Dear Duquesne Community,
The Duquesne City School District would like to express its sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of former district employee and contractor John Joseph. Mr. Joseph served in the district’s maintenance department for many years and was beloved by our students and staff. A resident of McKeesport, Mr. Joseph was a friendly, warm and joyful person, and greatly contributed to the positive environment at our school. His absence will be keenly felt.
Sue A. Moyer,
In recognition of his bravery, in May Arnez was awarded the AAA School Safety Patrol Lifesaving Medal. He was one of only four students in the nation to receive the award this year, and was honored in front of his classmates during an assembly. In the last 99 years, the award has been given to only 463 individuals. Earlier this year, Arnez received the Duquesne City School District’s Heroism Award.
The administration is pleased to announce that it has received a $79,279 school safety grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Deliquency's School Safety and Security Committee. The grant will be used to fund school safety initiatives. Go Dukes! #DuquesnePride
