Dear Falcon Family:
Welcome to Dunedin High School! We are looking forward to partnering with you as we collaborate, support, encourage and share in the responsibility of helping your child achieve in their academic excellence.
We know that you want what is best for your child. We believe that you as parents are a key resource to educational success. We believe that all children can learn and that partnerships with schools, families and community members lead to success.
We will include you in every facet of your child's education. We promise to maintain communication between the home and school. You are the primary educators and we encourage you to volunteer as often as possible. We expect you to participate in school activities at least once per month. Our Parent Teacher/Student Association (PTSA) and School Advisory Committee (SAC) are very active in our students' learning endeavors and they welcome your involvement. As a parent of a Dunedin High School student, it is suggested that you volunteer at least 40 hours of parent participation each year which includes classroom assistance, day and evening events, chaperones for trips, helping in the front office and school events.
With your support, we can share the responsibility for decision making about your child's education and well-being.
Please take the time to review the Success Agreement Form which informs you about the many ways your child can experience success at Dunedin High School.
Please contact Denise Misilmeri, Family Community Volunteer Liaison for information at (727) 469-4100.

Dear Falcon Family:
As the principal of Dunedin High School, I want to take this opportunity to let you know that I am pleased and excited to have your child attend this wonderful school. I am providing the following information to you so you will know what our expectations are and how your child can be successful this school year. Please take the time to discuss the information provided here with your child. Although I am going over this information in school, discussing it with your child will be a meaningful way to increase their understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your grade level administrator. I believe that if we all work together, your child’s success is certain! The purpose of this Success Agreement Form is to teach reading and writing skills that are needed for success in high school.
These expectations are designed to make sure that no student’s behavior interferes with the
learning of others.
1) Come to school every day that you are not sick.
2) Arrive to school on time with the proper materials (textbooks, notebooks, paper, & pen/pencils).
3) Electronic devices (MP3 players, iPods & cell phones) must be turned off and out of sight from 7:00 AM to 1:50 PM.
4) Follow dress code policy (Shorts, dresses & skirts must be three inches from the knee or longer).
5) Show respect for school personnel, students & school board property.
We believe that if each student adheres to the above mentioned school-wide expectations, that every child and every teacher will experience success in the classroom. Please print this document and have your child return the completed form to their 1st period teacher during the first week of school.
