To Parents & Guardians of Dirigo Elementary School Students: Dear DES Parents & Guardians, Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16 from 3-6 PM you can pick up your child's electronic device at the school. This will be a drive up event. Please have the form that was sent home on Monday filled out and signed. Please use the outer loop (the one closest to the school) when coming to retrieve your child's device. We recommend that you use a school issued device because some of the programs are preloaded on them and we can push programs out to them better than we can with private devices. Thank you and have a good evening
