Beginning January 9, 2013, Derrick Thomas Academy will have new school hours. All students will have the same beginning and ending times for school. School will start at 7:25 a.m. and end at 2:55 p.m. New bus routes have been placed in the mail. Please do not drop your child off before 7:25 a.m. Students will be considered tardy after 7:35 a.m. Students who are parent pick-up will be released between 2:55 and 3:05 p.m. Parent pick-up students must have a note signed by a parent or guardian. Thank you for your patience as we make these changes.
