Monday, May 8th | Important Notice Regarding Toys and Electronics

Please read the following notice carefully! All toys and electronics must be kept inside your scholar’s backpack at all times during the school day. All electronics, including cell phones, must be turned off before entering the school building. DPHE cannot be held responsible for any lost items, including electronic devices, so we highly recommend that scholars keep them at home.

Fidget spinners have been becoming increasingly popular, and while their intended purpose is to calm and focus children and adults, they have become a significant distraction. These toys should be kept at home or stowed away at all times during the school day. If a DPHE teacher or staff member finds a toy or electronic device during the school day, we will take the item until a parent or family member is able to pick it up.

Thank you for the continued support, and feel free to reach out with any questions!
