News and Announcements
Our last day of school for K-8 students is Wednesday, June 12 (last day for PK is June 11). Dahlgren students, you have worked hard to make this another successful year. For those returning in August, we look forward to seeing you. For those who are moving, we wish you fair winds and following seas. Have a wonderful, safe, fun, and restful summer!
Mark your calendar and save the date! In conjunction with the Base 95th Anniversary celebration, Dahlgren School will host a reunion for all former staff and students on October 19, 2013. This event is sponsored by the Friends of Dahlgren School. Check back for additional details in August.
The Secretary of Defense has determined that most Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees will be furloughed for up to 11 days. However, the Secretary approved for our teachers and some school level support staff to be furloughed for up to 5 days before September 30, 2013. For Dahlgren School, these five furlough days will be 30 August, 6 September, 13 September, 20 September, and 27 September. The school will be closed for students and teachers on these five days if the furlough is enacted.
Dahlgren School will begin for students on 27 August 2013. The outstanding educators, administrators, and support staff of the New York, Virginia, Puerto Rico district remain committed to providing our students a quality educational experience and supporting our military families. Your continued support is appreciated during this time. Please contact your child's school or the District Superintendent's Office with any questions you may have at this time.
