Principal’s Message

Portrait of Greg Carradine

Dear David Douglas Families and Community,

Welcome to 2022!  I hope everyone had an opportunity to relax, recharge, and feel ready to start a new year.  I have enjoyed having students in the building and our incredible staff continues to work hard to create an inclusive learning environment so that ALL students feel welcome. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially. 

Navigating this pandemic has required us to remain flexible and to adjust our daily routines both at home and at school in order to keep our classrooms running and safe.

Please pay close attention to the following reminders.

·  All students and staff, and any visitors to our campus are required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

·  Your mask must cover your nose and mouth at all times, except when you are eating and drinking.

·  You must regularly wash and sanitize your hands throughout the day.

·  Bring your own water bottle to school and use the water filling station.

·  Each member of our community bears a personal responsibility for our school and our classmates.

I’m especially grateful to our teachers for showing up bravely everyday for our students.  They have endured many changes and challenges during this pandemic.  

Pay close attention to messaging from the David Douglas School District to remain current in the latest health and safety protocols, our implementation of activities and athletics, and any potential changes to our schedule.  I acknowledge your perseverance and your commitment to our DDHS community.  Through collaboration, hard work and strong parental and community partnership, David Douglas High School can maintain its mission, “A place where connections are made.”
