Principal’s RAMpage v3.6

Sep 13, 2022

Dear Dixon High School Families,
We are SO EXCITED to have “regular” weather?  And, with Homecoming just around the corner, we are looking forward to a wonderful fall!

Our grading period ends this Friday
Our 6 week progress report period ends this Friday.  It is important to remember that we are 1/3rd of the way through our fall semester.  Progress report cards will be mailed late next week.

2022 Homecoming
Please join us for our Homecoming Football Game and festivities next Friday, September 23,  in our stadium as our team brings home another win against Fairfield High School. 
We also have a Homecoming Dance on Saturday, September 24 for DHS students from 8:00-11:00.  I will be sending more information to students and families about the dance next week but don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.  

School Pictures
All students can order school pictures by contacting Lifetouch at  Images can be previewed there and you can order with your student ID#.

For senior portraits, students can go to and enter their appointment code (sent to homes on a postcard or via email from Prestige Portraits ).  If students don’t know their appointment code, they can search by school on the same site.

DHS PTO Update!
At the first PTO meeting they elected a PTO President (Lisa Altmiller) and Vice President (Heather Morales).  Also, Janae Chadwick will be our Treasurer.  This parent group will be working closely with student/staff activities, programs on campus and in the community so stay tuned.  Our first meeting is this evening, at 7:00pm, in the theater.

ELAC Meeting
Our first ELAC Meeting, for all parents of English Learner students is this evening at 6:00pm, in the counseling center.  Please join us!

We Have Answers
Do you have questions about school policies and procedures such as dress code, attendance, etc?  Please take time to read through the DHS Student & Parent Handbook!  Many answers can be found here

We Need Your Help!
As noted in the superintendent’s weekly update, DUSD is obligated to have all families complete the Income Verification Survey.  I think it is very important to remember that this is necessary to keep all of the programs and services we have built for your students.  If you’ve already done this…THANK YOU!  If you haven’t yet, please complete the survey at your earliest convenience.  Our Parent Liaison, Mrs. Gonzalez is also making phone calls and sending email reminders to families.
English Alternative Income Survey
Spanish Alternative Income Survey

Student Tardies
This is an issue that we ALL need to address.  As students get more comfortable with school, they are also starting to arrive late in the morning and during the school day.  Please make sure they understand the importance of being on time (which really means “kind of early”).
