Jr./Sr. High School

What's New?


A Message from the Administrators

Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School Families:

We are closing in to our Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School students’ first day of school on Tuesday August 17 and we couldn't be more excited! When we work together as a team and bring a strong work ethic daily, the sky's the limit to what we can achieve in 2021-22.

We want to personally thank our office secretaries, custodians, maintenance staff ,tech staff, and counselors who have worked tirelessly over the summer to prepare our school for the upcoming school year. We appreciate our folks who are engaged in the noble work of serving others.

As we close in on the first day of school we want to reiterate that our staff at the Jr./Sr. High School are here to serve you. Let's aim high!


Best regards,


Bob and Mindy

Bob Winterberger, Principal

Mindy Robertson, Assistant Principal


Building news

  • In the initial newsletter, we mentioned that the Jr/Sr High School would have all building entrances available for students to enter. We have decided to return to one entry, in the back of the building near the cafeteria doors. Students can enter early at 7am for supervised breakfast, available at 7:30am. At 8am, students will be able to leave the cafeteria and will be greeted by their teachers to help them find their first bell class.

  • Students will be issued a chromebook on the first day of school. If a student did not return a chromebook at the end of the 20-21 school year, or pay a fee for the missing chromebook, they will not be permitted to have a new chromebook until the fee is paid or the chromebook is turned in. Please contact the office for questions at 513-891-0010.

  • Students are encouraged to bring water bottles this school year due to limiting drinking fountains. Water fill up stations will still be accessible. Cups will be provided for students that do not have a water bottle.

  • Interested in taking Driver’s Ed classes? Bick’s Driving School classes are starting August 30th. Students must attend all 6 sessions to complete the program. Registration forms can be picked up in the front office. For more information, call 513- 722- 1119, or Mr. Wright at 513-615-9114.

  • Deer Park Hall of Famers: You're invited to the opening football game on Friday, August 20th to celebrate the newest inductees as well as Mr. Hank Estes. Hall of Famers are invited to a pregame gathering in the Career Academies at 6:00 pm. We will recognize Hank after the first quarter of the game and the new inductees at halftime. See you there!

We are extremely appreciative of donations of youth clothing for Sandy's Closet. The closet is only able to accept clothing for infants to adolescence. Please do not drop off adult clothing, high heel shoes, toys, baby furniture, or formal dresses.


1st Day of School Info for Parents, Guardians, & Students

As we approach the first day of school, here is some important information about schedule distribution and the first day of school.

  • Students can access their schedule via Schoology beginning August 12, 2021.

    • Students should access Schoology to identify their 1st bell course (listed as either Section 1, 10 or 11).

    • New to the district students will have their schedules emailed to them and 7th grade will pick theirs up at the 7th grade orientation on Thursday, the 12th.

  • Students will receive paper copies of their schedule during their 1st bell on the first day of the school year.

    • Lockers and locker combinations are printed on schedules, so we will be giving students time during 1st bell to access their locker.

Finally . . . If your student is concerned about returning to school given the previous years’ events and challenges, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! Your student’s teachers, counselors, school nurse, and administrators are here to help!
