Welcome to the 2022-2023 school-year! 

This year, Dumbarton welcomes a new principal, two new assistant principals, several new teachers and leaders - and of course, a new group of 6th graders. As we welcome all to our school, we feel both eager and perhaps nervous for new faces, new routines and new learning. The good news is that we look forward to returning to more in-person events this year so that we can work, learn and celebrate together in safe and appropriate ways.

We hope that you find helpful resources on our website, which continues to be updated with important new information and will include links to our new resource handbook for students and parents - a document which will  contain all of the information that you need to know in order for your student to meet with success this year, including bell schedules, contact information, safety information and more.

We will sending out our back to school letters on or around August 15, and you can check your student's schedule on Focus.
