From DHS Administration
Hi Students and Families,
We understand how important events at our school are to our students and their families. We want to assure you that we are doing the best we can to keep you informed if and when changes are made. We ask for your patience, flexibility, and support during this time. We are in this with you and know we will get through it together.
At this moment, we are waiting for more direction from state and federal agencies about current shelter in place orders to determine what will happen with regards to these year-ending events. Absent of state assistance, our District is working with our neighboring districts to develop a common plan for end of the year decisions.
Below are updates we can share at this moment:
Refunds for Junior Prom Tickets
Junior Prom has been canceled and everyone who purchased a ticket will be receiving a refund. We heard that some families are asking about donating their ticket purchase. That is very kind of them. We ask that every student fill out this form so we know if we should issue a refund or consider it a donation.
All refunds will be in the form of a check from Dublin High School. If someone paid by check, the refund will go to the person who wrote the check. If someone paid by cash or credit card, the refund will go to the student's emergency contact #1.
Please contact Ms. Velez at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question regarding your refund.

DHS Staff says hello to the students
Counseling & Career Center News
Greetings from Mrs Nobida in the DHS College and Career Center!
If you are applying for scholarships PLEASE carefully follow the instructions on the application on where to turn them in. Many need to be mailed in, so pay close attention to the due dates. If by mail, allow at least two to three business days to get there in time!
A small portion of the scholarships state that they need to be turned into the career center or counseling. Please do not come to campus as we are closed. Instead, please do one of the following:
1) Scan and email to me - please state in the subject line what scholarship you are applying for
2) If you do not have a scanner, please take a clear photo and email it to me. If I cannot read the application via photo, I will let you know and we can find another way for you to get it to me. When emailing, please state in the subject line what scholarship you are applying for
3) If neither of the above works for you, please email me and I will figure out another way for you to get the application to me! I am here to help!
My email is: email@example.com
A couple of tips:
- Many of the scholarships ask for a transcript. You can download that from your portal. If you have questions, please contact me.
- If the application asks you what college you will be attending, many of you will not know that information yet. I recommend listing the colleges you were accepted to and the ones that you are still waiting to hear back from.
Thank you and please, do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. Please check back to my scholarship page for updated information. I try to update at least once a week! https://www.dublin.k12.ca.us/Page/12982

The Daily Bulletin link has been added to the Dublin High School website (www.dublin.k12.ca.us/dhs). This is a great tool to use when your student has missed school and needs to know what is happening on campus OR for you parents who want to stay in "the know." The Daily Bulletin is the morning announcement which reminds students of important deadlines, club meetings, and events that are coming up. You can find the link on the front page, right side of the Dublin High School website (see picture)..
