Dear Parents, Students, and Community,
 
I hope you are enjoying your summer and spending much quality time with family and friends. As you are likely aware, I officially began serving as Deerfield High School principal July 1, 2015. I am very excited about leading Deerfield High School this coming school year and using this summer to learn more about the community and to develop relationships with stakeholders.
 
Although the 2015-2016 school year does not officially begin until the latter part of August, I would like to invite you to stop by DHS anytime between now and then so we can meet one another. I realize many of you are busy this summer but I do have an open door policy during summer months and throughout the school year. If you are on or near campus, please do not hesitate to stop in and say, “Hello.” If you do wish to visit, please call my assistant, Marilena Fiore (224-632-3010), so that your name may be placed on the Visitor’s Calendar.  Due to construction, I am currently housed in the CCRC and occupying Ms. Kristen Doktor’s office. If you would like to reach me, please feel free to contact me at 224-632-3011 or via email at cdignam@dist113.org
 
I am looking forward to serving the DHS community and getting to know you better. I hope you have a safe and wonderful summer. 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Christopher Dignam, Ed.D.
