Day Creek Intermediate School opened its doors for students in the Etiwanda School District in August 2004. We are located in the northwest quadrant of the district's boundaries and educate sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Approximately 1,200 students from the city of Etiwanda and neighboring communities are enrolled at our school. Our school vision centers on the belief that failure is not an option and we encourage you to join us in supporting our students to help shape their future.

Day Creek Family and Friends,
We are heading in to our annual Bully Prevention Week November 17-21st. We have several activities planned to encourage a safe and inviting school culture for all of our students. Of course we encourage this every day of the year, but this week will focus on bringing anti-bullying to the foreground.

Calendar of Activities for the Week of November 17
Spirit Dress Days
Monday - Put name-calling to bed! Students wear pajama pants to school
Tuesday - Hats off to kind friends! Students may wear any kind of hat
Wednesday - School Color/Pride Day! Students show their pride by wearing school spirit wear or burgundy and gold
Thursday - Everyone Counts Day! Students wear jerseys or shirts with numbers
Friday - Catch the Wave of Kindness! Students wear tropical attire

We will also have a door decorating contest, poster contest, blue ribbon day, and acts of kindness awarded and recognized throughout the week.

Our goal is to continually make Day Creek a safe and inviting place for all of our Coyotes. We must stop bullying by working together as a community. Please visit the link on the sidebar (Bully Prevention) to find a few resources to help understand bullying.

Tdap Vaccination
Click here for more information
California regulations require all next year’s seventh grade students to have a pertussis vaccine booster, called a Tdap, before the 2013-2014 school year begins. Official proof of a Tdap or DTP immunization, after the age of 7, is required before a student may receive books, class assignments or begin school next year.

Please provide proof of the immunization to the school office as soon as possible. Students who have not provided official proof of the Tdap immunization will NOT be allowed to begin seventh grade next fall.

For information about obtaining the vaccine, check with your physician or clinic, or call the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health clinic at 1- 800- 722-4777. If you have questions, please call your schools health office.

Solicitation near campus

Once or twice a year, a handful of missionaries from local church groups visit the neighborhood and attempt to hand out religious literature. The laws prohibit them from distributing materials on school property, but since they are on public sidewalks they may distribute literature to the public. They are respectful of our students and they do not block students from walking or say anything if the student declines the information. We will address this situation during our morning student announcements to remind students that they have the right to say "no, thank you" to anyone handing out materials or flyers on the sidewalks around school.

Traffic Snarls

Parents may drop-off students along the curb in our parking lot; however, you may want to explore the new city passenger loading zones created along the east and west side of Day Creek Blvd in addition to the existing passenger loading zones along the southside of Coyote Dr. We also offer early campus supervision with gates opening at 7:15 AM. Talk with your child about the safe routes on and off our campus and make a plan that works for you and your family using all of the options available to you.
