Coyote Country

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 are on the final six week rotation of the 2013-14 school year. Progress reports went home with students on April 4. This is an important time to keep track of your student’s progress toward their end report card. Some students find it hard to stay focused for the final inning. You may always check your student’s progress on ESPRI at any point to see that they are staying current on their work and studying for tests. Your teachers and administrators are also available for any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you on April 30th for Open House from 5:30-7:00. We are adding a live band to our festivities this year.
Some activities students have to look forward to are our fieldtrips to Riley’s Farm (8th), Renaissance Faire (7th), Magic Mountain (band 8th), High Honor Roll Field Trip (all 3.6 and above for 2 trimesters), John’s Incredible Pizza (6th) just to name a few. We will also invite our 120 students who have maintained a 4.0 for 3 consecutive trimesters to a celebration dinner on April 23. We are so proud of all of our students.
Congrats to our 8th grade promotion speech winners: Samantha Burger, Grace Yang and Juan Luis Garcia. If you have an 8th grade student promoting, you will have the pleasure of hearing these amazing young speech givers.

Battle of the Books

Students must have finished 14 books by January 24th. BOB Party for students who meet the January 24th deadline will be held in the Library, after school on January 31st. We currently have 75 students who met the last deadline. We hope to see you all back for the celebration on the 31st.

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.

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.

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.
