Hello Families,

Third trimester is in full swing. The blossoms are beautiful on our trees up Day Creek and Spring Break is quickly approaching. Students are all working so hard on their academics and will have an opportunity to show how much they have learned this year on our next round of iReady Assessments. Sooner than we know, we will be at State Testing(CAASPP)again as well at the end of April.

The month of March brings a kick-off for our Pennies for Patients fund raiser. We took second place last year out of all the participating schools, raising over $14,000 in two weeks, to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We will begin a GATE session on water color art, CJSF will have their final trimester induction meeting, incoming 6th graders and their parents will be visiting for orientation on March 16th. Also we will enjoy a all school color rally on March 18th to welcome our week off which is from March 21-25th. Our activities continue to bloom at DCIS along with the flowers on the trees. Spring is a great time of year for DCIS students, staff and families.

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.
