Faculty and staff are all a buzz when an emergency meeting is called on campus. As members filtered into the auditorium Monday afternoon for the 3:15 p.m. sharp appointment, conversations about students, classrooms and activities filled the air. But as Superintendent Kenneth Baca took the microphone and began to praise the virtues the nearly 20-year history of DVHS, one thing was undeniable in the silence of the room.
