   FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK


Dear DHS Family,

              We are almost down to the home stretch, but there is still much work left to be done in the 2021-2022 school term. Prom and spring break are behind us. A special thanks to Mrs. Cook and the prom committee for helping to create a memorable experience for our students. Students received their last progress report for this school year on this past Tuesday, so everyone should be well aware of where they stand in each of their classes.

Parents, End-of-Course testing will begin on Tuesday, May 3rd and ends on Friday, May 20th. Our guidance department will send out the testing schedule to our English II, Algebra I, Biology I, and US History EOC students and teachers. As always, please encourage your students to do their very best as these scores are a reflection on the entire school. We want our students to show proficiency in the course material they have been taught throughout the year and during this semester.

Parents of Seniors, DHS is partnering with colleges and universities across South Carolina to come out and recruit our students. We are proud to announce that two of our seniors have received a full ride to Clemson University, and there are many more scholarships available for our students to attend other colleges and universities. Please encourage your children to take advantage of these great opportunities to further their education.

At Dillon High School, we are working hard to create a culture where students value their education. We want them to become future leaders who will give back to their community by creating innovative programs and opportunities for other young people.

As we move closer to the last few weeks of school, let’s continue to focus on the safety and well-being of our students and staff. Have a great and restful weekend ahead!

Sincerely,

 Timothy Gibbs, Principal

STUDENT HANDBOOK

Retake Policy

There is no reason for any student at Dillon High School to fail.

Students are allowed a total of 5 retakes each nine weeks. Students and    teachers are responsible for arranging    suitable times for retakes.
Parent Resource Center

DHS now has a resource center available to all parents. Please call Ms. Cynthia Williams at 774-1230 ext. 226 for more  information

 

VERY IMPORTANT...PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGES!!!

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

District policy is as follows:

The school year consists of 180 school days.  Attendance is the presence of a student on days when school is in session.  Students may be counted present only when they are actually at school, on homebound instruction, or are present at a school activity which is authorized by the school.  This may include field trips, athletic contests, academic contests, music festivals, student conventions and similar activities.

Students must have 120 hours of seat time to earn a Carnegie unit (60 hours for a ½ unit).

This limits all absences to 10 days (5 days for a ½ unit). This includes all days missed – excused, unexcused, bereavement, medical, etc.

When students have three (3) consecutive or five (5) total unexcused or unverified absences (by class and/or school day) the school will contact parents and develop a truancy intervention plan (TIP) for improved attendance.  Students under 17 years of age who violate a TIP will be referred to a higher authority for truancy.  Parents will be required to meet with administration to develop plan.

If you are not in class, you are marked absent!

*Only five (5) days can be made up to count toward ATTENDANCE RECOVERY.

 

ATEC STUDENTS
ALL students
will ride the bus to and from ATEC every day. If you are late and miss the bus to ATEC, your parent must sign you in at ATEC. Students of parents choosing not to take them to ATEC due to late arrival will remain in ISS until 3rd block or until students return from ATEC. Driving privileges for students going to ATEC will be at the principal’s discretion.
