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.

Message from the Principal

We have made it to the end of our first marking period. Progress reports are heading your way. Remember, you can always follow your student’s grades online through our ESPRI portal. If you need help accessing this tool, you may call your student’s teacher and they can help you log on to monitor grades. We are well on our way to a great year.
Speaking of a great year…I have loved seeing so many Watch D.O.G.S. and other parent volunteers on campus. Thank you for all the support. Our parents continue to support us in ways that we are so grateful for. Our first attempt at a donation only fundraiser was a huge success. We were able to raise about $24,000 with the generous contributions from so many of our Day Creek Families. We are delighted that this is pure profit for our student body account that can be used to directly support programs and activities at Day Creek to continue to make us stand out in a crowd. We really are off to a terrific start and we look forward to a successful 2014-15 school year. Thank You All!

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.
