The DCMS Scoop:
If you are not familiar with Deer Creek Middle School or "The Scoop," this is an e-newsletter that provides information to parents about what is taking place at the Middle School each week.  It is a great communication tool for us and a great way for you to know how you can be involved in your child’s school.  This e-newsletter will be sent out every Friday afternoon describing events taking place at our school for the following week.  If you know of someone who is not receiving the newsletter, please have them contact the office to get signed up.

DCMS Shout-Outs:

~~Thank you to all of the volunteers and participants in the Breakfast with the Band event last Saturday!  It was a tremendous success!

~~Thank you to all of our testing monitors!  We truly appreciate your time and assistance last Wednesday!

~~Congratulations to our Antler All-Stars!

 

Attendance and Finals Exemption Reminders:

Oklahoma State Attendance Laws limit the number of absences per semester to 10 regardless of the reason for the absence (unless it is for a school activity).  If your child is absent and has seen a doctor, please provide doctor’s office verification slips to our DCMS office.  This allows us to code the absence as “Medical” for being under the care of a physician.  We do not have finals exemptions at DCMS; all students take their finals.  However, it is important to remember that your child must be in school 90% of the semester in order to receive credit (promotion to the next grade level).
