Chess Club Volunteers

We have all of the supplies to start up a Chess Club during the lunch hours, however, we need parent volunteers to be in charge of it.  If you would be interested in helping DCIS start up a Chess Club please call the office.

 

 

Student Safety - end of day
At the end of the day please wait in the lobby for your students or check in through the office before entering the rest of the building.

 

Long Distance Phone Numbers

Please give us a local phone number as a contact number for your child.  The cost of long distance calls weighs heavily on our budget.  This would help us immensely.
 

 

Calendars on Teacher Websites

If one of your child's teachers uses the 'calendar' on their website, you can click on the button at the top of the calendar  that says "Subscribe".  This button will allow you to receive an alert email every time the teacher adds, deletes, or changes something on their calendar.

Attendance

Attendance is very important to the academic success of your children.  Please help us with this by having your students here and on time.  If your student is absent please call the attendance line @ 715-9851 and leave us a detailed message.

Lunch Accounts
  • Every Wednesday afternoon, after lunch, emails will be sent out regarding school lunch account balances. This email comes directly from CNS and is generated through NutriKids, it will go out via email for student accounts that are below $6.00 as a courtesy to let them know they have a low account balance. This will ensure ALL students have at least two days of lunch money available in their accounts before the account goes negative. Anyone who has a negative balance will also receive an email regarding their account. It is a School Board policy that ALL accounts that reach a negative balance of -$13.25 at all elementary schools, DCIS and DCMS or -$15.00 at DCHS that the students will receive an alternate lunch which is a cheese sandwich, fruit and a milk until funds are received on the account.   

     

    VERY IMPORTANT: Balances can be seen anytime on www.MySchoolBucks.com or through the My School Bucks App., which is free.  

  • Cell Phone Policy
    1st Offense:  Phone taken to office, parent notified, student may pick up at end of day
    2nd Offense:  Phone taken to office, parent notified, parent must pick up
    3rd Offense:  Phone taken to office, parent notified, parent must  pick up and phone may not be brought back to school

      Our school is open to students at 7:15.  Please do not drop them off earlier as we do not have staff available to supervise them until that time. 

    • When dropping students off please note we have two lines.  When you come to the front of the building you will see a crosswalk by the gym and one at the front of the building.  If your car is stopped between these two lines, that is our unloading zone.  Please unload when you are between these lines.  Waiting until you get directly in front of the building entrance delays those behind you.  The sooner we can get the students out of the cars and safely on the sidewalk, the quicker we can get you back on the road. 
    • If you are not going through the line, then you MUST walk your child to the door.  We do not allow students to cross the parking lot alone.  Please use the crosswalks to come to the building.  We want everyone to be safe.  
    • There is a space between the two car lines and that is for my staff and me to direct students from the cars and for the students to safely pass to the sidewalk.   DO NOT drive in this lane.   
    • When exiting our parking lot, we ask that you only turn right during the times posted.  This helps us to keep the lines moving.  Remember you will encounter high school traffic beginning around 7:30.  
    • If you are picking your child up, please remind them to watch for you.  They sometimes get busy visiting and don’t notice that you are in the pickup space.  We will continue to try and help the students to watch, but your help is needed as well.  
    • Above all, please watch for students and parents in the parking lot.  Keep your speed low and be patient as we assist everyone through the line and parking lot.

     

     

          If you are coming into our building during the day, please remember to go to the office first and check in.  You will need a pass in order to walk through our halls.  If you forget, don’t be offended or surprised if our staff asks you to go to the office and get a pass.   Also if you are coming to have lunch with your child, you must also check in the office first.   Please remember you can only bring lunch for your own child.  We have several students with food allergies, so we cannot share food or provide food for other children.  In the event of a birthday, you can ask students to join you, but they must have their own food.
