Thursday Folders, January 16, 2020


School Notes 

Smartwatches that have the ability to text and/or email must be turned into the office at the beginning of the day.  We have noticed that many students are now wearing them.

Over the Holiday break, DPS’s Technology department upgraded Asbury’s security system and installed a new doorbell/camera at the courtyard office door. However, it has now been moved to the “Front” door on Asbury Ave. (Where the buses pick up).  This is where parents will ring to pick up students from Discovery Link.
