  • DMS Yearbook Distribution for 2019-2020

    Yearbooks are being delivered next week and we will offer two drive-through pick up opportunities at DMS for you to receive your yearbook.  You will need to enter our new entrance at the intersection of North Donahue and Cary Drive.  Drive up to the front doors of the new building, and you will see a staff member who will hand you the yearbook through your car window.

    Here are the pickup days and times next week:

    • Friday, August 7th from 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
    • Sunday, August 9th from 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

    Please make EVERY effort to attend the pickup time to alleviate the need to transport the books across town to another school location.
