Welcome to the 2020-21 school year!
While it looks and feels different than in previous years, I can assure you that all are excited to see our young people, albeit in temporary virtual classrooms. Our first days of school will focus on learning more about our students’/families’ needs, building a sense of community, creating classroom norms, establishing safe practices, and exploring new and improve learning tools. I understand that distance learning will never replace all of the experiences of in-person instruction; however, we will return with unparalleled optimism and enthusiasm about what the year will bring. Abraham Lincoln once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Like you, I want our young people back in schools and classrooms, and the School Board and I are committed to making that a reality just as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, I am sending my gratitude for entrusting us with the care of your child/children and your unwavering support of Dinwiddie County Public Schools.
The mission of Dinwiddie County Public Schools is to provide each student the opportunity to become a productive citizen, engaging the entire community in the educational needs of our children. Giving our students opportunities and core values of Excellence, Equity, and Integrity will help them become productive citizens while they aspire to reach their goals and dreams for the future.
Let us introduce you to Dinwiddie County Public Schools!
