Principal's Message

We are learning new routines and becoming familiar with our new teachers as we start the 2016-2017 school year. We are using Social Skills to be model citizens at DCA and earn Comet Cash.

    Every Thursday is a minimum day. 

    All students are released at 1:45.

    All events are listed in the DCA Calendar so be sure to check for beginning of year activities.

    We have an early release day every Thursday. Students are dismissed at 1:45.  


    Most students walk to and from school. Please be patient with picking up your children, follow the directions of the adults directing traffic and be assured that you will get out of the parking lot in 10-15 minutes.  Stay in your car and follow in one of the two lanes. Once you get to the front of the school office, the supervising adults will bring your child to the car.


    If you allow your child to ride a bicycle, make sure he/she uses a helmet and has a chain and lock to secure the bicycle in our designated area.
