*Hot weather is here!  After Spring Break, we are no longer going to allow students to wear hoodies, flannel shirts, vests, and other articles of clothing over their uniform.   We will still allow students to wear button up or zipper sweatshirts that DO NOT contain graphics.  Students may also wear a long sleeve shirt under the polo shirt.  In addition, students must remove outer garments  at a staff member's request. 

* ALL current DSUSD students entering 7th grade must provide proof of a Tdap immunization booster to their child’s school before the start of the 2016-17 school year. All new students entering grades 7-12 must provide the same proof. Students who do not meet this requirement will not receive their school registration packet and school schedule and will not start school. Parents are advised to start presenting their child’s Tdap immunization record to the school site as soon as they have received the vaccination.  

If your child is in need of the Tdap immunization, please contact your private physician or the Riverside County Public Health Department Immunization Clinic (760-863-8283). Please do not delay the start of your child’s 2016-17 school year.

* Spring Break is during the week of April 10th – April 14th.
