Hello Families,

We are nearly entering the third trimester of the school year. February brings excitement to our students, especially our 6th graders. They will be attending camp and creating memories that truly last a lifetime. We also get to take advantage of a long weekend from February 12-15 over President's weekend to rest up and recharge at home or visit friends and family away. Enjoy this long weekend with your students. Our musical is always a highlight of every year and this year Annie will bring magic to our stage. Tickets go on sale February 17. You will not be disappointed if you come out to see this amazing performance by our 6-8 grade students. We also have a very fun night planned for February 17. Family Fun Night will be hosted by Comedy Sportz LA. This show would be expensive to take your whole family to in their venue ($18/ticket), but Day Creek is bringing this opportunity to you and your family at no charge to you! Come on out and don't miss it. Spring pictures are February 24 and we have spirit day on February 26. Our E-waste recycling will be held on February 27, so hold on to those old electronics and help us raise some money. We have a busy and fun month planned - hope to see lots of parents throughout the month.

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.
