  • Backpacks are recommended for use to and from school however backpacks on wheels are not (safety issue in hall).
  • Students access their lockers during all class changes. DMS combination lockers must be used as we have master keys.
  • Students will need tennis shoes & socks for Physical Education class every other day.
  • Individual teachers there may be other specific supplies needed.


Our DMS community gladly supports others in our Home of Owl Pride. We realize that school supplies can be expensive, and we have families willing to help with this expense. Please contact Amy Horvitz, our School Counseling Chairperson at for assistance or if you want to donate items.

We look forward to a great school year!
