STUDENT IDs

We are a controlled access campus and all of our students are required to be in possession of a picture student ID.   All returning dTHS students should keep their existing IDs for access. For any new dTHS students or students joining us from other schools, students should visit the main office on their first day (after class or Sports or Spark or Eco-Botics) and have their pictures taken. The student IDs usually take 1 day to turn around and we will give teachers the ID cards to distribute back to any students who are in need of one. Students should then make sure they are in possession of their ID each time they are on campus.

PARKING, DROP OFF/PICKUP

There is no dTHS bus transportation available for Summer 2018. The campus is available for student drop-off beginning at 7:30AM. Parking spots are available for student drivers. We will ask students to park on Level 1 of our parking structure and obey all requests from our security officials. Please inquire in the office on your first day for the paperwork needed to park on campus. Students will be issued parking placards on their first day of class that must be returned after their last class. Per our Conditional Use Permit, families and students are asked to enter our campus heading Eastbound on Vanowen. Left turns into the campus heading Westbound on Vanowen are prohibited. Turning onto neighboring streets and making U-Turns are also prohibited. Please respect our neighbors.
