A reminder that there are no ECAs running on Tuesday or Friday of this week. 

I hope that you have a great week and a very enjoyable half term holiday. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Monday, February 19th.

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.
