Dover High School Alma Mater

Through the four happy years of our pilgrimage
Mid scenes we love so well
On her name and her fame and her history
We always love to dwell
Loyalty true, we pledge anew;
so we sing, and we cheer, with a song
for Dear Old Dover High.
—-L. Bowlby and L. Hinkle

From the Superintendent

As you are probably well aware, concerns regarding clowns have been escalating through social media outlets and news reports. This week, some towns in Morris County have received “clown threats” via postings on the Internet. Many of our students, particularly those in the lower elementary grades, have expressed fear about clowns in and around their schools.

We want to reassure our school community that, although we have not been able to verify a similar threat, we take these concerns very seriously. We are communicating with the Dover Police Department about this issue. The Dover Police will provide an increased presence around our schools in an effort to diminish fears. In addition, our administrators and teachers are reminding students that they are in a safe environment at all times in our buildings. We will continue to investigate the veracity of rumors and report any information to the local authorities.

Behind the Wheel Driving Instruction

Dover High School cares about the safety of their students, especially when driving. We offer a 6 hour behind the wheel program for Dover High School students that meets all NJ Motor Vehicle Commission regulations at a fraction of the cost of the for profit driving schools. This program is offered on a first come first serve basis due to the limited availability.If you are interested in more information, please email Mr. Daniel Ippolito at dippolito@dover-nj.org
