  • Important News!


    Due to missing school in December for weather, we will be in school on February the 19th, as it is our weather make-up day.  


    Flu Season is here and it is hitting our area hard.  Please make sure that you take precautions to keep the flu from spreading.  Encourage your children to wash their hands at-least 20 seconds, while creating friction with the hands.  This link has more information on hand washing-https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html).  Also, remind them to cover coughs and sneezes thoroughly with the bend of the arm/elbow and to avoid water fountains, which can often be a breeding ground for germs.  If your child has a fever, then please follow proper school procedures by keeping them home until they are fever free and no longer contagious.   If your child is going to be out for a while, then please call the school to get any make-up work for your child.  Please allow 2 days for our faculty and staff to gather things.  


    Congratulations to our Robotics Team

    They placed 4th at the Shelton's BEST competition and competed in the inventational tournament in Auburn!



    Attendence everyday is important.  


    Remember that EVERYDAY counts!

    ALL of our students need to attend school daily and arrive on time.  Each time a student is absent from school he/she misses out on valuable instruction and the absence is also held against the school.  With new attendance regulations in place, DEMS and all other schools will be penalized if our students do not attend daily.  Parents, it is critical that you have your child/children in school everyday!
