Black History Month

Today, is the first day of Black History Month, a celebration of achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent. Black History Month was catalyzed by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, whom our own middle school is named in honor of.

In 1915 Dr. Woodson and prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded what is now known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). In 1926, the ASALH piloted National Negro History week, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthday of Frederick Douglass.

This event inspired celebrations nationwide, which over the years blossomed into the Black History Month many schools and communities commemorate today.

Dupont Elementary Update

The following message was shared with out Dupont Community:
Dear Dupont Families,

We want to make you aware that this morning a student in one of the classrooms at Dupont told another student in the classroom that they had a gun in their bookbag. The teacher immediately separated the student from the class and involved security and other staff. There was a thorough search of the bookbag and all other belongings. No weapons of any kind were found. The student has been removed from school and additional steps are being pursued. We also involved the police.



Parents of students in the class where this occurred have already been contacted, but we wanted all parents to be aware of what occurred. There is no threat to the students or the school. Thank you for your partnership, understanding, and support during these challenging times.
