Weather Related Announcements
This year we are taking full-advantage of our Campus student system and added a feature that is able to contact all of our parents and staff in a very short period of time for important announcements from school. For late-starts, early-outs and cancellations Mr. Powers will use this system. Cell phone numbers, home phone numbers and other numbers for parents will be called with the notification . Mr. Powers will also contact radio and TV stations as he has done in the past. If you need to update your contact information, please contact the DCHS Office. (more)
Helpful Videos Available
The high school guidance staff and administration has held several help sessions this school year. You may view an archived video of the presentations online. You may also download or view the PowerPoint presentations shared at each. The sessions included information on college credit, financial aid, registration and the Plan test.
New ACT Prep Site Available
Minnesota Career Information System (MnCIS) and the new ACT Online Prep Course and Practice Tests are available to Dassel-Cokato students preparing to take the ACT.
The Online course allows students to take a pretest and then customizes lessons for them based on their pretest results. In addition to test content they also have some very good test strategies.
The other option students have is to take one of 3 practice tests in English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. They can do this timed or untimed.
If students or parents have questions about this program, they should contact Mr. Tool in the HS guidance office.
