What's Available

Parents have many options for staying connected to their students' lives.  Take a look at the choices below to find the best solution for your family and use Quick Links buttons in left-hand column to make your selections.

PTA LISTSERVER

DHS families to receive school-wide Announcements from the high school, the District, and PTA, including the monthly newsletters. This listserver is ideal for parents who want the essential information and not heavy email traffic.  

CLASS LISTSERVERS

These are for parents and guardians of the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior Classes. We add one for incoming 10th grade parents/guardians the winter prior to their transfer to help ease the transition into high school. These listservers are designed to meet the needs of each specific year. (Senior class perhaps does not need information about junior prom!) The listservers meet the needs of our parents/guardians and DHS communication in  different ways.

PTA NEWSLETTER

Usually monthly publication is available in print or online format.  Announcements, articles, dates and details are submitted to our editor   The PTA expense for producing the newsletter has been more than halved by reducing the number of hard copies mailed each month. Currently approximately 70% of our parents receive the newsletter electronically.  Want Back issues of the PTA Newsletters? Click on QUICK LINKS Button Newsletter Archives.

DAILY BULLETIN (DHS)

Daily Bulletins are made up of school-related announcements intended for students. They are compiled by the high school, not PTA. They are broadcast via the PA system, read or posted in class, they are also posted at the school's office, library and website. Students are encouraged to be resourceful and to keep themselves informed.

PTA WEBSITE

Is maintained year-round by a volunteer webmaster to provide additional resources for the DHS-PTA community.  If you have questions or suggestions, please contact the PTA Webmaster.

OTHER SOURCES

Booster clubs often have their own website, listserver and newsletter (see Booster Clubs).   "HUB" newspaper is available in the school library (see HUB))

HAVE INFORMATION YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE?

Guidelines for submitting information to the PTA newsletter, listserver and website:

When you send an announcement to the address at DHSPTAmedia@mailman.dcn.org, volunteers responsible for the newsletter, listserver, and website will simultaneously receive your message and will help you disseminate it to the DHS community through the appropriate channel(s). This is a permanent address to help streamline school-wide and district-wide communications. Submitting before the newsletter deadline will ensure your message will reach all DHS families, whether they have Internet access or not.   See Submission Guidelines & Deadlines.   

DHS Daily Bulletin:

Announcements for the Daily Bulletin need to be sent directly to dshsbulletin@djusd.net. Please DON'T send submissions for non-school events even if they are geared towards students, because they won't be included in the Daily Bulletin.  Many parents find the Daily Bulletins informative. To receive them directly via email, please fill out a simple form to sign up for the Daily Bulletin Listserver. The DHS secretary sends the bulletin out in the afternoon of the preceding school day.
