We're excited to start the year and want to remind you of the upcoming new student orientation! 

Orientation for all 9th graders and new students will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 15; you may arrive as early as 4:25 p.m. (no need to come any earlier).  Please enter at the Main Street entrance (please drop off students in the Main Street parking lot - NOT ON Main Street), where you will be greeted by several VERY excited Positively North student leaders who have been preparing all summer to lead you through a fun afternoon of leadership and learning that will ensure a successful Day #1 as a Trojan.  Orientation will end at 7 p.m.

9th Graders and New Students: Please bring your schedule with you (you don’t have to print it out; having a copy on your phone is ok!).  Schedules will be available starting August 11th - Please log in to Home Access Center to see your 23-24 schedule.  Directions to access HAC are here; if you’d like to watch a video tutorial about HAC, click here.  

Parents/Guardians/Families: we will have a parent meeting at 6:15 p.m. in the Clarence Johnson Auditorium.  Please enter at the Main Street entrance.  You can meet the DGN administration and hear from a few parents about the important things to know as you prepare to send your student to high school.  The meeting will conclude at 7 p.m.

We encourage ALL students and families to stick around after the meeting - you can meet up with your student afterward and take a self-guided building tour, purchase DGN gear from our Athletic Boosters, and members of our administrative team will also be available in the Commons for any questions.
