No Field Entry Friday Night
This Friday night, October 27th, the Panthers will be hosting Groveport Madison at 7 pm in the first round of the OHSAA playoffs.  A sideline pass will be required for anyone standing on the sideline; before – during – and after the game!

For safety and security purposes, as well as this being an OHSAA Playoff game…there will be NO entry onto the track/field area after the game for player(s) families, Darby students, or coaches’ families.  Families and students will be asked to exit the stands onto the concourse area to meet up with players after the game if they so choose.

Senior Name Verification Letters
Letters were recently mailed home to all seniors potentially graduating from Darby, including Online Academy and Tolles students.  These letters REQUIRE a response!  The student’s legal name needs to be verified.  We are required, by law, to print a student’s legal name on their diploma.  There is an option to provide legal documentation of a name change.  You can also indicate if a different name should be printed in the graduation program and read out loud during the ceremony.

All 2022-2023 yearbooks are in the main office awaiting pick up! Please make a plan to get yours as soon as possible.
Did you miss out on buying this awesome yearbook? Extras are also available in the main office while supplies last. They are $90 each cash or checks to HCSD.

ASVAB Test – November 21st
We will be administering the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) Career Exploration Tool on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 @ 7:30am in the Media Center. This optional opportunity is only open to juniors and seniors, and is completely free. This tool is used by our military branches, and one of our military reps will review the results with each student when we return from winter break. This is an awesome opportunity for students that might have an interest in enlisting in a military branch after high school. Please take advantage of this opportunity by signing up in the School Counseling Office with Ms. Clipson. Please see your school counselor or Mr. Anderson with any questions!
