Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center Information Update
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
We want to remind students and families that the parking lot in front of the building are closed for the summer. This is to allow work to continue uninterrupted and ensure safety. People needing to park should you use the Bellamy Academy Lot. Students participating in summer activities should use the entrance in the rear of the building, Door Number 09
The Weight Room is open for students from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm this summer every Monday through Friday. Supervision will be provided by various staff members with expertise in fitness. Students should use the entrance in the rear of the building, Door Number C09.
The School Counseling Office will be closed the weeks of July 29th and August 5th. Parents/students can call 516-6940 before or after those dates if they need information.
For the 2019-2020 School Year the School District is changing to a new student information system, Infinite Campus. This means we will be changing how our school counselors are scheduled for the summer to assist with new registrations and schedule changes. Appointments are being deferred until a window between August 13th and August 23rd. During that window of time we will have multiple counselors available so that we end up being able to offer the same number of appointments as we have in previous summers.
We are sharing with everyone an essay competition sponsored by Ethics and Economics Education of New England for New Hampshire high school students. It offers prizes worth $1750. The topic is: “What is the moral value of economic growth?” Full information is available at http://www.e3ne.org/nh-student-essay-contest-2019/ .
Summer reading and summer assignments are posted. You will be able to find them under the Summer Reading tab which is found in the For Families section.
Dover High School will offer summer school courses for credit recovery. Earn ½ or 1 credit in English, Math, Science, Social Studies or Health. Summer school will run from July 8 – August 2, Monday – Friday from 8 am to 12 pm. Cost is $100 for ½ credit course; $150 for 1 credit course.

Please find attached a letter explaining the Summer Grab & Go program that provides food over the summer for Dover children and youth. Dover High School serves as a distribution site for this program on Thursdays at 12:15 pm. This nonprofit works tirelessly to provide food resources for our students over the summer and we thank them for their efforts.
