Infinite Campus - Meet your new Apps

Subject: Delay...Campus Student and Campus Parent Apps

Thank you for your interest in the new Campus Student and Campus Parent apps for iOS and Android. The new apps will not be available today (Monday, September 17) as planned. We regret this delay and apologize if you are fielding inquiries from parents and students who desire the apps.

Two issues were identified this weekend that would have caused your parents and students to have a poor experience if they came across them. Both issues have been addressed and new versions of the apps are in the release process..

When will the new apps be available?

We expect the new apps to be available in the app stores later this week. Both the Apple App Store and Google Play have release processes outside our control. As soon as the stores complete their release processes, the new apps will appear for download by your students and parents. At that time, we will email you and make an announcement on Campus Community.

Dear parents and students,

Our approved 2018-2019 Student Handbook is posted on our Dayton High School website under “Students” or you can click this link. Please note that our student handbook includes revised expectations regarding cell phones and I have summarized changes here...

Student MacBook, pickup dates

All 2018/2019 Dayton High School students can receive a new MacBook laptop to use at school and at home!  Follow these two steps to receive your MacBook...

1. Register for one of the training sessions at this Signupgenius link.  Students MUST attend with a parent/guardian.  Sign up today.  Some sessions have limited seating so sign up today. 

2. Sign the responsible use agreement and pay the technology fee during your training session when you pick up your MacBook. The technology fee will be set during the July 25th board of education meeting and is not expected to exceed $25 per student.

Available Sessions:

     July 31st… 6:00pm (special session – receive $5 toward your technology fee!)

Student Issued Laptops, Grades 9 thru 12

Parents and Guardians,

Our district will be starting a Digital Conversion initiative, in the 2018-2019 school year, by issuing each student in grades 9 through 12 an Apple MacBook Air computer that they will be able to take home each night.  We see the need to better prepare our students for the 21st century and provide them the necessary tools to be successful. Students may have far less to carry back and forth to and from school each day. Perhaps more importantly, having technology available to each student in each classroom where learning is taking place will enable us to more effectively utilize it as a real-time instructional tool, providing students with the most up-to-date information and learning opportunities that would not be available otherwise.

Teachers Holding Walk-In before School, Friday March 30th

Show your love for your public school! This Friday, March 30th, Dayton Independent Schools teachers will be holding a walk-in before school to rally support for public education in Kentucky.

What is a walk-in? A walk-in is a peaceful gathering where people can express their ideas and concerns to their community. A walk-in allows teachers and staff to show support for public education without interrupting your students’ instruction.

Current budget proposals in the Kentucky legislature could have serious negative effects on YOUR school and YOUR students. Programs and staff will likely be cut if these proposals go through.

We are asking parents, students, and community members to join us if they would like to express their support for public education. We will meet outside both Lincoln Elementary and Dayton High School this Friday morning at 7:20am. We hope to line Greendevil Lane all the way from Lincoln to Dayton High School. Please wear RED to show support for public education, and you are welcome to bring a simple poster or sign (I love my public school, Honk if you support public ed, etc.). Please consider joining us and standing in solidarity as we fight for our schools and our students!

You can also voice your concerns to your legislators by calling the legislative message line at 800-372-7181.

Important Notice Regarding Solar Eclipse and Extended School Day...Dismissal at 3:50 PM on Monday, August 21

As many of you know, next Monday, August 21, we will experience a near total solar eclipse from approximately 1:00-4:00 pm. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon completely covers the sun. While we are not located in the area for a total eclipse, we will still be able to view 93% of totality.
This will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students as the last solar eclipse occurred in the USA in 1918. I know many of our schools have already planned special activities or lessons for this day to accompany the event. While the event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety. Our district has purchased NASA-approved, ISO-certified viewing glasses for all students and staff members to help us navigate this day safely. Like any other day, looking directly into the sun without proper protection can damage eye tissue; this becomes much more of a risk when looking at the sky to see an eclipse. Normally, our bodies instinctively protect us from harm via reflexive squinting/blinking and constriction of our pupils in response to the brightness of the sun. During an eclipse, however, the shadow created makes it dark enough to fool our body's natural defense mechanisms, and partial but permanent eye damage may occur without proper eyewear for viewing the eclipse. The risk of eye damage is present for the entire eclipse....


The Dayton Family Resource Center and Youth Services Center are hosting a district wide Readifest at Lincoln on August 9th from 1-3 p.m. Community agencies will be in attendance providing information on their resources. Students will receive school supplies, clothing, haircut coupons, and schedules (grades 8-12).

ACT on March 21st! ACT
On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, your junior son or daughter will be taking the ACT (American College Test) at Dayton High School. The Kentucky Department of Education is providing this opportunity free of cost for all 11th grade students throughout the Commonwealth. The scores on the ACT exam will count as the official and required pre-admission testing for most colleges and universities.
This testing day is very important and below are a few tips that will help your student perform to his/her fullest potential:
• Make sure they get plenty of sleep (think 8-9 hours) the night before the ACT, as well as the week leading up to the test
• Eat a good breakfast the morning of the test. Avoid sugar, which can cause a brief energy rush but then send you crashing. Make sure to hydrate with a few glasses of water.
• Make sure they get an early start to the day to get their blood flowing and their brain functioning.
Testing will begin at approximately 8:15 a.m. Your student should arrive early if they would like to have breakfast at school before the test begins and any student arriving after the test begins, will not be allowed to participate.
**All JV Baseball games are cancelled.

Washington DC Trip - Cancelled

It saddens me to announce that with the first payment deadline just a few short days away, the 8th/9th grade Washington DC trip does not look  like its going to happen.  As of today I only have five people who have made any payment and the travel company is in dire need of payments in order to reserve accommodations.  So unfortunately, I am making the difficult decision to cancel the Washington DC trip for the 2016-2017 school year.  Any person who has made payments towards the trip will be receiving a refund check within the next week.

Thank You for Your Understanding,

Mrs. Beth Fields-Hunt

Student/Athlete of the Month!

DHS/DMS project update!

We wanted to provide everyone with an update on the Dayton High School Construction Project that is getting ready to start a 1.6 million dollar building project. There have been several questions asked about the status of the project and when it will be completed. The Board of Education accepted the bid for the project from Leo Brielmaier Co. on October 13th. We met with their company and several of their sub-contractors last Thursday to discuss timelines and other details of the project. We are excited to say that they will start construction around Nov. 14th and are expected to complete the project by July 1st , 2017.

We want to remind everyone that funding for this project comes from state building funds that can only be used for building improvements. In 2013 we used this same pool of money to make 1.3 million to Lincoln Elementary School where we added a secure entrance, new floors, new restrooms, new Smartboard technology, new gym floor, and much more....

Lifelines Suicide Prevention Program

The adolescent years are marked by a roller-coaster ride of emotions – difficult for youths, their parents, and educators.  It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however, depression (among the most common of mental illnesses) appears to be occurring at a much earlier age.  Depression – which is treatable – is a leading risk factor for suicide.  In addition, self-injury has become a growing problem among youth.

Campus Portals - Back Online

Access to the Parent/Student and Teacher Portals from home had to be turned off to protect the Infinite Campus Student Information System. No student data was compromised during the weeklong cyber attacks the KETS Network and the Campus Portals endured.

Staff from the Commonwealth Office of Technology, KDE Technology Team, AT&T, and Infinite Campus, Inc. worked tirelessly to keep the networks secured.  Keeping the portals offline until security measures were put into place had to be made.

As of this evening, security measures have been put in place to protect these networks from these types of attacks. The Teacher and Parent/Student Portals are now available from home.

Holocaust Survivor spoke to 8th grade group

On April 18th Holocaust survivor, Werner Coppel, spoke to a small group of 8th grade students in the DHS library.  These students had just finished a unit studying the history of the Holocaust, along with a book study of Elie Wiesel’s Night.  As a culmination of this unit Mr. Coppel talked to the students about his experiences as a young teenager in the infamous death camp, Auschwitz.  Through hearing him speak many of the students were able to make a more personal connection with the horrible events that occurred, as well as make connections to their own life.  Priscilla Michaels wrote in her impact statement, “no matter how hard life gets or may seem, it gets better.  As long as you try your hardest you truly can succeed!”   Many students also took away lessons regarding prejudice and the impact their words can have on others.  Jyllian Stitzel wrote, “I learned that even the smallest thing you say can be filled with hate.  He made me want to be a better person.”  This is an amazing life-lesson and experience that will stay with this group of students throughout high school and into adulthood.

The Dayton Independent School District implements new school safety procedures


The Dayton Independent School District in partnership with the Dayton Police Department has implemented a new school safety procedure.  The Dayton Police Department provided the Dayton Independent School District with staff, visitor, and substitute teacher passes at no cost to the school district. The Dayton Police Department photographed and printed the ID badges for every faculty member, staff member, custodian, and administrator.  These ID’s distinguish between district employees, substitute teachers, and visitors.  The new badges are providing an increased secure building for the students and staff in the Dayton Independent School District which aligning with the new safe school procedures.

Any visitor coming into the buildings will be required to check in at the front office and provide a photo ID or driver’s license in order to be provided with a visitors pass.  This ID will be kept in a secure location in the front office which will clearly identify any visitor in the building. Once the visitor returns to the front office and returns the visitors pass, their ID is returned.

The Dayton Independent School District knows this may be an inconvenience, however, the safety of our students and staff is our main priority.

Special Thank You from Superintendent Brewer
 It is amazing what can be accomplished when a group of people come together to move a project forward.   A perfect example of this is what occurred on Friday, July 27 and Saturday, July 28.  During these two days over 90 students, parents, teachers, administrators, alumni, and community members came together to prep and paint Davis Stadium.  We want to spotlight the efforts of Mr. Tim Chenot, Lincoln Elementary teacher and Youth Football League Director, and Mr. Ron Kinmon, Director of Pupil Personnel, for their efforts in organizing this event.  We also want to thank the students, including members of both the football and soccer teams, for their efforts to support this project.   This was truly a TEAM effort and we thank everyone for contributions, both large and small, of their time and talent.  A good deal of the funds for this project came from the late Mr. Russ Brewer who left a donation that was designated for stadium improvements at Davis Field.  We want to extend a special thanks to Mr. Russ Brewer and his family for their amazing contribution to this project.

Health Point School Based Health Center Sees First Patient!

Health Point opens school-based health center at Lincoln Elementary.

                Health Point Family Care of Northern Kentucky opened a school-based health center April 10 at Lincoln Elementary School in the Dayton Independent Schools.  The health center also will be available to Dayton High School students.

                The Lincoln Health Center will be open on Thursdays, staffed by Health Point nurse practitioner Joanie Combs.  Services include physical exams, immunizations, and diagnosis and treatment of illness.  Parents must enroll their children in the school-based health center before services can be provided.

                School-based health centers provide many advantages for students and their parents, including:

  • The nurse practitioner has the training and authority to diagnose illness and prescribe medication.         
  • Provides convenient, inexpensive care where children already spend most of their day.
  • Overcomes problems of working parents, no transportation, and lack of health insurance.
  • Reduces absenteeism due to illness.

Health Point also operates school-based health centers in the Covington, Erlanger-Elsmere and Boone County school districts.        

Health Point is a non-profit primary care medical and dental practice, serving about 28,800 low-income and uninsured patients at health centers in Covington, Latonia, Bellevue, Florence and Nicholasville, Ky.

NKYFAN.COM...Skyline Spotlight: Dayton's Dylan Adams

Dylan Adams has had an unusual start to the 2013 football season. After starting at quarterback last year as a freshman on the varsity level, Adams came into this year expecting to pick up where he left off. A dislocated pinky and ring finger set him back in the preseason though, and he was moved to the slot receiver position. He was then moved back to quarterback this week when his replacement suffered a concussion.

Dayton HS



School was Dayton’s first high school, opening in the fall of 1888 and holding its first graduation in 1891. Lincoln School served as a high school until a new Dayton High School opened in 1904.  Lincoln then was used as an elementary school for another 48 years until a fire took that building, and a new building was built.  The first Dayton High School building served as the high school from 1904 – 1924 until it burned down.
