Karen Stephens is an outstanding person and educational leader that has a tremendous impact on students and staff in Davie County Schools. Under Mrs. Stephens' leadership, students flourish because staff members meet children where they are academically and socially and work together to ensure their success. Teachers willingly take up the challenge to meet the needs of each student because of Mrs. Stephens' leadership and support. After 30 plus years in education, she is still driven by a tremendous work ethic coupled with a passion that makes everyone around her better. These same characteristics have sustained her successful career as a classroom teacher, high school coach and athletic director, and as a school administrator. She continues to be an effective leader and is well deserving to be honored as principal of the year.  Congratulations, Mrs. Stephens!
Please Plan to Vote

October 14 | This was the last day to register to vote in order to be eligible to vote in the November 8 election. You may check your registration here. Information on how to register to vote may be found here

October 20 | Early in person voting began. You may find out where to vote here

November 1 | This was the last day to request absentee voting by mail.

November 8 | Election Day!

Preregistration for 16 and 17-year-olds: One of the lesser publicized provisions of the 2013 voter ID law ended voter preregistration for 16 and 17-year-olds. Now that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down those 2013 restrictions, preregistration is back and our 16 and 17-year-olds can now preregister to vote. Students may preregister to vote in the Guidance Office at Davie County High School or any of the other locations listed here.
DCECHS Makes the Club

Congratulations to the Davie County Early College High School for achieving a 100 percent graduation rate for 2015-2016! DCECHS was recognized by NCDPI as part of the 100 Percent Club. This award is given to schools achieving a 100 percent four-year cohort graduation rate and have 10 or more students in their cohort.

Inclement Weather

Davie County Schools may make the decision to close early, to delay, or to cancel school when winter weather makes driving conditions hazardous. We will make every reasonable effort to make announcements by 6:00 AM. If we are in the middle of several days of bad weather and a decision can be made in the evening, we will do so.  

To communicate how inclement weather has affected our normal school operation, the School Messenger telephone notification system will be used to announce schedule changes to all parents, students, and staff. School Messenger will begin calling parents and students at 6:00 AM, but it takes some time for the system to call the homes of all 6,500 children.  

The message will also be available on the Davie County Schools' Message Line (336-753-1797 for English; 336-753-1798 for Spanish). In addition, announcements will be made on the local radio and television stations listed below and communicated through the Davie County Schools’ website, Facebook and Twitter. If no announcement is made, schools will operate on a normal schedule. If an announcement is made, it is applicable to those students and staff scheduled to report that day.

  • WXII, Winston-Salem, Channel 12 TV
  • WGHP, High Point, Channel 8 TV
  • WFMY, Greensboro, Channel 2 TV
  • WXLV, Greensboro, Channel 45 TV
  • Carolina News, Channel 14 TV
  • WTQR, Winston-Salem, 104.1 FM radio
  • WSJS, Winston-Salem, 600 or 1200 AM radio
  • WSIC, Statesville, 1400 AM radio
  • WDSL, Mocksville, 1520 AM radio
  • WSGH, Winston-Salem, 1040 AM radio (Spanish)

Weather conditions sometimes become unfavorable during the day after children have arrived at school. In the event we have to dismiss early, a School Messenger notification will be sent to all parents, and local radio and TV stations will make the announcement. Working parents are advised to make arrangements for childcare on days when schools must be dismissed early.

Please check the media sites listed above, call our message line, or visit our website for weather related information. Please do not call individual schools, the central administrative office, or the news media for weather closing or delay updates; during these times, we want to keep our lines open for other school related communication. We will communicate closings, delays, and early dismissals as quickly as possible. Our primary concern is the safety of children and our staff.  

Thank you for your continued support!
Be a Part of History!

We are excited to open the new Davie County High School in the fall of 2017! The Brick Fundraiser is a way for our community to support the new school and be a part of history. Funds raised will be used for outdoor furniture for the courtyard, as well as the concession stand/restroom area for baseball and softball fields.
