Just a reminder that all students and staff should be masking properly, with your mask covering your mouth and nose. It is important that you are masking properly and trying to maintain distance from others when possible. Please do your part in protecting both yourself and others. We need everyone to demonstrate mutual respect so we can all stay healthy.

There will be no school on Monday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on November 2, 1983, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal holiday that occurs around the time of King’s birthday each year on the third Monday of January. Here’s a snippet from President Reagan’s speech in the Rose Garden as he proclaimed MLK Day a national holiday:

“In his own life’s example, he symbolized what was right about America, what was noblest and best, what human beings have pursued since the beginning of history,” Reagan said. “He loved unconditionally. He was in constant pursuit of truth, and when he discovered it, he embraced it. His nonviolent campaigns brought about redemption, reconciliation, and justice. He taught us that only peaceful means can bring about peaceful ends, that our goal was to create a loving community.”

Have a wonderful Friday, Dakers. Be sure to choose kindness, support our community, and do your best. Thank you.

Students will need to show their planner to the teacher/staff member to get it signed before using the bathroom. This structure will be used in ALL classes, study halls, and lunch study halls. You do not need to bring the planner with you to the bathroom but you still need to have a pass. Please make sure you get one from your teacher before exiting the classroom.

For students that arrive tardy to class on a consistent basis, we will continue to follow up with you through phone calls home, conferences, and consequences. Please make sure that you are arriving to classes on time.

Masks need to be worn correctly throughout the day, which means that the mask needs to full cover your mouth and nose. You will be offered mask breaks during classes and you can also advocate for a mask break from your teachers as well. For students that continue to receive chronic reminders, you will receive communication home, a conference with administration and other consequences such as time away during lunch or the successful completion of a mini-course in Schoology around masking and safety.

This is just a reminder that students are not permitted to eat or drink in the hallways. You may only eat or drink during your lunch or with permission from your teacher.

Again, thank you to all students that continue to follow our expectations to provide a positive and productive learning environment for others.

Masks need to be worn correctly throughout the day, which means that the mask needs to full cover your mouth and nose. You will be offered mask breaks during classes and you can also advocate for a mask break from your teachers as well. For students that continue to receive chronic reminders, you will receive communication home, a conference with administration and other consequences such as time away during lunch or the successful completion of a mini-course in Schoology around masking and safety.

Again, thank you to all students that continue to follow our expectations and provide a positive and productive learning environment for others.

November 29, 2021: B Day

Welcome back, everyone. We hope you had a nice couple of days with family and friends. We wanted to take this opportunity to review some of our Dake expectations as we return together today. Thank you to the students that are continuing to demonstrate school expectations and our community values. We appreciate the shared pride and mutual support.

If you are arrival late to school, you need to come around to the main office. If you see another student at the side door, please do not let them in. This will help ensure that our doors are secure throughout the day.

Starting today, students will need to show their planner to the teacher/staff member to get it signed before using the bathroom. Teachers and staff will note the date, period, and class. This structure will be used in ALL classes, study halls, and lunch study halls. You do not need to bring the planner with you to the bathroom but you still need to have a pass. Please make sure you get one from your teacher before exiting the classroom.

For students that arrive tardy to class on a consistent basis, we will continue to follow up with you through phone calls home, conferences, and consequences. Please make sure that you are arriving to classes on time and moving with a sense of purpose to get to your classes.

Masks need to be worn correctly throughout the day, which means that the mask needs to full cover your mouth and nose. You will be offered mask breaks during classes and you can also advocate for a mask break from your teachers as well. For students that continue to receive chronic reminders, you will receive communication home, a conference with administration and other consequences such as time away during lunch or the successful completion of a mini-course in Schoology around masking and safety.
