A message from our Executive Director


Hello to the Darrell Lynn Hines Academy staff, students, and families,


I am reaching out concerning the recent development with the closing of schools in the State of Wisconsin. At this time the Governor has mandated that all schools be closed until further notice. We didn’t imagine we would be experiencing something of this magnitude during this time in our lives. This has brought many unanswered questions for families across Wisconsin. As updates from the State becomes available, we will look to keep families informed as quickly as possible. Governor Evers did what he thought was best for the protection of students and families against the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We understand that this virus is spreading quickly, and they wanted to ensure our students were safe. We must trust that the state along with the Department of Public Instruction are working to solve issues that will result from this closing. 


I understand this brings about many questions as it relates to graduation ceremonies, diplomas, and finishing out the year for our Darrell Lynn Hines Academy students. The administrative team will be discussing these issues and possible scenarios as more information becomes available from the Department of Public Instruction and Governor Evers. We will keep families informed through our website as well as our DLH Academy phone alert messaging system. Let’s all continue praying for our City, State and the nation at large. I pray God’s hand and blessings be upon you and your family during this time.



Precious Washington
