Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center Information Update

Wednesday, July 29, 2020


There will be a School Board workshop session tonight to look at how school will open this year. The Board will be presented with three options: normal opening at full capacity, a hybrid model combining in-person and virtual instruction, and a virtual model.  The workshop is designed for the Board to critique the models, offer suggestions, and be educated about the general framework of each scenario. This year, there are multiple factors impacting placement and scheduling: the type of model with which we begin the year, staffing at each building, and actual enrollment of students choosing the model.  When we are in a position to do so, we plan to send high school schedules and other relevant information out to students and families. As with most decisions since March 13th, we need to be flexible and ready to change quickly as conditions evolve. For many students, schedules are an exciting and important part of the “back-to-school" process. We want to make sure what we send out is an accurate reflection of how school will open.  Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Yearbooks have begun to arrive at the homes of students and families.  If you ordered one still have not received one, please send me an email to me at

Senior parking pass refunds are being processed at this time at the SAU.  These checks will be mailed to students.  Juniors who purchased a parking permit last year will have the cost of this year’s permit reduced.  If a rising senior does not end up purchasing a parking permit, a refund will be provided.

Students can obtain working papers by downloading the “youth employment certificate” from the School Counseling webpage.  Students do not need to have a school official sign them if a parent signs the form and mails a copy to the state.  The original form must be given to the employer. The instructions are listed, along with the youth employment certificate on the Dover High School Counseling Office webpage.

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 Tuesdays through Thursdays 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.

Food will continue to be distributed this summer.  The schedule and locations can be found below.
