School Pictures

Picture Make-up Day will be Friday, March 26th.  Virtual students can come to school and take pictures between 4-5pm.  This will ensure your child’s picture will be in the yearbook.


ISASP State Testing for 20-21 School Year

The state will administer the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP).  DMPS will begin administration of the test for grades 3-11 beginning May 10 for in-person learners and May 17 for virtual learners.  Virtual learners would need to come into school to take the test.  Perkins will take all necessary percautions to be certain students are safe.  This assessment gives us a good idea about the level of content mastery for each student.  More information to come on schedule.

Pick up and Drop off Procedures

If we end up having in-person school this year, please know that bus transportation will be made to be as safe as it can be for the kids who are riding.  That being said, if possible, try to bring your kids to and from school to avoid undo risk.  Our car line in the morning is almost always short and smooth and we will strive to maintain that for you.
