Announcement from the Wellness Center:

The Wellness Center can schedule Fall sports physicals (SPE) any time after April 1st and they will count for all of the 2019-2020 school year!  Any student that receives an SPE by 6/7 , will be put into a drawing to win a $20 Wawa gift card.


To get physicals done here, the student must

  1. be a “member” (one packet for parents to fill out but good for their whole time at Delcastle- so not necessary if student is already a member/has had their physical done here before) – the packet can be downloaded here for any students and parent who would like to join in order to get a physical – Delcastle Registration Packet 3-21-19

  2. Have a sports physical form dated on or after April 1st and completely filled out and signed (there are 7 places for parents to sign – if any one of these is missing the physical will be rescheduled)

  3. When the SPE form is completed, the student needs to bring it into the Wellness Center and schedule an appointment for the physical.

  4. Come to the appointment as scheduled – we send out reminders the morning of the appointment on Schoology and they receive an appointment card when they schedule.

We are closed for 6 weeks this summer and back on July 31st —-but we will have very limited hours until we are full time again on August 19th. We have less time to do the SPE’s this summer with the earlier start date, so students in grades 9-11 should make appointments now.  Students who do not contact us until the summer may not be scheduled until September.

Please contact the Wellness Center if you have any questions.

Respect Campaign 2019

Delcastle is starting our 3rd annual Respect campaign (formerly called Spread the Word) for Special Olympics Delaware. We are pledging to use the R- word, RESPECT. We all know that our language affects our attitudes. Attitudes impact our actions. We are promoting making friends and being kind.

How Can Students and Families Participate?

The Unified Club will be selling t-shirts during all lunches from February 7th through the 15th.  Shirts are $6.00 and are navy blue 100% heavy cotton.  They are available in the following sizes: 

Adult: S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X


Youth: Y-SM, Y-MD, Y-LG

You can fill out this linked Order Form and send it to school.  Payments must be cash or cashier checks only.  Students can submit orders to staff working the tables at lunches or in sealed envelopes marked to the attention of Ms. Humphrey.  In order for the school to submit the whole order, students and families must submit individual orders by February 15th.  Once the shirts arrive, we will deliver them with a slip of paper that will have a reminder of what day to wear your shirt (the National Day is 3/6/19).

This year we are trying to make it clear within our building and our district that we nurture an environment where everyone is welcome and valued. We are accepting orders from all staff, students, families, and community partners.  We encourage everyone to make their pledge and sign our banner, which we will display in the lunchroom on Wednesday, March 6th.

A Message from

Yvette Santiago, President

New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District Board of Education

December 17, 2018

Victoria C. Gehrt, Superintendent of the New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District since 2011, has announced her plan to retire effective July 1, 2019, after 30 years of service to the school district and a total of 48 years as a Delaware and Pennsylvania educator.

The school district operates four comprehensive Career and Technical high schools in New Castle County – Delcastle Technical High School, Hodgson Vo-Tech High School, Howard High School of Technology, and St. Georges Technical High School, with a total enrollment of 4,700 students in grades 9 – 12. Additionally, the district also operates an adult and alternative education division serving approximately 2,000 students.

On behalf of the NCC Vo-Tech Board of Education, I first want to thank Dr. Gehrt for her leadership and years of service and I also want to thank you for your continued support of our Career and Technical Programs, our schools, and must importantly, our students. Your commitment helps to ensure that high quality and effective educational programs are provided for all students, and we could not do it without you.

In that spirit of partnership, the NCCVT school board is soliciting input as we begin the search for the next school district superintendent. The Board of Education would like to hear your ideas about skills and attributes you think are important as we review potential candidates for the superintendent’s position.

Please send comments to superintendentsearch@nccvt.k12.de.us or mail directly to:
