WEEKLY NEWS

Hello Trailblazer Families. 

I first want to thank you all for your continued grace, patience and positive belief in our Diamond Creek Teachers, District and Community. We know that change can be challenging but we also know that we make decisions based on what is best for our students. Please make sure that you have received and read the RCSD Reopening Comms 10-16 that was emailed out today. Here is the link in case you have not had a chance to read it.  Update regarding reopening 

If you are interested in changing your child's program selection based on the move to a modified traditional schedule - you need to complete the intra-district transfer request (linked in the reopening document) by Monday 10/19. This is a request not a guarantee.
