    DHS Construction and Renovation Update Through October 2014

    As we finish October, we want to update you on the construction and renovation activities at DHS. 

    • We have used the Commons for a number of events, including a dance and a parent meeting, and those went well.  We are in the process of installing the audio/visual systems to allow us to sound and projection capabilities for presentations and video.  In the month of November, our Leadership students will form a committee with student representatives on it to make recommendations of ways to decorate the Commons.  They will work with our architectural firm, H and K Architects, to coordinate their ideas with the design of the Commons.  Over winter break, the concrete will be polished.  The goal is by the end of the school year to have the Commons planning and decorating completed.
    • The main gymnasium is substantially complete.  We have had to delay redoing the tartan area until next summer due to required curing time.  During the second semester, we will start to reestablish the décor, including hanging the regional and state banners, the various program recognitions, and starting to talk about creating a new mural in the south end of the gymnasium.
    • The new kitchen/servery is scheduled to open at the start of second semester.  The delivery area is finished with an asphalt drive way and fencing to keep students out of the delivery area.  The interior walls are substantially complete, along with the other infrastructure, and the final preparations for receiving new equipment are underway. 
    • The 500 building has all of its classrooms being utilized except one computer lab.  That lab will be functional in November.  The remaining items, such as window coverings and finishing the outside soffit, should also be completed this month. 
    • You have probably seen the central wall of the STEM Building when driving past the school.  It, along with the exterior walls, is going up quickly.  The goal is to have the walls completed soon so that the steel girders and roof can be installed.  Currently, the STEM Building is on schedule for opening in August 2015.

    We are starting to prepare for most of the 100 hall going under construction in preparation to create new counseling and business services, a renovated nurses’ office and special education classroom and offices, a new JROTC area, and the expansion of the small gymnasium in order to have regulation volleyball and basketball courts and a larger area for PE classes.

    We’ll continue to update you as we reach our next milestones.

Principal's Message:

                       

Welcome to the Douglas High School website.  The community of the Carson Valley is proud of our students and their accomplishments.  A major reason why Douglas High School is a great place is because we have exceptional students, parents, staff, and community members working together to provide meaningful educational opportunities.

We have a common vision of the future for each of our students that our school mission statement reflects:

“Douglas High School students will have opportunities to achieve their potential and to graduate as competent, life-long learners who continue to grow as productive citizens.”

Our staff and community want the best for our students, and we work hard to achieve our mission and to meet the dreams and goals of our students.

On our website you will find valuable information about the programs and opportunities we have at our school.  There is also a link to the Douglas County School District website if you would like to learn more about our school district.

Please feel free to contact any of our staff if you have any questions or comments.

Go Tigers!
