Cleaning out your bookshelves, but don’t know what to do with your unwanted books? Bring them to Hill’s Book Bin where they will be sorted and reused. Hill teachers and staff will be doing the same around the school in order to make room for their high interest books. Find the Book Bin in the front of the school. It won’t be here long, so use it while you can!

Remind your students that Chromebooks are required tools in their education, and should be cared for as they would any other technology. Even though they are in your student’s possession, they are still property of DPS. Repairs to or replacement of devices may result in charges to your student’s account that must be paid in order to graduate. Replacement of a Chromebook due to loss or damage results in a $250 charge. If your student’s Chromebook is having any issues, please direct them to the main office.
