New Student Registration at DSIS

If you are  interested in enrolling your student at DSIS for the 2017-18  school year and the student is in grades 7-12, click here to register for the next information meeting that will take place on Monday, September 25th at 4:45.  If you have trouble accessing the form you can also call the office at 530.757.5333, or email cmartell@djusd.net to register for the meeting.  Please note that this is the first step in enrolling at DSIS.  At this mandatory meeting, parents and students will learn about DSIS and will be able to make a determination as to whether DSIS is a good fit for the student.  Within two days after this meeting, the student will return to DSIS to write a short essay and turn in their application.  Once these two items have been received, the school counselor will schedule meetings with the student, parent and current school counselor to determine what courses the student will take.  The entire process takes two weeks, depending on individual students.  If the student is currently on an IEP or 504, meetings will need to be held before enrollment in DSIS to make sure that DSIS is an appropriate option for the student.

Please do not forget to fill out the online registration, call or email the secretary at cmartell@djusd.net to sign up for the meeting.  Please provide the following information: student name, parent name, grade for the next school year, current school and a phone number that we can call and remind you about the meeting.   Meetings are typically held on the second and fourth Monday of each month.  

If you have a student in grades k-6, please call the office at 530.757.5333, ext. 370 to make an appointment with the counselor Marvie Paulson.

We welcome all prospective students to contact DSIS to see if this is the right program for them.

Please visit our new DJUSD Digital Citizenship Website for more information.  DSIS teachers will be working closely with their students during the rollout of the student gmail accounts.

Safety at DJUSD Schools - Monday, October 16th will be the start of DSIS’ Safety Week. Over the course of that week, students and staff will participate in a series of emergency drills to practice procedures that we would use in an actual urgent situation. As part of that effort, the school district will be sending out a TEST of our Emergency Communication System to the phone numbers, emails and mobile text numbers for emergency contacts for each of our students. The purpose of that “Test Message” is to ensure our parent community understands how, and in what form, you will be messaged in the event of a real emergency and to identify gaps in emergency data that can then be addressed in advance of an urgent event. Important Note For Split Site Parents/Guardians – your student may participate in emergency drills at any of the DJUSD schools that they attend.  Parents/Guardians and Emergency contacts may also receive the emergency alerts for other schools that they attend.  If you receive an automated call, it is very important that you listen to the details so that you can relay any of the information to your children who may be in transit between DJUSD schools.

CONSIDER OPTING IN TO TEXT MESSAGES FOR FUTURE EMERGENCY ALERTS.

If you are new to our school or the school district or haven’t already opted in to receive emergency texts, please consider doing so by texting 67587 from a mobile phone number on record with your student information (on record with our office/included in your online reenrollment.) Learn more about Emergency Texting Service at http://www.djusd.net/txtmsg

 

As a reminder, all emergency and important automated school communications sent through our SchoolMessenger system will be sent from the number 1877-539-7855.  If you call back this number, you are able to access any recent messages sent to you.  We encourage you to save this number in your Contacts or Caller ID as DJUSD Alert/Message. In this way, you will recognize when an emergency alert or important message is being sent to your phone from our school or school district.

 

If you have any questions, please contact our office or reach out directly to the DJUSD  Public Information Officer Maria Clayton at mclayton@djusd.net

Important Peanut Allergy Information from the School Nurse:

This letter is to inform you that a student in your child’s school has a severe peanut/nut allergy.  Strict avoidance of ingestion or contact with peanut/nut products is the only way to prevent a life-threatening allergic reaction.  We are asking for your assistance in providing a safe school environment for all students.  To reduce the risk of exposure the classrooms and library will be peanut/nut free.  Please do not send any peanut/nut products for your child or others to eat for lunch, snack, or special treats.  If your child has eaten peanuts or nut products before school, please be sure your child’s hands have been thoroughly washed prior to arriving in the classroom.  Thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any concerns or need additional information, please contact me. Sincerely, Laura Bork, RN, BSN School Nurse (Korematsu, Holmes, DSIS)

What Inspires DSIS Students?

Have you ever wondered what inspires DSIS students to do such great work?  We have posed that very question to DSIS students and staff and the office bulletin board is slowly getting inspirational messages.  We encourage every student to exercise their voice and thoughts by submitting something that touches or inspires them.  This board is quickly becoming a source of inspiration, please help us keep the board growing!

Dropping Students off at DSIS

The parking lot at DSIS/District Office is a very busy place.  There is constant traffic with staff and visitors coming and going.  Last year we had close encounters where people driving in the parking lot almost hit students who were being dropped off or picked up.  We understand the frustrations of trying to find a parking spot or a place to drop or pick up your student.  In order to keep your students safe, we are asking parents/guardians to drop your children off for DSIS classes in front of the building along B Street.  This will help to decrease congestion in the parking lot area and will also keep your children safe as they will not have to walk in the parking lot.  There is two hour parking in front of DSIS/District Office on B street where you can pull over to drop your child off or wait for your child.  Two hour parking is also available along C street.

Also remember that the parking lot at DSIS/District Office has very few visitor parking spots.  All other parking spots are reserved for staff.  Please make sure that you only park in a visitor spot and do not block access to any of the reserved spots.  The area in front of the bike racks should not be used as a parking and/or waiting spot as we need this spot for emergency vehicles.
