Durham Academy News & Notes

Aug. 17, 2017


Welcome to the first issue of News & Notes of the 2017-2018 school year! This issue of our weekly newsletter focuses on how you can stay connected with DA throughout the year via our news platforms, calendars, Veracross, the DA app and more. As always, reach out to the Communications Office staff with questions and news tips at communications@da.org.

DA App/online directory
keeps you in the know on the go

From classmates' contact information to team schedules and division calendars, the Durham Academy App/online directory has what you need to prepare for and stay organized through the new school year.


Tune in for news of the
everyday extraordinary at DA

Durham Academy's Communications Office wants you to know what's happening at DA, and we share information with our community in three ways: daily through social media posts to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; weekly via this e-newsletter; and
biannually via Durham Academy Magazine.


Veracross is your home base for student info

Want to see you child's schedule at a glance or review progress reports? Need to sign up for an Extended Day program? Looking for college counseling forms? Look no further than your Veracross Parent Portal!


How to keep up with the Cavaliers

Can't get enough of the Cavs? Durham Academy's website, the DA App and athletics social media channels provide on-demand information on DA's athletic teams.


Calendar subscriptions offer
a simple way to stay organized

By using Durham Academy's iCal calendar subscriptions, parents, faculty and students can easily add continually updated event feeds — ranging from your child's class schedule or assignments, to division-specific activities and athletic team schedules, to Middle and Upper School rotational calendars — to their calendar client of choice with just a few clicks.


Plug in and listen up for
weather and emergency communication

In the event of a closing or schedule change due to inclement weather or a school emergency, Durham Academy will communicate this information to families in a number of ways.
