Dear Donovan School Community,

Donovan Schools will tentatively reopen Wednesday, April 8, 2020

All co-curricular and extra-curricular activities will be suspended until further notice.

Student Meals: We will continue to offer meals to all children 18 & under on Tuesday, March 31 through school closure. Meals will meet the USDA guidelines. More details coming regarding where, when, and how often we will distribute. 

More information will be forthcoming as the situation evolves. Please continue to check our website, classroom dojo, and Facebook for updates. 

If you have specific concerns that I can help you with, please contact me privately at
