Principal's Message

  • Principal Joselyn Reid Dear DPE Family,
    As we welcome you back to campus, we are excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! Our school theme this year is "On The Road to Success: Building Leaders & Scholars"
    Despite many challenges and obstacles, our staff is dedicated to making this an outstanding school year for all our students. When our students return to campus, you will notice various safety protocols in place. Signs to emphasize social distancing and posters of enhanced safety measures will be posted throughout our school.  During the school year, you will be informed of new initiatives in academics, social/emotional learning, and school safety.  We look forward to your continued collaboration this year to ensure that your child receives the best education possible.
    We are committed to providing a rich academic environment to ensure that all our students are college and career-ready. Parents, it is extremely important that your child arrives on time to school each day. Our gates open at 8:15 am. Free breakfast is provided for all students between 8:20 am – 8:50 am. After 8:50 am, students must consume outside breakfast items (McDonald’s, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) prior to entering the building.
    As a Magnet School of Visual and Performing Arts, we are dedicated to providing your child with an educational experience designed to develop their unique talents. We need the continued cooperation of our parents, community partners, and stakeholders to ensure that our school continues to shine. We encourage parents to participate in our School Advisory Council (SAC) Meetings, join our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), or serve as a volunteer.
    We are looking forward to having an amazing year for our wonderful students!
    Jocelyn Reid
    Proud Principal
