Thank you DCS families for a great start to the school year!  Your support and encouragement are appreciated.  Please continue to pray for our school year as we seek to disciple your students through the vehicle of education.

Absence/Appointment Notification – Parents must notify the school office of any absence (part or full day) or scheduled appointment. Please email or click the “Report an Absence” button on the home page of our website  If your student is late to school, they must sign in through the school office before going to class.  All elementary age students must be accompanied by an adult to sign them in. 

Please follow the below process for picking up a student early:

  • Once on campus, it is preferred that parents remain in their car and call the school office to notify that they have arrived and are ready for pickup. If needed, parents can also park and report to the school office to sign their child out, however, parents are never to go directly to their child’s class.
  • Office personnel will get the student from class and bring them to their parent
  • Students will not be sent to the school office before their ride is on campus.  Often students sent ahead of time spend excessive amounts of time in the office waiting for their ride and missing valuable class time.  Parents should plan accordingly and allow extra time for office personnel to get their student from class. 
  • Students must always be signed in and out through the school office regardless of the reason and the office must always have parental notification regardless of the student’s age/grade.
