Personal Items & Medications Pick up
Plus borrow books from our library for the summer! (click)

Pickup dates are being arranged for student belongings, medications & library books to be borrowed.

Dunbar Students - To put books on hold, follow these directions:

Sign in and go to your Google Classroom for Specials -  ASAP!  Before May 31.
In the Library/Media class section, you will find directions for putting books on hold using Destiny DISCOVER. There are written & video directions there.  The lesson tells you to put up to 15 books on hold and how many books you may borrow, based on your grade level. We will work to get you as many as we can up to the limit, but can't guarantee you will get everything you want.

Watch this space for updated information and news about returns and possible new dates for more summer reading pickup.

Parent Information

Welcome to Dunbar Hill

As we transition to distance learning and connecting with our teachers and classes online, you may find you have questions about logging in or connecting to Google Classroom. All Dunbar Hill parents should have received -- or will be receiving soon -- their child(ren)'s login information from the district. If you have problems logging in, you can contact our Dunbar Hill Media Specialist, Mrs. Church via email at  The district will be providing help for technical problems, but questions about logins and using Google Classroom can be directed to Mrs. Church.

** Note: make sure that follows your child's name info in the username to log into Google. For instance, is a complete username. Hamden Chromebooks often already have entered on the right side of the username box when logging in. **

Videos and directions will be posted and made available soon.  Bear with us as we all make the jump to online learning. Best wishes to all!
