Summer School

Many of you have either signed yourselves up or have been signed up by your GLC to attend summer school.

 

If you received a D or F in World History, Algebra I, or English II this semester and you GLC has not signed you up then you must report to the theater on the first day of summer school, Monday, June 11th, at 7:30 am, and the summer school staff will sign you up. No student with a D or F in the classes listed above will be turned away.

 

 

GLC Registration Appointment Sign-Ups  

Note: We are using the school provided student gmail account: ID@stu.wvusd.org

  • GLC Registration appointments will be held from July 9th– August 3
  • You can check your school gmail account for an email directing you to Sign Up Genius. All appointments have been made either by you or your GLC. Please check to make sure you are available for that date and time. If not, please delete the appointment and select one in which you can attend. 

 

Grades

The semester grades are permanent marks on your child’s academic record.

  • Foreign Language or Math: If a student has received low marks in either of these two subject areas, they must earn a “C” or better second semester to be allowed to continue to the next highest subject level next year. 
  • If your child has received an “F” in any required class for graduation (example: English, Algebra 1 or World History), the class must be made up during summer school. If your child has multiple classes to make up during summer, there is a ten-credit limit (two, one semester classes) at DBHS. Summer school registration will take place this spring and can be researched by going to https://dbhs.wvusd.k12.ca.us/ .
  • SAC offers some of these classes on their campus which can be made up NOW. Please call or send your child in to see me for this information.

 

New documents posted to our page

Please take some time to review 'College Preparation Checklist' and 'Middle Class Scholarship Brochure'. Both are informative as they relate to college or financial aid. They are provided by the Office of the US Department of Education.

 

Reminder about Dress Code

With the colder months ahead we wanted to remind all students that NO Hoods or Beanie's may be worn. You may wear a hood if it is raining. You may wear a beanie if it is a Diamond Bar High School issued beanie.

  

Sophomore Year

Remember that a student’s UC/CSU GPA is based on grades earned in academic classes taken during tenth and eleventh grades.  Students need to work hard and do their best so they can look back on their sophomore transcript without regret.  If your child looks like he is slipping in an academic class, have him see his GLC about the many free tutoring options available on campus, including CSF drop-in tutoring Monday – Thursday from 3-4:30 in room 602 or 606, or getting a private tutor. All available tutoring is listed on our main 'Guidance' webpage. Click on the link to the right.

 

This is also a good time for your child to start getting involved with both DBHS extracurricular activities and service for the community at large.  It is true that universities like to see well-rounded students but the real benefit of volunteer work is found in the many wonderful ways it impacts us as human beings.  Remember there is no one way to volunteer or participate – encourage your child to seek something he or she has a passion for and get involved!

 

Miscellaneous

Please help your students clear up any absences by writing notes or calling the very next day after an absence.  Your children are responsible for getting their absences cleared the day after an absence and know they will receive discipline for any absences not cleared after that time.  Oversleeping is not recognized as a valid excuse and students who oversleep should expect the consequences associated with unexcused absences.

Cell phones can be a major disruption and safety concern and should be turned off at all times during the school day except lunch and brunch.  Please help us by telling your students to keep their phones turned off and reminding them that they can check messages from you during lunch and brunch.  In case of an emergency, they can easily get in touch with you by going to the attendance office to use the school phone or by seeing their GLC.

 

Please see the school website dbhs.org for all the latest news and announcements. The Bull Sheet is posted there weekly with the announcements the students receive in their classrooms. These announcements have important reminders, deadlines, tryout dates for clubs, activities, and much more.

  

REMIND: We have sent out MANY messages using this app based program and will continue to send out important reminders to the class of 2020 and their parents. To sign up please send a text to the number: 81010  & in the message type in: @dbhs2020. You can also see the document below to receive alerts through other means if you don't want to receive text messages. 

 

DBHS RULES AND EXPECTATIONS: Please read the student handbook/planner to familiarize yourself with campus policies. See the Power Point Presentation below as GLC's have met with all sophomore as part of our Due Process meeting. This meeting allows us to review school rules and expectations. Look for 'Sophomore Due Process Meeting' Power Point Presentation.

  1. COMMUNICATION: Do not hesitate to ask your GLC for help. We are your advocates on campus and are happy to assist you. Most problems that occur on campus could and should be avoided if the students involved simply seek our help first! Please be proactive, not reactive.
  2. ATTENDANCE: Be on time everyday! If you are legally absent from school due to illness or a doctor/dentist appointment, you must bring in a signed note from your parent or legal guardian upon  returning to school. Oversleeping is not a legal excuse to be late or absent. Your parent/guardian must clear the full day absence within 2 days. Period absences (ex :missed 1st period only) must be cleared by brunch the following day. Detentions/SWAPs will be issued if they are not cleared.
Parents can also clear absences by calling the 24 hour attendance number: 909-594-1860

 

  1. HOMEWORK: Completing ALL assignments on a regular basis is essential to success in the classroom. Parents- please take advantage of Parent Portal to monitor grades.
  2. CLOSED CAMPUS: You must never leave campus without permission! If you leave anytime other than your last class, you must sign out through the attendance office. If you arrive to school late, you must sign in with the attendace office.
  3. CELL PHONES & iPODS: Brunch & lunch ONLY! Not passing period. Not during class. Don't do it...you WILL get a SWAP!
  4. DRESS CODE: Please make sure to adhere to the dress code that is on the school website and in the student planner. No midriffs, Non-DBHS headgear, strapless tops and halter tops. First time violations will result in a SWAP 

Get involved on campus. Treat your teachers and other adults on campus with respect. Be kind. Help each other out. Most of all, have a wonderful sophomore year!
