2018 Summer Reading

​Required summer reading information and assignments can be found by clicking here

Grab & Go is a program that works to provide local school children with food during the summer vacation months when access to school lunch and outreach assistance is not available.  The program is made possible by the efforts of volunteers led by local resident, Pat Sorensen.  She and her organization work tirelessly to help our students and families that face food security issues.  We ask that you consider making a donation to this worthwhile effort.  

The program runs on Thursdays and Fridays from June 28th through August 31st.  Dover High School is a distribution site with food available in the front lobby from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm on Thursdays and 5:15 pm to 6:00 pm on Fridays.

Dear Dover High School Community,

For many local children the coming summer vacation weeks will mean days of prolonged hunger.  Thirty percent of Dover's school children are eligible for free or reduced lunch and hundreds of pre-school children suffer from food insufficiency as well.

Grab & Go summer food program, now in its fourth year, is preparing for this year’s first distribution in late June.  Run entirely by volunteers, Grab & Go served 85 children at 2 sites in its first year.  This summer we expect to distribute weekend food bags to 400 children at 15 sites. 

Your generous financial gifts made it possible for us to distribute over 4000 food bags in past years.  May we count on your continuing support this year to insure a healthy summer for Dover’s children?  Please make your tax deductible gift payable to Grab & Go and mail it to:

Warmest thanks,

                    2018-2019  Transportation- Parent Drop Off

We encourage students to take the bus and car pool to alleviate traffic and delays due to the volume of traffic in the area around morning drop off and afternoon dismissal.  Our proximity to the Dover Middle School and the limited ability of the infrastructure to handle the volume of traffic present at these times makes travel through the Durham Road/Route 108 and Bellamy Road corridors difficult at best.  This situation will at times be compounded by continued construction and demolition activities on the Dover High School campus.  If you are dropping your students off and/or picking them up, you must use Parking Lot A (not the bus access road) in front of the old school.  Because of the temporary nature of the parking lot in front of the new school, students cannot be dropped off or picked up there.  For the safety of our students, students are not to be dropped off or picked up anywhere along Alumni Drive. For Parking Lot A, the entrance is on the Durham Road/Route 108 end of the lot and the exit is on the Bellamy Road end of the lot.



Don't forget, New Hampshire is a hand-free driving state.  Anyone under 18 is prohibited from using any mobile device when driving, hands free or not, except to report an emergency.
