Principal's Message


This message is to update you about our guidance position here at DES. We are still currently looking for a full time counselor to join our awesome team. If you know of anyone looking for a counselor position please have them apply on SchoolSpring or reach out to me directly.

While we continue our search, we will have the amazing counselors from BHVS and NHCS supporting our students starting this week. Each Thursday morning, Kathleen Connor from BHVS will be supporting our 2nd, 3rd and 4/5 guidance classes. Each Thursday afternoon, Kirsten Tilton from NHCS will be supporting our K and 1st guidance classes. We have also teamed up with our social worker Jenn Kastick to host office hours twice a week here at DES. She will serve as a support to all students who need a check-in or a trusted adult to talk with. Jenn Kastick will be here on Tuesdays and Fridays.

We thank all these incredible staff members in our district who are stepping up to support DES and our students during this time.

If you have any questions please reach out.

Thank you,

Norma Ross
