The Family Handbook is intended to outline the expectations of the school and how it operates. It should not be considered an exhaustive document. There are many aspects of a school that take shape and change as a year progresses; unexpected and unpredictable issues inevitably arise.
The administration and the board reserve the right to use their discretion to make decisions on those types of situations that may not be specifically addressed in the handbook or in policies. Those decisions will be based on their experienced judgment, customs of the school, commonly accepted norms of social and educational institutions, law, common sense, and what is in the best interest of the entire DLS community. The board and administration also reserve the right to update, revise or add policies and rules at anytime during the year when the need arises.
