Announcements for Seniors

Here is a listing of the Announcements that have recently been sent out to seniors by email and the Canvas Blue Devil Portal.

DSHS Graduation Ceremonies (posted June 8)
Dear Blue Devil Family,

We look forward to celebrating our Seniors at the DHS Graduation Ceremonies Thursday and Friday. Here are a few reminders as we near this milestone:

NO balloons will be allowed on campus, including in the Ron and Mary Brown Stadium, due to graduation attendees with severe latex allergies and to ensure views are not obstructed.

A mask must be worn at all times on campus due to CDC guidelines.

Please maintain social distancing.

Graduation rehearsals are on Wednesday June 9, 2021, and they are mandatory for students to attend to pick up their tickets.

For more information about our ceremonies, see our Graduation FAQ on our school website at
