Principal’s Message for July 2011

July 16, 2011 at 6:22 pm

Dear DPMHS Community,

A new school year is fast approaching! It’s hard to believe, but the first day of classes will be Monday, August 15 at 8:10 a.m., with school dismissal at 3:16 p.m. We will start the 2011-2012 school year with many new faces. Thanks to our new school site, we are able to accommodate more students and will be welcoming a large freshman class as well as new upper classmen.

New Student Orientation and Open Campus Day will take place on Monday, August 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Students and their parents will have an opportunity to meet some of our Daniel Pearl students and staff. Campus tours will be conducted and students will receive information regarding classes, high school requirements and school policies. School spirit wear and PE uniforms will be on sale. In addition, clubs and student organizations will be selling refreshments and providing information about student activities, sports teams and extracurricular activities.

An important reminder regarding Tdap Immunizations — ALL grade 7-12 students are required to have the whooping cough vaccination (Tdap) before starting the school year. If your child has not had this yet, please call your doctor or contact us for information about free immunization clinics.

We’re looking forward to an exciting new year at Daniel Pearl Magnet High School! 

As always, please feel free to email me at janet.kiddoo@lausd.net or call our main office at (818) 654-3775 if you have any questions about school events.

Janet Kiddoo
