Candy Leis by Class of 2021
The Class of 2021 is providing candy leis to the Seniors. We will be handing them out to the seniors on the day that they receive their diplomas. We will attach a little card to it that says with love from the Class of 2021. We would love your support if you are up for it. You can Venmo me @Laurel-McMahon your donation.
Our yearbook company contacted me this week to let me know yearbooks will now most likely be shipped the beginning of July. We do not have a specific date yet because the situation is unlike anything they have had to deal with in the past. Typically in the spring, the plant runs full shifts 24 hrs/day to get books ready for shipment. The plant was not only delayed due to the SIP order, but has also been slowed down with production due to a phased reopening, social distancing requirements, cleaning protocols, limits on numbers of employees at the factory for each shift, etc. This has resulted in further delays. As soon as I get a specific date, I will work with admin on a plan for distribution for our graduating seniors. Students currently in grades 9-11 will receive their yearbooks when we return to school in August.
Plus One Digital yearbook - our yearbook company has provided us access to our yearbook digitally. If you purchased a yearbook, you can download the Plus One app and access the yearbook now! See the attached flyer for more info.
Limited Quantities Still Available for Purchase - We still have copies of the yearbook left for purchase. Yearbooks can be purchased online at the DHS Webstore
Moving? If you purchased a yearbook and are moving, we will be sure to get it to you. Please complete this form if you are moving out of the area - https://forms.gle/Y4PW2iRkpmmXjnuVA.

Online Tutoring During Distance Learning
While DHS is doing online learning, all DHS students have access to the HUB Tutors through Google Chats. Students can follow these steps to access tutoring.
1. Go to Google Chats (go to your gmail, click on the apps menu in the upper right hand corner, and choose Chat).
2. Put your cursor in the "Find people, rooms, bots" search bar. When you do, menu options will appear below the search bar. One of those options is Browse.
3. Click on the Browse option. You will see that you have been invited to three DHS Tutoring Chat rooms: DHS Tutoring Math/Science, DHS Tutoring World Language, and DHS Tutoring English/History.
We are actively monitoring these rooms from 9-5 every day, but we also get a message when a student posts a question outside these hours, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We can answer your questions via text chat, or we can initiate a video chat session from within the chat rooms to answer your question face-to-face. We are here to help!
If you or your students have any questions about tutoring, please feel free to email Jean Josey at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Close Up Inauguration 2021 Trip
Dublin High School will be participating in the Close Up Washington DC Presidential Inauguration program during January 2021. Close Up is a nonpartisan and dynamic organization that runs a hands-on civic education program for students nationwide, supported in-part by Congress. The program consists of travel, learning, and fun, all packed into one amazing experience! For an entire week, students will explore monuments and memorials, discuss current issues, engage in debates, meet with members of Congress and make friends with students from across the country! Furthermore, students will witness one of the most exciting DC events, a presidential inauguration, which only takes place every 4 years in Washington. Participating students this year will miss four days of school while on program. Students will receive one half unit of Social Studies credit for participating in Close Up since it is a valuable educational experience.
If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer McCort email@example.com
