Jr./Sr. High School

Return to 5-Day a Week, In-Person Learning

Good afternoon,

Tomorrow marks our return to daily in-person education for our students who did not opt for virtual learning this semester.  While last week was a great way to ease back into in-person learning, we're excited to take this next step towards normalcy!  Mask wearing, social-distancing, temperature scans, and regular extra cleaning are still of course part of our routines, and we ask that our families continue to do basic wellness checks each morning before students leave for school.

Thank you for always supporting our school, and we look forward to a great week!


Shane Hartley
Principal, Deer Park Jr/Sr High School 

What's New?

This Friday, January 15th, will be our School Photo Make-Up Day.  For any students who did not receive school photos earlier in the school year, please use the flier (click here) to digitally order picture packages before Friday!  This helps us keep the process as contactless as possible.

  • Please remember that to be counted as present in school, you must be working 5.75 hours per day in Apex or have green progress bars in all classes.  You can see the progress bars on your Apex dashboard.

  • Apex emails "Coaches' Reports" to parents/guardians/coaches every Sunday evening.  Please make sure these are not going to spam or junk mail.  The reports let you know how much time students are spending and how they are progressing.

  • Completing all study guides AS you are learning the material will help you to pass quizzes the first time.  Plus, you can refer to the guides as you are taking quizzes and tests!

  • PE students, please check your email for some tips for getting 100s on PE Explore assignments.
