First Day of School for Students Delayed

Dear Duquesne Families and Community,

Over the summer months there have been several construction projects at Duquesne Elementary School designed to upgrade the district’s facilities and provide a safe learning environment for our students. These projects and upgrades are nearly completed. To give the construction crews more time to complete their work and vacate the building, the first day of school for students will be delayed by four business days. Below are the new back to school dates for Duquesne elementary and middle school students:

New Dates

  • Tuesday, September 7 – First Day of School – Grades 1-7
  • Tuesday, September 7 – Orientation – PreK and K
  • Wednesday, September 8 – First Day of School – PreK and K

Please contact the district at 412-466-5300 if you have any questions. If you would like to enroll your child, please contact us at 412-466-9600, ext 7032.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we upgrade our district’s facilities.


Dr. Sue Mariani
Duquesne City School District
