DESTINATION IMAGINATION - INFORMATION NIGHT 9/14
DI Information Night will be held Thursday, September 14th at 5:30pm at David Elementary. (Parents and Students are welcome)
Destination Imagination (DI) is an amazing and fun program that promotes creativity, problem-solving, team building, project planning, and much more!
DI at David Elementary is open to 2nd-4th graders. David Elementary and CISD cover all team membership and tournament registration fees. Additionally, David provides classroom space for a limited number of teams to meet on-campus on Thursday afternoons. DI requires a firm commitment and parent volunteer support.
To participate in DI, you commit to BLOCK the day of Saturday, February 24th, 2024, for the Regional DI Tournament (held at TWHS) and your child commits to attend and actively participate in weekly DI team meetings.
Also, DI at David can’t happen without parent volunteers! The number of teams is solely dependent upon the number of parents volunteering to be Team Managers.
If you are committed to participating in DI for the 2023-24 season, please join us for the information night on September 14th.
If you would like more information about the roles and opportunities to support DI at David or student involvement, please contact Kelley Loftis, David DI Parent, at email@example.com.

RAINY DAY DISMISSAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is rainy day dismissal?
Rainy day dismissal is called when we’ve determined the weather in the area is not safe to release bikers and walkers. This may include, but is not limited to, heavy rain, lightning, thunder, and/or heavy winds. A decision will be made by 3:05 pm and communicated to parents via text.
- Why do we wait so long to call rainy day dismissal?
Unfortunately, severe weather in our area changes extremely quickly. When a rainy day dismissal is called too early, the bad weather frequently moves out of the area by dismissal time.
- Should I call the school when there is a rainy day dismissal?
No. If you are unsure of your rainy day dismissal plan, please reach out to your teacher now to confirm. Your student’s transportation will automatically default to your prearranged “rainy day dismissal” choice. As long as your teacher knows your student’s rainy day dismissal plan, there is no need to contact the front office.
- If I’m a biker/walker parent, can I walk up to the school?
Please utilize the carline if possible. In the event that we call a rainy day dismissal after you have already walked to the school from a nearby neighborhood, you will be able to pick up your child at the side exits.
- Will I need my car rider sign for K-4?
Yes. ALL parents will need their car rider sign during rainy day dismissals, including 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade parents.
- If I’m a car rider parent, can I walk up to the school?
No. For everyone’s safety, car rider parents are asked to please stay in their vehicles.
- Should I go to the front office to get my child?
No. On rainy dismissal days, please only come to the front office in emergency situations.
- Will rainy day dismissal take longer than normal?
Yes. We ask for your patience as we safely dismiss all students.
