United Public Schools

HOME OF THE LAKERS: Empowering 21st century learners in a safe and respectful learning environment with reflection, technology, and collaboration. • Be Respectful. • Be Responsible. • Be Safe.
Due to the recent spike of COVID-19 cases, we have decided to postpone the face to face conferences for grades 7-12 scheduled for today October 20th and Wednesday October 21st. We will set virtual conferences for a later date for grades 7-12. If you are a parent of a 7-12 grade student and would like to visit with your child's teachers, you are more than welcome to do so via email or phone call.

he Preschool through 6th grade virtual conferences that have been scheduled will continue to go on as planned.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we feel this is best for our staff and community at this time. 

HOME GAMES We hope this clears up any confusion some may have regarding entry of home games moving forward while Ward County is in yellow. 

Beginning at noon on Friday,  September 25, for home indoor events, each participant will be issued 2 vouchers. These vouchers will be given to each participant prior to the contest and are to be used to be able to purchase a ticket to the contest. Adults and students who do not attend DL-B will not be allowed entrance to the contest unless they present the voucher.  DL-B students will still be allowed entrance for home games without having a voucher.  This directly affects our home volleyball game with Bishop Ryan on Tuesday, September 29th. Again, when looking at away games, those parameters are determined by the hosting school.

Finally, outdoor games hosted at DL-B do not have any restrictions on fan admittance at this time.

I would like to thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.
