Important Info for Seniors and Parents/Guardians:

     A follow up financial aid event for seniors will be a fun and interactive presentation by the New Hampshire Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) for seniors during the school day on October 23rd and October 24th.  There will be a presentation once every block for seniors in the auditorium over the course of the two days.  Seniors must sign up in the School Counseling Office to attend one of the presentations.  Sign-ups will begin October 1st.   

     We want to thank everyone for their cooperation during morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal as we work to maintain the safety of our students.  We ask that both drop-off and pick-up take place in front of the old high school.  Please do not use the lot in front of the new building or the lot in front of the Bellamy Academy, located across the street from the new building.

The Dover Family School Alliance is sponsoring a free viewing of the movie Intelligence Lives produced by award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib on Thursday, October 25th at 6:30 pm in the auditorium at Dover High School.  A brief social gathering will be held beforehand at 6:00 pm.

     The Dover High School Unified Program will be holding its Yes, I Can 5 K on Sunday, November 4th at 11:00 am.  An informational flyer and registration form are attached.  Please consider joining us for this celebration of inclusion in our school community and help raise money for these valuable programs.

     Transportation- Parent Drop Off- We encourage students to take the bus and car pool to alleviate traffic and delays due to the volume of traffic in the area around morning drop off and afternoon dismissal.  Our proximity to the Dover Middle School and the limited ability of the infrastructure to handle the volume of traffic present at these times makes travel through the Durham Road/Route 108 and Bellamy Road corridors difficult at best.  This situation will at times be compounded by continued construction and demolition activities on the Dover High School campus.  If you are dropping your students off and/or picking them up, you must use Parking Lot A (not the bus access road) in front of the old school.  Because of the temporary nature of the parking lot in front of the new school, students cannot be dropped off or picked up there.  For the safety of our students, students are not to be dropped off or picked up anywhere along Alumni Drive. For Parking Lot A, the entrance is on the Durham Road/Route 108 end of the lot and the exit is on the Bellamy Road end of the lot.

       Transportation- Parking for Athletic and Other After School Events- Parking for events held at Dunaway Field and Bellamy Field is in the Bellamy Lot and the three lots located at the school:  Alternative School Lot, Senior Lot, and Parking Lot A (in front of the old building).  Please be sure to park in marked spaces only to ensure the safety of pedestrians and to allow access for emergency vehicles.
