Everything You Want to Know about CAASPP - the California Assessment of Student Performance & Progress

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017. DUSD Board Room, District Office (7471 Larkdale Avenue, Dublin) at 6.30-7.30pm.
Our resident assessment expert will help to demystify CAASPP, explaining not only how to read the scores but what skills are assessed in each subject area. Feel free to bring your individual student score report for assistance in understanding the information. Please join us for this very informative evening.

Halloween Costumes
Halloween is right around the corner and we want our families to know what is acceptable for costumes to make this a positive and fun environment for all. We ask for your support in helping students to comply with these district rules for middle school students:

·          Costumes must comply with the school dress code and be age-appropriate (no R-rated themes) and be respectful to others.
·          No full-face masks
·          Students' costumes may not include pretend weapons and/or explosives. Toy guns, swords, knives, or martial arts weapons, etc., are not allowed and will be confiscated if brought to school.
·          We are also asking for your cooperation in NOT allowing your children to dress up as clowns due to the possible disruption and fear it may cause. If anyone shows up with a clown related costume, they will be asked to change
Please help your student select costumes that support our efforts to provide a positive and fun environment.
