Traffic & Parking Reminders - Please help our students and families stay safe 
When dropping off and picking up students please remember these important safety reminders.  This is to ensure our students at Diamond Creek are safe.

1. Both our small and large loops are drop off loops only. These are not areas to park even if it is before school begins.  Please stay in your car and drop your child off if you are going through the loop. If you need to park and get out of your car, please park in our parking lot or on the street.

2. Supervision on campus begins at 8:45 when our gates open. If you do not want your child waiting outside by the gates, please park on the street or in the parking lot.  Please do not park in the loop waiting for the bell to ring. 

2. Stay off of cell phones while driving through our bus loops.

3. When pulling in to the loop, pull all the way up.  Stopping in the middle of our loops stops the rest of our traffic from being able to move through quickly and safely.

4.  Please use the crosswalk areas to walk onto campus.  Walking through our bus loops is not safe. We have safety patrol specifically set up to help everyone cross safely.

5. Our loops are single lane only.  Please do not double park or create two lanes to drop students off in the morning.  It is not safe for our students to be walking through cars to get to the sidewalk areas.

Thank you for your help with these reminders.

DADS & DONUTS - February 18 @ 8:15-8:45 am
We are continuing to love having our Father Figures as WATCH D.O.G.S. at Diamond Creek! WATCH D.O.G.S is an innovative father involvement, educational initiative of the National Center for Fathering.  The goal of WATCH D.O.G.S is to provide positive role models for students through the presence of fathers supporting education in our school. It is also a way for us to increase school safety by having extra sets of eyes and ears throughout the building.  We will be hosting a donuts with dads event to explain more information about this great program and allow our Dads to sign up for days for the remainder of the school year. If you have attended one of our events before, the information will be very similar, but you are still welcome to attend with your child(ren).

Who: Father Figures of DC Students & Students
What: Donuts w/ Dads 
When: Tuesday, February 18th @ 8:15-8:45 AM
Where: Diamond Creek Multi Purpose Room
Why: to re-kick off this great program, allow our Dads & Father Figures to learn about WATCH D.O.G.S and sign up for WATCH D.O.G.S. days throughout the school year AND...FREE DONUTS!!

Liquid Volume in 4th Grade

WATCH D.O.G.S. is a Father Figure involvement program that is offered to schools around the Nation. We are so happy to have this wonderful program at Diamond Creek.  Our WATCH D.O.G.S. are invited to spend a day with our students and staff at Diamond Creek helping in classrooms, at recess, lunch and around the building.  We will always make sure your schedule has time in your child(ren) classrooms as well as other classrooms around the building.  If you have more questions about this wonderful program, please email Mrs. Garcia.  If you are interested in volunteering to be a WATCH D.O.G. please fill out this form with your available date.
