Our contractor has performed additional tests of the water systems in our schools to check chlorine levels. The systems have regained their balance in the elementary school buildings and the water filling stations have been turned back on.

The water system at Deer Path is not quite at the desired levels. Again, they have found no overall concern but, as a precaution, are recommending that the water bottle filling stations at DPM not be used for the remainder of this week. Now that we will have more people in the building, the system should re-regulate itself.

We are asking that DPM staff and students bring filled, non-aerosol water bottles from home through Friday, October 2.  We will also have bottled water on hand during the week for those who need it.

We will keep you informed of any updates. Thank you!

This year, with support from the DPM APT, Community Service Day has been reimagined for 8th graders to comply with COVID-19 guidelines. On October 8 (rain date October 9) students will individually participate in a one mile walk during their remote Wellness class in support of Paws for Patrick. Students will be collecting donations, and will be encouraged to walk the one mile with their dog or other pet.

DPM and the APT would like to thank The Rotary Club for underwriting the cost to provide each 8th grader with a T-shirt that contains a student-designed logo to wear while they complete the one-mile walk. Students are encouraged to take a picture of themselves in their T-shirts and submit to their gym teacher as proof of participation. Parents who would like to share these pictures are invited to post them to social media with the hashtag #DPM2021.
