    Greetings Broncos

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Denton High School! Our faculty and staff are excited to welcome our students back to campus. If we have learned anything in the last year, it is that education IS A GIFT, and we are ready to have teachers and students together exploring content and challenging one another.

    First, let me clarify that as of the first day of school, masks will be optional (but encouraged) for anyone in a Denton ISD facility. I realize that this is a dynamic situation and direction/directives/policies may change. Students need to feel safe regardless of wearing a mask or not – we will strive to make the transition back to the classroom as stress-free as possible.

    DHS will be hosting a Freshman First Day Wednesday, August 11th beginning at 8:00 am. This is a chance for freshmen to “walk” their schedule as well as meet their teachers, counselors, and administrators. Other activities are planned and lunch is provided.      Freshman Day Flyer

    We realize that there are several students that have not been on campus (or have not in over a year) so we are hosting an open house for returning students (or Connected Learners) new to the campus. This will be the afternoon of the 11th from 2-4:00 pm.       Welcome Back Flyer

    Also new this year will be Advisory periods that are worked into the weekly schedule. These will be 30-minute sessions where small groups of students (by grade level) meet with faculty mentors. With all the variables and experiences of the past year, it will be beneficial to “pause” and check in with students outside of the traditional classroom setting.

    Finally, I must add that this will be a bittersweet year for many Bronco families as we spend the last school year at 1007 N. Fulton Street. Generations of Dentonites have graduated from this campus and we will be moving to the new Denton High Campus next summer. More information about the new campus will be released in the upcoming months!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to call or stop by.

    Thank you,

    Joel Hays
