Open House + Homecoming Week
Open House 9/2
Doss HS will host a VIRTUAL Open House TOMORROW evening from 5:30-7:30 pm. This event will be online only, due to Covid restrictions and the complications it presents around opening our building to the public.

Homecoming 9/7 - 9/10
Our homecoming football game is next Friday, 9/10.  Due to our Covid restrictions and protocols, we are not able to hold a pep rally or dance at this time.  We made the decision to have homecoming next week to ensure that our students get to have some sort of school spirit and celebration.  
We are going to have our dress down days next week as follows:
 
Tuesday - PJ Day
Wednesday - Dynamic Duo/Twin Day
Thursday - Jersey/Sports Day
Friday - Spirit Day/Academy Shirts Day
