Principal's Memo - Week 11

DIAMOND BAR HIGH SCHOOL

WEEK 11 – October 21 – October 26

 

Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians, 

 

Welcome to Week Eleven.

As we approach the holidays I would like to take a moment and remind all Brahmas of the importance of class attendance. Being present at school prior to the start of the holidays, and immediately after is critical for your student's learning and success. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after holidays. Just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your student behind in school. Please make sure your student is in school every day, right up until vacation starts. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning. 😊

Speaking of the holidays, this year's fall play, Peter and the Starcatcher is a perfect way to get ready for the holiday season! The first show opens this Friday, October 25 and runs through Saturday, November 2 (all shows are at 7pm). Mr. Jared Kaitz (Drama Director) says, “This hilarious play is the prequel to the famous story,Peter Pan, by J.M. Barry and good for all ages!” Click HERE to get tickets online!

Important Updates from our GLCs and the Guidance Office

  • Senior Bulletin Click HERE!
  • Halloween is approaching, and as always, we will allow students to show their Halloween spirit, but there are some guidelines we must follow to ensure student safety: 
  • Students are prohibited from wearing masks
  • Make-up or face painting should be minimal. Staff needs to still be able to EASILY identify a student wearing make-up or face painting. If your face is fully painted, you will be required to wash your face before attending classes.
  • Weapons or replica weapons are not allowed
  • Costumes need to adhere to the school dress code and should not disrupt the instructional program during school hours. If you have ANY questions regarding your costume, please see your GLC before Halloween for guidance or approval. Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to a fun and safe Halloween on campus.
