Good afternoon, I apologize for the late notification, but I just received information that the Driver on route 1 will not be able to work tomorrow.

Good Afternoon, Route #1, went on a field trip today and they are on the way back but the estimate arrival time to the school is at 4:30pm. If you can pick up your students at 3:30pm that would be great. If not your student route will be delayed by 1 hour.

Spotlight on DCP-HW’s very own Mrs Chapmen! She has been a great role model to not only her colleagues, but to all the young women she’s encountered. She and her daughter have written a book called “Stop Calling Me Weird” which motivates children to embrace who they are and to ensure inclusiveness. Kudos to you Mrs. Chapman and thank you

DCP-HW really showed out with the battle of the apparel. Today it was Nike vs. Adidas. Even though the staff showed their full support for Adidas. The students showed that the love of Nike was in the house. I’m sure Run Dmc would have been pleased with all the adidas love. Great job DCP

We’re updating our masking policy, effective April 25, 2022, Distinctive Schools (DS) Michigan schools will implement a mask optional policy. While this means masks will no longer be required inside school buildings, they will still be highly recommended. Temporary masking may be required upon return to school for positive individuals or others under the local health department guidelines. As always, if your child feels sick, stay home.
