Letter from DPS

March 23, 2020

The following letter was emailed to parents:


March 23, 2020


Dear Parent or Guardian,


I hope all is well for you and your family during this time.  Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this unpresented time.   Some information: 


  • Again, school is closed to students from Wednesday, March 18 through May 1.  No practices for all activities will be conducted, e.g., athletic and musical practices.  All school activities scheduled during this period are cancelled. 

  • Graduation?  Right now, a decision, if warranted, to reschedule graduation will be made at the end of April or beginning of May.  The “no more than 10 people gathering” guideline is effective for eight (8) weeks. Rescheduling hinges on whether or not the eight (8) week guideline is lifted. 

  • Students in grades 4 -12 should begin checking their email as least once a day starting Monday, March 23.  Teachers were instructed to email students, and students are to reply.  

  • This week (March 23-27) Teachers reported to school today and will report Tuesday and Wednesday, to develop plans for providing instruction at home.  Modes may vary from class to class, especially at the secondary level. More information will be sent to you later this week about homebound instruction.   Tentative starting date is Monday, March 31. Your child or children are under NO OBLIGATION to complete any or all materials sent home this week.  

  • Breakfast and lunch.  An email will be sent to you on Thursday, March 26 to request meals for the week of March 30 through April 3.    

  • School year ends on Thursday, May 21, 2020. No extended school days or makeup days.

  • For any student that was absent on March 17th, you may come to school to pick up your computer and books on any of these days:  March 24 or 25 between the hours of 8:00 a.m to 3:30 p.m.


Deshler Public Schools is striving to provide a quality education.    Please let me know if you have any questions.
