Dear DCIS Parents and Families,

What an amazing week we had last week at DCIS. Our students were involved in so many exciting activities and  produced some really interesting and informative work for their class tents.

Lunch Service: Sodexo

As previously communicated the main cafeteria is not accepting cash payments, but the DCIS Café will continue to accept cash. Although, the cash facility in the DCIS Café is really designed to accommodate parents for occasional use, we recommend that all students are signed up for a Campus Online account. This limits cash on site and allows parents to track purchases that students make during the day through their Campus Online accounts. You can access the Campus Online page at this link.

For more information, please contact Sodexo at:
