WHO CAN GO TO D-NOW?
All students currently in grades 6-12 are eligible to attend D-NOW.
CAN STUDENTS BRING PHONES TO D-NOW?
Cell phones are not allowed at all at DNOW 2024. A major goal of this event is to remove distractions, and cell phones can often be our biggest distractions of all. Cell phone numbers for Greenwood Students’ Leadership Team are available in the case of emergencies. In the case of an emergency, our GSM Leadership Team needs to be aware of what is going on. At all times, for any reason, students may ask to use leaders' phones to contact parents. PLEASE DO NOT send your student with a cell phone, even for emergencies. Students are instructed to notify GSM leadership of any issues and we will contact parents. Visible cell phones throughout the weekend of DNOW will be taken up and will not be returned until it is possible to hand the phone directly to a parent. If you have any questions about cell phones, please let Jon or Ty know.
