I hope this message finds you well and enjoying family time and the holiday season. I am writing to inform parents and the community that Mrs. Showers has decided to go back into the classroom in a neighboring district and leave administration. Although this is a loss and significant mid-year change for DLPMS, it is also an opportunity for APS to strengthen our whole system. I am pleased to announce that Nick O’Neill, DLPMS Dean of Students, will be stepping up as Interim Principal for the remainder of this school year. His familiarity and stability with the district and building will ensure continuity for students and parents. Furthermore, APS has posted a K-12 Director/Supervisor of Special Education position. The selected applicant will be assigned to DLPMS as administrative support this year as well. Please feel free to reach out to Mr. O’Neill, or myself, Stacey Criner, with any questions.

As we continue to update you regarding the safety protocols in our schools, we wanted to be sure that you all are aware of a “challenge” that is currently being led by the social media platform, Tik Tok. This evening we learned of a nation-wide challenge on Tik Tok, encouraging users to make threats of violence against their schools on Friday, December 17th. Once again, we are asking for your help as parents/guardians. Please talk to your children about this type of social media challenge and encourage them to speak out against it. Remind your students of the consequences of this behavior. Sometimes our students do not realize the serious consequences or threats to the safety of our schools and community until it is too late. There have been no threats specific to APS. This is informational only.
