Deer Park Jr/Sr High School Wildcat Weekly October 18th, 2020

Jr./Sr. High School

Start of the 2nd Quarter

Welcome to the start of the 2nd Quarter!  This first quarter was certainly the most unique start to a school year that I could have imagined.  We want to thank our families for working with us to help our students, and we look forward to continuing successes in the second quarter.

A few scheduling items to keep in mind for the second quarter, as these are different than previous years:

  • October 29th - October 30th: Virtual Meeting Conferences (see information below)
  • November 3rd: No In-Person Classes at Deer Park Jr/Sr High School (Election Day/Remote Learning Day)
  • December 18th: No School for Students (In the past, this would have be an early release day after exams)

Have a great week!

Principal, Deer Park Jr/Sr High School
