  • Wi-Fi Changes

    When we return from Spring Break, our wireless infrastructure will have been upgraded. As a result of the change, students will no longer be able to add personal devices to the school's Wi-Fi. Every student should have already checked out a school Chromebook, but for those who haven't the information is located on the Student Technology Help page. Students will not be able to check out a Chromebook without a signed user agreement form located on the page linked above.

  • Senior Prom

    We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a senior prom this year, a Masquerade Ball! In order to make this possible we are putting in place several precautions. All attendees will be required to wear masks and have their temperature checked. Prom ticket sales will only be available to Seniors (remote and in person), but they are allowed to bring a guest- guests can be anyone age 20 or under, however if the guest is not a Dunbar student a guest form must be filled out and returned to the front office by April 9th. All Guest forms can be found here and are available outside of room 606 and in the front office. The event will be held outdoors for maximum ventilation and will take place at Dunbar on Saturday May 22nd from 8-11 pm.

    Tickets will be $25 per person, $50 per couple and can be purchased with cash or check (no credit/debit will be accepted). Please make checks payable to PLD.

    Tickets will be sold outside the main doors of the school from 8:00-8:20 AM and from 3:05-3:30 PM on the following days: Wednesday 3/24, Thursday 3/24, Friday 3/25 and Wednesday 4/7, Thursday 4/8, Friday 4/9.

    Remote learners will have to come during any of these times to purchase tickets in person as we cannot accept remote payments.

    If the above times are not possible for you please reach out to Mrs. Myers or Mrs. Thurston.
