FAQs for DVES Parents - Coronavirus Pandemic

April 3, 2020

Can we add a section for FAQs

What if I do not have internet access or my internet access has been interrupted?

For those parents who do not have access to the internet, we will create a packet of materials that closely mirrors the online instruction.  These packets will be distributed on Monday in front of the school. Pick up times will be 7:00-8:00 AM, 11:30 AM-12:30 PM, and 5:00PM-6:00 PM. When you drive up, please display a piece of paper noting the grade level packets that you need.  He/she will then bring those packets around to the passenger side of your car so that we can respect the 6-foot guideline. 

Will we be able to check-out library books during the school closure?

Mrs. Lieber is working to open up our “Roadside library” book checkout system starting on April 10th 8-10 AM.   Please look for future emails providing details about the “Roadside Library.”

Will refunds be issued for field trips, after school camps, Talent Show, etc.? 

We will issue refunds for missed field trips, the talent show, and after-school programs (sponsored by teachers) toward the end of the school year.   There are a number of issues that the bookkeepers are currently taking care of that take precedence, but refunds will be taken care of closer to May-June.  

Will yearbooks be issued this year?

Yearbooks will still be given out when they arrive.  Please look for future emails providing details for yearbook pick up.  

What is the status of fifth grade course selection?

Bumpus will be sending out the 6th grade course selection sheet.  Please be looking for this. This might answer many of the questions you have about next year.   

My fifth grader would like to complete his/her Passport?  Will they be given the opportunity?

Yes, if your child has been working on the 7 habits passport but were not quite finished please encourage them to email Dr. Richardson, he will work with them in completing their tasks.
