For Parents of Spring Sport Athletes

Spring Sports (Baseball, Softball, Track and Field, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, Swimming, Boys Tennis and Boys Golf) will be here before you know it. Tryouts officially start on Feb. 4th. This means that it is Athletic Packet time. If your student has already done a Fall or Winter sport you will just need to have your student talk to Mrs. Oravetz in Student Activities once school resumes and she can transfer the packet.

If this is your student’s first Athletic packet for the year, one of the key items is a physical form that must be completed by a doctor. You can either take it to your child’s personal physician or there will be a sports physical night sometime in mid to late January where your student can have a sports physical for a nominal fee. Cyber Stacey will send out more details when they become available.


Safe Routes to Schools is going to conduct a walk audit on Wednesday, Jan. 16, from 7:30 – 9:30 am, meeting in the lobby of the Administration offices. We are inviting parents, students, city staff, and school administration to provide their input on ways to improve the safety of the streets around Dublin High School. If you are unable to attend the audit, please feel free to email me with input that you would like us to consider. To RSVP or message me directly, please email

Community Thanks

Aéropostale in Stoneridge Mall made a generous donation on behalf of our school to the Toys for Tots program. Their manager Chris, and their employees, some of our students, Alexandria Caterina, Danielle Moon, Patrick Wallace, Nicole Newman and Emma Neckar donated 48 teddy
bears. Thank you!

Thanks to the generosity of the DHS Band students and parents who contributed so generously as part of their attendance at the Winter Concert. As a school we collected over 500 toys for needy Dublin children. ** A big thank you is also owed to Mens’ Warehouse for donating all of the tuxedos used in our Mr. Dublin pageant.

Trustees Seek Applicants for Board Vacancy

On December 11, 2012 the Dublin Unified School District Board of Trustees adopted procedures and timelines for a provisional appointment to fill a board vacancy due to former trustee David Haubert’s election to the Dublin City Council, effective December 4, 2012. This appointment will be in effect through the present term of office for the vacated position, which expires in December 2014.

The process for the provisional appointment includes the completion of an application and a formal interview by a board panel. The board panel will nominate candidates to the full board, which will conduct interviews at the January 29, 2013 board meeting. The board will make the provisional appointment and the successful candidate will take the oath of office and be seated that evening.
Interested individuals are required to submit an application.

Application packets are available at the following locations:
