Hi Seniors!

 

The yearbook staff needs your senior photos by November 13th! If you haven't taken yours yet, let me know. If you need someone to take your senior photos, we have some awesome yearbook students who would do it for you. 

 

If you would like your baby photo in the yearbook as well, it is due to me by November 13th, and $10 to the office

 

Email/scan it to me, nhayes@davenportsd.org

 

DHS students and families, you can preorder/order pictures online at this website: www.leosphotography.com using the code FAL192006.  You can pre-order anytime, and have up to 5 days after picture day (Oct. 27th) to place your orders without incurring a late/shipping fee!!  After the 5-day grace period, Leo’s still accepts orders all year long, but there is a $10.00 fee added on to the order, and Leo’s then ships the photos directly to you, the customer, instead of the school.

 

FFA sign-up forms and dues need to be paid/turned in by Nov. 1, 2020

 

Attention Parents/Guardians of High School prospective student-athletes. The WIAA and the Department of Health have given the Davenport School District the go ahead to move forward and practice in pods. Since we have approximately 48 days to do this, we are breaking it up into three sessions of 16 days. This is great news to rejoin our student-athletes with their coaches. This time is basically replacing the contact time during the summer offered to coaches and student-athletes.

The following are the dates and the sports student-athletes can choose from:

Session 1:            Softball/Baseball/XC/Track/Tennis/Golf                 October 5th – October 22nd

Session 2:            Volleyball/Soccer/Football                                           October 23rd – November 10th

Session 3:            Basketball/Wrestling                                                      November 11th – November 30th

 

During this practice time, coaches are required to following strict guidelines set forth by WIAA and the DOH. Athletes cannot have contact with each other and must fill out all paperwork before participating during their first session.  Required paperwork includes:

1)      COVID – 19 Screening Form

2)      Student/Parent Concussion and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Form

3)      Coaches will give each student-athlete a Sports Physical Form, however, if your child participated in a sport last school season you will be allowed to participate this season

 

Coaches are required to do the following every day:

1)      Follow Sport Specific Guidelines set forth from WIAA

2)      Follow Guidance for opening up HS Athletics and Activities

3)      Record and keep daily records of student-athlete’s temperature

4)      Adhere to all guidelines set forth in sport specific NFHS steps

 

Lincoln County is currently in Phase 3. We will adhere to all guidelines accordingly. However, the Covid-19 measurement is a fluid variable. We may receive more strict guidelines if our numbers go up or less strict guidelines if our numbers go down. If we are able to play a season at all it will not look like a season we are all used to. Our goal is to provide experiences for kids they so desperately need at this time in their lives. We ask all families of prospective student-athletes to practice safe behavior and protect those most impacted by this virus.

 

The WIAA has publicly announced a modified season including a possible state tournament for each sport. This publication is subject to change at any time. We are waiting to hear from and get the go ahead from all three entities; the WIAA, the Governor’s Office, and the Department of Health.

 

·         At this point, all offices are open regular hours 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM. We STRONGLY encourage parents/students call ahead if appointments are needed to see either the superintendent/principals/teachers/counselors.

·         Masks will be required at ALL times for students/staff/visitors while in the building.

·         Temperature checks will be taken for ALL visitors at the door before entering the building.

·         Students should NOT arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before class is scheduled to start.

·         If you need to drop off/pick up your students please remain in your vehicle and call the office.  We will send your student out to you.

·         If you are dropping off items for your student please ring the door bell and we will come retrieve the item from you at the door.

·         Please do not drop off NON-ESSENTIAL ITEMS (Coffee, drinks, make-up, etc.) to your student during school hours.

·         Lockers WILL NOT be in use for 6th- 12th grade during this school year (2020-21).

·         Visitors (student’s friends, former students, cousins, etc.) WILL NOT be allowed in the building during school hours.

 

Please send all paperwork to the office. We are asking that families hold off on ASB fees at this time as we currently do not have sports occurring. ALL students will receive free breakfast/lunch through December. There is NO NEED to send lunch money with your student until December!! We ask that you still fill out the free and reduced lunch form if your family qualifies so when the free program runs out in December we can continue your food program without unnecessary fees.
