DPAC Family Update for the Week Ending September 24

Posted on Sunday / September 26
Welcome to the latest DPAC Family Update. Below are a few key pieces of information we would like to be sure everyone is familiar with. For more detail, you can always visit our website at dpac.democracyprep.org; follow our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; or email us at dpac_info@democracyprep.org.
Masks are a part of the scholar uniform: As scholars come to campus each school day, their uniform must include a well-fitting and properly worn (above the nose) mask. Just as uniform shirts, pants, and accessories are the responsibility of the scholar, so is their mask. Everyone must wear a mask while they are on campus (during arrival, during the school day, and during dismissal). Please ensure that your scholar arrives on campus with a mask. Anyone that arrives without a mask will have to wait until the conclusion of arrival to have a mask provided to them.

Support for Families Facing Homelessness: DPAC FAMILIES, we’d like to inform you that there is a program that provides support to families facing homelessness. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act allows our school to provide educational support and other resources to families experiencing homelessness. It is important to note that homelessness encompasses several categories including families that lost their housing and are living with other families or relatives due to economic hardship.  It also includes families living in a motel or emergency or transitional shelter.
Please complete this survey so we may determine whether or not your family qualifies for educational support and other resources.
