Principally Speaking

Camp Diablo View

On August 5, 2021 we will be hosting our annual Camp Diablo View (AKA Walkthrough).


Please read this carefully as the schedule and events are specific to your teen's grade level.


Eighth Grade Students can come any time between 8:30 and 10. This is a modified Drive Through event. Please drop your child off at the front drive through and then proceed directly to the Marsh Creek Lot to pick them up. (Just like picture day last year.) When your child gets out of the car, he/she will walk up to the Multi Use Room to have their picture taken and then proceed directly to the 800 wing to pick up their books. They will come out of the back door of the 800 wing where you will pick them up. This appointment shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.


Sixth Grade Students should be dropped off at the front of school at 10:00 am and picked up promptly at 11:45 at the front of school. This event is for students only. At this event, your student will get a tour of their classes, learn a little bit about what it means to be a DVMS Bobcat, take their picture, receive their books and eat lunch and socialize with other 6th graders.


Seventh Grade Students should be dropped off at the front of school at 12:15 pm and picked up promptly at 2:00 pm at the Marsh Creek lot, at the back door of the 700 wing. This event is for students only. At this event, your student will get a tour of their classes, learn a little bit more about how to navigate campus, take their picture, receive their books and eat lunch and socialize with other 7th graders. Pick up is once again at the rear of school due to the fact that their final stop will be in the 700 wing to receive their books. Going out the back of the wing will make it so that they have only a short distance to walk while carrying their books.


We will have a make-up picture day during the first weeks of school and students who cannot make it will be able to get their books when they come to school. Schedules will be given to students at Camp Diablo View and will also be released via HomeLink (Aeries) prior to school starting. We will send a text reminder when the information is made available online.

IMPORTANT - Residency Verification for Incoming Students Only

As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year it is important that we have accurate records for enrollment.


We ask that you scan and send by email your documents for residency verification to Karen Rush, Office Manager at rushk@mdusd.org. Please include your students name and birthdate in the email and only send the documents that are in the categories below. In order for your student to receive their schedule for the 2021-2022 school year, address verification must be done before Monday, August 2, 2021.


Residency Verification


Residency Verification is required for all incoming 6th grade students and 7th and 8th grade students that are new to Diablo View Middle School.

Verification by items from both categories below are required:

  • Two of the following:
    • current valid vehicle registration
    • State or Federal tax return filed within the last 12 months with W-2 form(s) attached. Business returns DO NOT meet residency requirements
