Dover High School Family Information Update

November 21, 2017 

We hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving Break.  There will be no school from Wednesday, November 22 through Sunday, November 26th.  Classes will resume at 7:40 am on Monday, November 27th


     We would like to thank the students and staff of Dover High School for providing Thanksgiving meals to 31 families that needed assistance.


     On Friday, November 24th the final alumni basketball games to be held in this building will take place. The women’s game is being held at 6:15 pm with the men’s game following at 7:30 pm. The night will include displays that look at the history of this and previous Dover High Schools, renderings of the new building, and the opportunity to tour the current facility for a walk down Nostalgia Lane.  We encourage all alumni, whether associated with the basketball program or not, to join us for one of many events that will celebrate the history and traditions of our current building.  Doors open at 5:30 pm with tours beginning at that time and continuing throughout the evening.


      The Dover School District has started a new Facebook Page with information about upcoming events and brief blurbs on events taking place in the District.  Please visit the page for information and updates about all the remarkable things going on at Dover High School and throughout the District.


     An email was sent to all Dover High School families on Monday, November 13th asking for your participation in a survey that must be completed as part of our accreditation with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.  It is an important part of our self-study, providing feedback on the school’s strengths and areas where improvement is needed.  Below is the information needed to complete the survey and we thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

Please go to the website  On that page you will see a blue box that states:






Please refer to the email for the survey and access codes.   

Repeated Information

     The Dover Police Department wishes to pass along a friendly reminder to both students and parents that the use of any handheld mobile electronic device while driving is against the law.  The use of handheld electronic devices while driving causes significant distractions to the driver, and increases your chances of being involved in an accident.  The Dover Police Department strictly enforces all laws pertaining to the Use of Mobile Electronic Device While Driving.

     Dover High School participates in the Hannaford Helps School Program that takes place from August 27 through December 2.  When shopping at Hannaford, please deposit your receipt if appropriate in the collection tree.

     We ask that you do not stop to drop off or pick up students on Alumni Drive.  We only want students crossing the street in crosswalks.  This practice is dangerous and negatively impacts traffic flow
