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.

Hello Day Creek Families,

Great news, Peter Pan is almost here. Our fantastic, musical production will be February 26 and 27 at 7:00 PM in the MPR. Tickets will be on sale in the office to the general public February 18 for $5.00. Tickets at the door will be $7.00 if available.

We are nearing the end of second trimester. Report cards will be mailed home on February 13th. Our last trimester begins on February 10th. We have a packed February including a Family Fitness Night on February 11th and our long awaited musical production of Peter Pan on February 26th and 27th. Tickets for the musical go on sale on February 17th. This will be a spectacular show. CJSF will be visiting CSUSB on February 13th. PE is hosting a rally for students who earned a 3.6 or higher at the end of trimester 2, it will be tons of fun. Our character trait for February is compassion; Rachel's Challenge will be making poster for Wounded Warriors this month to show our compassion for all they have done for our country. We will bring in spring at the end of the month with our Spring Pictures.

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.
