Promote Bicycle Safety

We have noticed an increase in students riding bikes and ebikes in our community. While this choice can promote healthy habits, we must also ensure our students know how to safely ride a bicycle on our streets. We have provided a website and youtube video for parents to review with their children.

Parent Night Out Nov. 18th

Friends of Dana and Correia are organizing a parent night out in OB to raise funds for our parent association. Therapie Day Spa on Voltaire St. has offered to donate 25% of each service to FODAC when you book a service for use on the 18th. Not able to visit the spa on the 18th? If you purchase a gift certificate anytime before then they will donate 25% of the value to FODAC (Great Christmas gifts!). Just let them know you are a Dana or Correia parent when you call to book an appointment or purchase a gift card. They have blocked out times on the 18th for our group but won't last long so call soon!

 Not into the spa scene but still want to participate? We have you covered. Also this evening we are partnering with Voltaire Beach House for food and drink specials on their outside patio area. 15% of all sales to Dana and Correia parents this evening will go to FODAC!  They are extending their food happy hour specials from 5-8pm for us and drink happy hour specials until 6pm. We'll congregate outside with plenty of tables. 

Therapie Day Spa and Voltaire Beach House are on the same block on Voltaire so you can do both if you are so inclined. Questions about this evening? Email coryosth@gmail.com

Dana Tardy Policy

Tardiness to any period is very disruptive to your child’s routine and negatively impacts his/her school experience. Please assist us in meeting your child’s educational needs by making sure your child is in class before the bell rings. The school day begins promptly at 7:40 a.m. 


Students late to school three times in a semester are assigned an after school detention for each third tardy. Please see our school attendance policy for more information. Our policy can be found in the front of your child’s planner or by clicking this link.


Please visit our Attendance FAQ page for more information regarding our tardy policy and tips and tricks for parents experiencing difficulty with having their children arrive on time for school.


Yearbooks For Sale Online!

Dana Middle has implemented a new online program for purchasing school-related items such as yearbooks and lost textbooks. The system is called School Cash Online and is approved by the SDUSD Finances Department. Parents must register for a School Cash Online account. The account will follow the student as they matriculate to Correia and Point Loma High School.

Dana families can reserve their copy of our 2021-22 yearbook using this system. Yearbooks are on sale for $32.00. Click this link for more information!

Parents wishing to use a traditional method for ordering yearbooks can contact Finance Secretary Theresa Jordan at tjordan@sandi.net for information on paying with cash or a check. Checks should be made payable to Dana Middle School ASB.

Students can also use this system to pay for lost textbooks. Please contact Theresa Jordan (tjordan@sandi.net) or Marta Thiele (mthiele@sandi.net) with questions.
