Pathways for November25th ______________________________________________________________
We want your input on school safety, space and technology needs.
A District 196 task force has completed its initial review of facilities and equipment needs in our schools and will be sharing results with anyone interested in taking part in one of three focus groups. The things being considered by the task force in the areas of safety, space and technology would impact our school and our students. Please consider attending one of the focus group nights: Monday, December 1 at Rosemount Middle School; Tuesday, December 2 at Dakota Hills Middle School, and Thursday, December 4 at Valley Middle School, 6:30-8 PM each night. To participate, call the District Office at 651-423-7715 or email kathy.cason@District196.org and give your name and the meeting you plan to attend.
The link to the Internet Safety Night sign up in the DP Newsletter needs to be copied and pasted into your browser to work. Sorry for any inconvenience.
If there is any change to how your child will go home at the end of the day (or if you will be picking up your child early from school), you are to send a note to the office at DP that has:
- Child’s first and last name
- Child’s teacher
- Time you will be at DP (or the new arrangement for going home)
- Your signature
An email or phone call to the teacher may go unchecked, so the best way to communicate is by a note to the office. Thanks for helping us keep your child safe!
Elementary School Attendance Guidelines for Independent School District 196
We would like to encourage student attendance every day that is possible, as good attendance helps to ensure a child’s success in school. In the state of Minnesota it is the parents’/guardians’ legal responsibility that all elementary age children attend school. Elementary age students who miss 7 unexcused days of school or more, according to the Minnesota Statutes regarding education, are considered at risk for educational neglect and their parents/guardians are in violation of the state law on compulsory education (see MN Statutes 260C.007, Subd. 19.) When a child has 7 or more unexcused absences, state law requires that the school notify Dakota County.
Students are expected to be at Diamond Path in their classrooms when the bell rings at 9:25 a.m. If a student is not in their classroom by 9:25 a.m., it will be considered an unexcused tardy. Excessive absences and/or tardies will result in a letter of concern from the school. It should also be noted that 3 unexcused tardies may be considered as 1 unexcused absence.
In order to provide for the added safety of the children, parents/guardians are to call the school before 9:30 a.m. to inform us if your child is going to be absent. Call the school (before, during and after office hours) at 952-423-7695. Please leave your child’s name, grade level, teacher’s name, date of absence and reason for the absence. If you notify your child’s teacher of the absence, please also notify the office. If we have not received a phone call before 9:30 a.m., we will call you either at home or at work to ensure your child’s safety. If you don’t call in and we can’t reach you, your child’s absence will be marked as unexcused.
We want to support parents/guardians and children so that all of our students have the best attendance record possible. For more information on the connection between school attendance and school success, please visit: www.attendanceworks.org

Internet Safety Night (4th and 5th grade only)
What are children doing on the internet? And who are they talking with? These are just a couple of the many questions parents have regarding their children and the internet. Technology changes fast. Our children have never known life without the internet and, in many cases, know more about it than we do.
Come to this free PTO-sponsored event to learn about social networking, texting, and how to keep your child safe online. Linda Johnson, Diamond Path's Media Specialist, will present what she's teaching the students about digital citizenship. Also, a local Apple Valley police officer, Michael Thelen, will be presenting information and answering your questions.
When: December 2, 2014
Time: 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Where: Diamond Path library
Who can attend: Parents of 4th and 5th Graders
(4th and 5th graders are welcome too, but they will not stay with their parents; they'll get their own age-appropriate information session in the computer lab/multipurpose room at Diamond Path. )
Please note: We are not able to accommodate younger siblings.
This is a free presentation, but we ask that you register before the event.
To RSVP, please copy and past link into your browser:
