Dear Parents/Guardians,                                        August 2017

 

The Administrative Team would like to welcome you back for a great year at Dundee-Crown High School.  We are working diligently to have the school ready for the arrival of our students on August 15, 2017.  We anticipate an exciting year ahead of us.  We would like to welcome Jake Stouffer, Associate Principal of Operations, to our administrative team.

 

As we prepare for the start of the 2017-2018 school year we would like to take this opportunity to share information, to clarify procedures, and to engage you as a partner in the academic success of your child.  In this communication we are asking for your help and support.  The school day begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 2:58 p.m.

 

Security check-in:

A security desk is located in the Attendance Office at the front entrance to the building.  Upon entering the school, you are required to check-in at the security desk.  Please have a photo I.D. ready.  Our staff will then direct you to the appropriate office or staff member who will be happy to assist you.

 

ID’s:

We would like every student to wear their ID cards while on school grounds.  Those who repeatedly do not have their ID will be required to purchase a new ID card for $5.00 in the Dean’s Office or an obligation will be added to the student’s account. All students should receive their ID cards on Material Pick-up Day, August 7th -9th, assuming you are in compliance with health, immunizations, records, and that you are fully registered.  

 

Tardy policy:

Being prompt and on time is a trait that we are trying to instill in our students which leads to academic success and prepares students for good work habits. Teachers are instructed to close their classroom doors when the bell rings.  Late students will go directly to class and will be marked tardy.  Infractions for tardies will be progressive in nature and each pass will specify the consequence.  The consequences will be as follows:

Tardy To School

  • Tardy 1,2,3,4     Warning pass issued/Parent-Guardian contact, office referral for tardy number 4

  • Tardy 5         1 Hour Detention/Parent-Guardian contact/restriction, office referral

  • Tardy 6         1 Day ISI/Parent-Guardian contact/loss of privileges, office referral

  • Tardy 7 +     1 Day ISI/Parent-Guardian conference/loss of privileges, office referral

No unexcused tardies for 10 days in a row will automatically reset tardy count.

Periods 2 – 9 (Cumulative, not per period)

  • Tardy 1,2,3 - Warning pass issued/Parent-Guardian contact

  • Tardy 4,5,6 - 1 Hour Detention/Parent-Guardian contact/restriction

  • Tardy 7,8,9 – 1 Day ISI/Parent-Guardian conference/loss of privilege

  • Tardy 10 or more – 2 Days ISI/Parent –Guardian conference/loss of privilege

 

Parking permits:

The Board of Education has established a $125.00 fee for the entire school year or a $70.00 fee per semester to purchase a student parking permit in District 300 for the 2017-2018 school year.  ALL FEES AND OBLIGATIONS MUST BE PAID IN FULL BEFORE PURCHASING A PARKING PERMIT OR TEMPORARY PARKING PERMIT. Temporary parking will be in the lower bowl parking lot. These fees are non-prorated and non-refundable.  There are a limited number of student parking spots on school property.  Student designated parking areas are the South and East parking lots. All students who purchase a permit will be assigned an individual parking space. Students are not permitted to park in the staff parking lot and doing so will result in disciplinary consequences and/or loss of parking permit including the vehicle being towed.  Students found using the wrong parking lot or parking space during the school day will incur the consequences of a parking violation which can include the vehicle being towed at the owner’s expense.

Bus drop-off/parent drop-off/student parking lot:

The buses will continue to drop off students at the Main Entrance on the West side of the building.  Buses start dropping off students between the hours of 6:50 a.m. and 7:20 a.m. and leave in the afternoon promptly at 3:05 p.m.  Please be aware of these times to avoid extra congestion of traffic.  If you are dropping off or picking up your student please use the Field House/Athletic Entrance circle drive or the Fine Arts Entrance located at the South end of the building by the student parking lot. The front drive at the Main Entrance is to be used for visitors and guests of the school.   

The district also has a new electronic app, Durham Bus Tracker, which will allow you to track your student’s bus.

 

Attendance:

If your student will be absent, please call (224) 484-5020 (English) or (224) 484-5080 (Spanish) before 9:00 a.m. on the day he/she will be absent.  If no call is received, it is noted as an unexcused absence.  

 

After school activities:

Unless a student is with an adult participating in an after school activity, they should not be in the building once the buses leave.  If you plan on picking up your student, please do not be late otherwise they will be asked to leave the building.  Please remember, you can pick up your student by the Field House/Athletic Entrance circle drive or the Fine Arts Entrance located at the South end of the building by the student parking lot.  We will have an activity bus (Monday – Thursday) for students participating in after school activities/tutoring that leaves at 4:15 p.m..

 

Electronic devices/cell phones:

Students are permitted to have electronic cellular devices in their possession.  When not in use, electronic devices must be kept out of sight and in an inconspicuous location, such as backpack, pocket, purse or locker.  Electronic devices may be used during passing periods, before or after school, in the Cafeteria during lunch periods, and with teacher approval during class time.  Electronic devices may not be used in instructional and assessment settings, PE class and locker rooms, library or media center, computer labs, assemblies and performances, or any area designated by administration or certified staff.  Please remember not to call or text message your child during the school day as you will put them at risk for disciplinary consequences.  If you need to contact your child in an emergency situation, please do so by calling the Attendance Office at (224)484-5020.

 

Valuables:

We do not encourage students to bring valuable items to school and the school is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Students need to monitor their belongings closely and not leave them unattended at anytime during or after the school day. Students should avoid bringing large sums of money to school. Any valuable items such as a purse, wallet, or electronic device should be locked securely in the hallway locker assigned to each student and not taken to the PE locker room.

 

Dress code:

Clothing worn to school should not create distraction or interfere with the academic environment.  Administration reserves the right at any time to determine whether or not clothing is appropriate for school and/or interferes with learning.  Refer to the Dundee-Crown Student Handbook for detailed information regarding dress code policy. Inappropriate dress for school may result in your student being asked to change and will be addressed by an administrator.

 

Lunch expectations:

Encourage your student to show their Charger Pride by arriving to the lunchroom on time, staying seated, and keeping their table area clear of waste/garbage.  We also ask that you refrain from bringing outside food to your student during the day.  They should come prepared with a lunch or buy from the cafeteria. Please discuss with your student that food orders and deliveries from local establishments are not permitted during the school day.

 

After school tutoring:

We have after school tutoring in our Media Center held Monday through Thursday from 3:15 to 4:15pm with transportation provided home.  Tutoring services are available in Math, English, Social Studies, and Science. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these tutoring opportunities.  

 

Booster Club:

D-CHS Booster Club is looking for new members to volunteer.  Booster Club is a PTO (parent/teacher organization) that helps fundraise for Dundee-Crown High School Athletic Programs.  If you are interested please contact dcboosterpresident@gmail.com
