Dear DPS Community:
Every year at this time, I’m counting down the days until the first day of school. Never has that countdown come with more enthusiasm and excitement than this year. We’ll be opening our doors for what we hope and expect to be a full year of in-person learning, with the strong health safeguards we have in place. And we’ll be opening our arms to our students–to reconnect, to check in with each other, and to get to work on a great year of academic progress.
The DPS community is so invested in its children and their success. That has come through loud and clear to me during the Listening and Learning To I’ve been on since I arrived in July.
My family has been extended such a warm welcome by a wonderful community. Thank you. I can’t wait to see our scholars and families at our schools, starting on Monday. And I’m so looking forward to extending to you a warm and joyful welcome to the new school year, as I see you on our campuses and in the community.
Dr. Alex Marrero
