Dartmouth remembers the events of September 11, 2001
On Monday, September 11, Dartmouth Middle School invited current and former members of the military, police, firefighters and EMT for breakfast and a moment of reflection for the events that occurred on September 11, 2011. Breakfast was provided by donations from the Dartmouth staff. The Dartmouth band and choir performed some patriotic songs with the highlight of the event occurring when four B-52 bombers flew overhead at the end of the national anthem. Thank you to all the students and staff who provided another wonderful ceremony for our community members.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

We are lucky to serve a diverse student population and we will continue to strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment for all of our students. We understand this is a time of uncertainty for many of our students and their families and we hope Congress will establish a solution for those affected.

New Tardy Policy Effective Monday September 11 (PLEASE READ)

New Tardy Policy
Are you TARDY Today? If a student has 7 tardies with or without a parent note, it is considered excessive. Any student who is tardy to their 1st period class for the 8th time (even with a note!) will earn a 1 Hour On Campus Retention (OCR). Students that accumulate 16 tardies throughout the school year will be assigned a 2 Hour OCR. Students that accumulate 24 tardies will earn a 3 Hour OCR. This pattern will continue for every 8th tardy the student receives. *The exceptions to the tardy policy include; original notes from a medical office, such as a doctor, dentist, orthodontist, etc.
