Freshmen

Attention freshmen Families, information about 9th Grade Academy has been sent out via email and posted at https://east.dpsk12.org/news/2020/11/updated-9th-grade-academy/. For students who have selected the “in-person/hybrid” learning option, you should pay close attention to the schedule for sessions based on the student’s last name. For those who have chosen the “100% virtual” option, more information will be coming soon. Sessions for in-person hybrid students will begin on Monday, November 9th, again based on student last name.

Counseling

East High School is doing our best to inform and support students through a course completion process for the course(s) they did not complete last Spring (Semester Two), when we transitioned to remote learning in March. More information regarding Course Completion can be found at https://east.dpsk12.org/news/2020/11/course-completion-opportunities-available-for-semester-two-2020/ and If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Assistant Principal Terita Walker at terita_walker@dpsk12.org, or your students’ counselor.

Seniors

Reminder to seniors that they MUST request their Nov. 15th transcripts for college immediately through their counselor’s google form that can be found on the East Website.  Ideally This should be done two weeks in advance from the deadline, so please make sure your seniors take care of this ASAP.
