Welcome 2016-2017

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.

It is lunch time at camp. The kids enjoyed grilled chicken sandwiches, french fries and potato salad. The weather is a little breezy but mostly sunny. After a little nutrition, the kids will head out for team building and ecology hikes.

Tuesday morning brought many smiles to faces. The kids are happy and ready for morning activities. They will be heading out for adventures after enjoying a good breakfast.

Kids have finished the first three hours of activities! Ropes, squid, archery just to name a few. They are heading to the dining room for a great meal. They have definitely worked up their hunger! Cheeseburger pie has never tasted so good! More pictures are posted on the Sixth Grade Camp Link.

All Busses Arrived Safely at Pali Mountain at about 10:30 AM
Students are having their orientation, lunch and will begin their first activity at 2:00 today.
Weather: 45* and mostly sunny

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.

Student Drop Off

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.
