New Information

Online registration for the WINTER 2018-19 High School and Middle School Athletic programs will begin on NOVEMBER 1, 2018 through our partner company FAMILY.ID (www.familyid.com).  The only paper/hard form being accepted in the athletic office is the physical exam form.  All other necessary forms for athletic participation MUST be done online.  Please remember that athletic eligibility for winter sports is based on Quarter 1 grades.

     On November 13th seniors will have the opportunity to submit at least one college application with the assistance of representatives from admissions offices from various New Hampshire colleges and universities during the school day at an event called I AM COLLEGE BOUND. As part of the initiative, students will receive information about the additional components of a college application, the college financial aid process and filing the FAFSA form.  All NH schools will be free to apply to on that day. Students will also be eligible to win a $500 college scholarship for participating in the program.

Parent/Guardian permission is required to participate (see attached permission slip).  Students can sign up in the School Counseling Office.  The deadline to do so is November 1st.

     Grades for First Quarter close on Friday, November 2nd.  Please check with your student(s) on where they stand in their classes as we approach the end of the quarter.

Repeated Information

     Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center’s 8th Grade Information Night will be held on Thursday, November 1st from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.  This event is for both students and parents and begins in the auditorium with a brief overview of Dover High School’s offerings.  Families are then invited to tour different sections of the building to see and meet with academic departments, Career Technical Center programs, athletic coaches and players, music and theater program teachers and participants, and club advisors and members.

     The JROTC Program is running a canned food drive between October 22nd and November 9th to support End 68 Hours of Hunger, a program that provides students and families with a bag of food to help them over the weekend.  Preferred donations include:  peanut butter, canned beef stews and soups, boxed macaroni and cheese, granola bars, instant flavored potatoes and oatmeal packets, saltines and graham crackers, canned pasta such as beefaroni and ravioli, Hormel complete meals, fruit cups, instant flavored rice or noodles, canned tuna, chicken, or pulled pork, and pudding cups.  Thank you for supporting this program which helps our food insecure families.

      We want to thank everyone for their cooperation during morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal as we work to maintain the safety of our students.  We ask that both drop-off and pick-up take place in front of the old high school.  Please do not use the lot in front of the new building or the lot in front of the Bellamy Academy, located across the street from the new building.

      The Dover Family School Alliance is sponsoring a free viewing of the movie Intelligence Lives produced by award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib on Thursday, October 25th at 6:30 pm in the auditorium at Dover High School.  A brief social gathering will be held beforehand at 6:00 pm.

     Transportation- Parent Drop Off- We encourage students to take the bus and car pool to alleviate traffic and delays due to the volume of traffic in the area around morning drop off and afternoon dismissal.  Our proximity to the Dover Middle School and the limited ability of the infrastructure to handle the volume of traffic present at these times makes travel through the Durham Road/Route 108 and Bellamy Road corridors difficult at best.  This situation will at times be compounded by continued construction and demolition activities on the Dover High School campus.  If you are dropping your students off and/or picking them up, you must use Parking Lot A (not the bus access road) in front of the old school.  Because of the temporary nature of the parking lot in front of the new school, students cannot be dropped off or picked up there.  For the safety of our students, students are not to be dropped off or picked up anywhere along Alumni Drive. For Parking Lot A, the entrance is on the Durham Road/Route 108 end of the lot and the exit is on the Bellamy Road end of the lot.

       Transportation- Parking for Athletic and Other After School Events- Parking for events held at Dunaway Field and Bellamy Field is in the Bellamy Lot and the three lots located at the school:  Alternative School Lot, Senior Lot, and Parking Lot A (in front of the old building).  Please be sure to park in marked spaces only to ensure the safety of pedestrians and to allow access for emergency vehicles.
