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.

Finally, we have an occasional chill in the air as the holiday season quickly approaches. Students have made it through first trimester with great success. Over 800 students celebrated with Renaissance Rewards provided at lunch time for earning a 3.0 or above. Our Halloween Bash was a huge success once again this year. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped this happen. We had over 700 students stay for the event and nearly 60 volunteers help at booths to keep our kids entertained while they waited for their turn in the Haunted Maze created by Mr. Brubaker and Mr. Kushin. Many thanks to all involved.

We will be participating in "Anti-Bully" activities during November. We always want to remind our kids that acts of kindness and supporting each other is the behavior we encourage at Day Creek. We have several activities to promote kindness and remind students that bullying is never tolerated.

As we move into the final weeks before the half-way point in the school year, remember to check in with your student often to see how they are doing. ESPRI is available 24/7 to access course performance. If you ever need help logging in, please contact your teacher or the office and we are glad to help.

Enjoy the fall leaves and the cooler weather.

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.

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.
