaccine.

    The Florida Department of Health requires that all students entering seventh grade must receive the Tdap vaccine, which protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). All seventh-grade students need to show proof of Tdap immunization before starting school. This requirement is in addition to other immunization requirements that are grade-appropriate.
    Health care providers should document the Tdap vaccine on the Florida Certificate of Immunization. Parents of seventh-grade students should make sure to bring this form to their children's school before the first day of school. Seventh-graders will not be allowed to attend class if schools do not have this form on file. Many students have already received the Tdap vaccine and simply need to supply proof to their schools. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County provides free vaccines for children. For more information, please call the district's Health Services department at (727) 588-6320.
