I would like to inform you that Dawson-Bryant Local Schools will be rescheduling the opening date for school to begin on August 31st, 2020.  Staff will still report on August 17th, 2020.  This will allow our staff more time for training and for building preparation.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Elementary School Supplies for the 2020-2021 School Year
We have updated some of our supply lists to reflect our new learning environment.
Here are some of the changes for this school year:
-All students will be provided one reusable cloth facial covering (mask) and lanyard, but you may want to have a couple of extra in case it would be misplaced.
-You will not need to purchase a lunchbox for your child. All lunches from home must be in a disposable bag.
-Although water fountains will not be accessible to students, your child may bring a water bottle with them to school, and we will refill as needed.
District Restart / Reopen Plan for 2020-2021

Dear Hornet Families, First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we, as a nation and community, responded to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19 in March. I am very proud of the way our DBLSD students, parents, and employees handled the demands we were faced with to protect everyone as we continued to educate and feed our students during the most unusual of circumstances. Provided are two links to my letter regarding the Restart and Reopening plan for Dawson-Bryant Local Schools as well as our plan.  Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for ALL students and employees during these challenging times.  Serving you, Steve Easterling, Superintendent


KNOW! To Continue the Conversation on Racism
Conversations on race and racism are not necessarily easy or comfortable, but they are imperative. To have informed, constructive conversations with our children on this subject, we must first lay the foundation. We can do so by discussing some key terms with them, as shared in the previous Know! Tip. While some of the words and definitions may seem basic, it is important children (and adults) understand the differences between them. It is also necessary to catch up on some of the new, more complex terms being used, and share those with our young people as well. If you would like, take a moment now and review the previous tip, Know! To Define Racial Terms for Teens, which has a glossary of terms you’ll want to know. The conversation certainly should not end with definitions. It is imperative to keep talking. If you’re at a loss for words, we can help. Here are some things to consider incorporating into your ongoing conversations on this topic with your children.
