 Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center Information Update

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 

Yearbooks will be mailed directly to student’s homes by the publisher.  They are now anticipating a late June ship date.

Students who failed high school classes will have two different opportunities to make up the courses this summer.

1.       For students who failed an English or math class with a 50%-54% and received an incomplete, someone will reach out to families individually to schedule time with a teacher.

2.       For students who failed a course and need to retake the entire class, a computer credit recovery will be offered free of charge. Please complete the following survey to sign up by July 1. Summer online credit recovery sign up

 

For students who still have materials to drop off and pick up, we ask that you drop materials off at the table in front of the school any weekday between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm starting July 6th.  If you have something to pick up, please use the buzzer to call into the office.  Please wear a mask.

The Dover School District Athletic Department continues to navigate the impact of the coronavirus environment relative to athletics.  Some professional sports teams are attempting to make a comeback and various youth teams have gathered to begin practicing and competing.  These returns to play have happened while many school-based athletic programs are taking a more cautious approach to an in-person return to play/practice.  A few NHIAA member schools have returned a limited number of student-athletes to their campuses to begin restricted, small group summer conditioning programs while most of the schools have yet to start any live school-based activities.  Some schools are hoping to begin modified activities in the coming weeks while others have no plans for any activities over the summer months. The Dover Athletic Department continues to refer to the Governor’s Stay at Home 2.0 Phase 2 Order, guidance from the National Federation of High Schools Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, and the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association’s recommendations on the development of a plan to return from remote activities. 

Please understand that all Dover Athletic Coaches have been directed to continue with remote activities with their student-athletes as they see fit.  Our Coaches have also been instructed that no in-person activities are to take place at this time as we take a guarded approach to any live and any on-campus or off-campus activities.  We are hopeful that some restricted live and in-person activities can return at some point in the coming weeks.

More information will be communicated as it becomes available.  If you have any questions,  please feel free to contact the Dover Athletic Department at 603-516-6950 or by emailing Peter Wotton,  the District’s Athletic Director at p.wotton@dover.k12.nh.us.
