Dayton Middle and High School will be returning to in-person learning on Monday, September 13th. We still have some staff and students who are out with Covid, or in quarantine, but most all of our staff are back. We are thankful for that! I would ask you to continue to stay safe and keep your kids home if they are sick and take precautions to stay well. Enjoy the fair but be safe.
