Dear Distinctive College Prep Families,
Please join Distinctive Schools, in partnership with the Distinctive College Prep Board of Directors, to celebrate the opening of Distinctive College Prep (DCP) - Harper Woods! In honor of our opening, we are having a celebratory ribbon cutting on Wednesday, October 4 at 8:30 am.
The DCP - Harper Woods Ribbon Cutting Ceremony represents an important milestone, not only for Distinctive Schools, but to celebrate the collaborative efforts with the Detroit-area community in building a great school that will positively impact education.
We hope you can join us for this joyous occasion! A light breakfast will be provided at 8:30 am, the ceremony will begin at 9:00 am, and school tours will take place immediately following.
Early Dismissal Updates
On both Tuesday, September 5th and Wednesday, September 6th, we will dismiss early at 1:00 pm. Please make arrangements for these early dismissals.
If your child qualifies for free and reduced lunch, or if you anticipate qualifying for free and reduced lunch, food will be available for your child on Tuesday. Until all of the applications have been received and processed, we’ll work together to make sure our students have good, healthy lunch options right from the start. If you are unsure about your status, feel free to send your child with a brown-bag lunch for the first week of school.
Bus routes- Because we continue to receive students every day, bus routes are still being finalized. As soon as we have our final bus routes, we will contact you with your child’s routing information, so please be sure to check your email periodically throughout the weekend. We’ll also be sure to post information on our Facebook page.
If your child walks home from school, please be certain to send a note with your child on Tuesday, so we know it’s ok to allow them to walk from Distinctive College Prep - Harper Woods.
Before/After School Care Updates
We are pleased to share that we will be providing before and after school “latch key” programming for our students. In order to participate in this opportunity, students must be registered, and registration materials can be completed and submitted to our main office. Our “latch key” programming will start on Monday, September 11th.
We are thrilled to share that we have met our enrollment targets, but we still have a few seats available for new students. Please help us share the word about Distinctive College Prep - Harper Woods by spreading the word with your friends and family! If you have questions, please visit www.dcpharperwoods.org.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, September 5th.
Have an Excellent Weekend!
