General Announcements


    October 21, 2021



    There will be a pep rally in the gym during 3rd period Friday for Juniors and Seniors ONLY!  Seating is limited in the gym so we had to restrict the pep rally competitions to Juniors and Seniors ONLY!  NO EXCEPTIONS EXCEPT FOR CHEERLEADERS!  Juniors and Seniors will be dismissed from 3rd period over the intercom.  All Senior Boot Camp teachers need to be in the gym to chaperone!

    All students will be dismissed to the football field after 5th period attendance for the powder puff football game.  This is FREE!  We will have concessions so bring money for goodies.  Bathrooms on the home side will be open.  Students, please participate and don’t just get early dismissals before or during the game.  It  makes it extremely difficult to take care of everyone trying to leave early when we have an event.  We want everyone to participate and have a good time before we start the weekend and win the Musket Bowl!  Show your school spirit!

    To all of those who have participated so far this week in the dress up days, thank you!  You have done a great job and have made it very, very hard to narrow down to a winner!   Remember, on Friday, the overall winner will receive a $100 gift card from the Athletic Director and Mrs. Wright will have gift cards for 2nd and 3rd place.

    ATTENTION SENIORS!  If you not verified your  MyACT account by today, you will have to pay to send your scores.  If you have questions, please see Ms. Clark in N-1!

    Coach Connell wants to meet with anyone interested in basketball Friday at the beginning of 3rd period.  You will be dismissed over the intercom.

    HOSA will be hosting a fall blood drive next Friday, October 29th. If you would like to donate blood, please grab a permission slip from the blood drive table at lunch.  A reminder, if you donate 3 times during your senior year, you will receive a red cord, and if you donate 5 times your junior and senior year, you will receive a red and white superhero cord. 

    Underclassman….If you had your picture taken on remake day your proofs are available for pickup in the bookstore over lunch.

    Any student interested in volunteering for the Haunted Half Marathon in Jonesborough the morning of October 30th from 8:00-12:00 may text or call Becky Earp, Volunteer Coordinator, at 423-741-6976.

    Nurse Sheila would like to announce there is now a food box on our grounds.  This food box is located right beside the guard shack.  This is for our community, not just for DCHS students.  Please feel free to utilize this box, and please pass the word that this box is available.  If you would like to contribute to the Community Food Box, please contact Nurse Sheila.

    FCA will meet in the weight room on Tuesdays at 7:15.  You do NOT have to be an athlete to attend.


    Wrestling practice is Monday through Thursday from 3:00-5:00 in the auxiliary gym.




    STUDENTS:  If you are going home on a different bus or getting off your bus at a different spot, you must bring the office a note stating what you are doing and your parent or guardian has to call the office and confirm the note.  We will sign the note and you can pick it up to give to the bus driver.  Bus drivers will not let you on a different bus or off at a different stop without a  note signed by the office.


    Compulsory Attendance Forms are required for students to get their driver permit.  Application forms are available in the front office.  Please allow 24-48 hours before the form is required.  The compulsory attendance form will only be completed the same day as requested in emergency situations.
