Happy New Year!

"DeKalb County School District students will return to class on Thursday, January 4. Classes will take place as normally scheduled. Please be mindful of the winter temperatures as students prepare to board school buses or otherwise travel to school. Be sure to bundle up in your winter clothing and minimize your time outside. We look forward to serving you in 2018.

If a student is currently under the weather, they may not be able to attend school. Please review this helpful article from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Inc. (https://www.choa.org/medical-services/wellness-and-preventive-care/parent-resources/all/too-sick-for-school) for more information."

Dear DHHS Families,

Please see the below note from Ms. Cunningham. We wish her all the best in her new endeavors and thank her for four-plus great years leading Druid Hills High School! Please be on the lookout for additional information from the District, the DHHS Advisory Council, and DHHS PTSA about selection of our next Principal.

"It is with mixed feelings that I announce my resignation as Principal of Druid Hills High School, effective October 31, 2017. I am leaving DeKalb County School District to serve as the Director of Testing and Assessment at Atlanta Public Schools.

"I feel fortunate to have served in numerous capacities during my thirteen years in DCSD. And it has truly been my honor and pleasure to serve as your Principal for over four years. I am proud of the successes and growth we achieved together as a community and I look forward to hearing about even more Red Devil accomplishments in the years to come.

"Mr. Arnold and I met with the Druid Hills High staff as well as the Advisory Council and PTSA Board during two meetings this afternoon to share the news and to outline the process for hiring the next Druid Hills High School Principal.

"Please know that I will always remain a friend and supporter of the Red Devils and will work with the staff, DCSD, and the new Principal as necessary to facilitate a smooth leadership transition."
