Yearbooks are on sale now!

The DHS yearbook, the Toltec, is created with love each year by students, for students. Buying a copy of the Toltec is a great way to remember your time as a Demon for years to come. Students may not realize the true value until they open it 5, 10, or 20 years later. Don’t miss out!

Check back here throughout the year, as well as on the morning announcements and in the weekly senior email blast, for news and updates.
