DPS Staff and Community:
We join Mayor Hancock in hoping for a quick and peaceful resolution to the situation in Washington, DC. This is an assault on our democracy, and it can be traumatizing for our students, families, and community in many ways. We are here to support our families and our staff through this difficult time.
Counseling support is available through the resources provided below. And we will be providing resources to our schools to help them support and care for their educators and students in the days ahead.
Dwight Jones, Interim Superintendent
Carrie A. Olson, PhD, President, Board of Education
