Covid Readiness – Air Purifiers & Picnic Tables

Posted Posted in Announcements

The Covid pandemic has presented new challenges for public schools in safely educating our children.  In light of these challenges, the DASH PTSA has purchased 49 air purifiers for all of the school’s classrooms and cafeteria. This was a particularly expensive project for the PTSA.

The PTSA is also working on the purchase of picnic tables/umbrellas to allow students to eat lunch in a comfortable, but socially distanced way. 

We greatly appreciate any and all support for the cost of this important equipment.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the PTSA Board, it is with great excitement and privilege that I welcome you to a new year at DASH. The PTSA’s mission is to have a positive impact on students’ educational and cultural experiences at DASH, and as you will find in the attached, we do this in a variety of ways – most importantly – with your collective support. High on our priority of deliverables is the sharing of key information with parents to help them and their children navigate the ‘twists and turns’ of high school – particularly a high-performance magnet high school with a national reputation for excellence. Outside of the unmatched quality of our teachers and administrators (recently earning the distinction of “Principal of the Year”), this is what separates DASH from the rest: This type of success truly “takes a village” and like any accomplished organization, the PTSA is only as strong as its membership – please consider joining us today. We are taking a very innovative and passionate approach to funding and programing this year and I challenge each of you to think about how you can contribute to your school, as you review the attached materials.

Once again, welcome and please do not hesitate to contact our board members or myself for any reason.

Sunil Ishairzay, President, DASH PTSA
