Hello DATA Families! 

Welcome to the start of the 23-24 school year!  It’s already time to prepare for another wonderful year at DATA.  We are honored you chose to be part of our community and look forward to learning and growing with you this year.   

We are committed to the success of each and every DATA student, but know we can’t do it alone.  We need the support and participation of our parents, families and students.  When we work together we create a comprehensive educational experience that enriches the academic and social-emotional growth of each student.  Here is some helpful information to help you prepare for the upcoming school year.  


A separate email with registration information will be sent out this week (new families will receive different information than those returning). Keep an eye out for this email.  

Jump Start Days 

Each class/ grade level has a designated morning as a day of orientation before the start of the first day of classes. Our aim is to help students familiarize themselves with each other, their teachers and the campus.  This day runs from 8 to 11 am. All students are required to attend Jump Start day. Parents are invited but not required to attend.  

Jump Start Schedule:

Drop off/Pick up Procedures 

Late Arrival/Early Dismissal 

Students arriving late need to sign in and obtain a tardy pass from the front desk. ALL students who need to leave early MUST have parent permission, regardless of age. Parents picking up their child early must come inside the building to sign out their child and present identification to the front staff. Students who drive themselves need to have parent permission to leave early, even if they are 18 years old. Parents of student drivers/18+ students, please email attendance@datacharter.org to give permission for your child to leave school early. More detailed information, including information on student parking passes, is in the student handbook on our website.  


Dress and Appearance 

Students at DATA are encouraged to express themselves through what they wear.  However, they are also expected to show respect for others in what they wear and avoid unreasonable distractions to others based on their clothing.  No clothing that is offensive or promotes sex, alcohol, violence, drugs, prejudice, hate speech or uses profane language will be allowed at school.  The school administration reserves the right to determine if a student’s clothing violates this policy.  Students whose appearance is determined to be in violation of this policy will be asked to change or, if available, given clothing to wear for the remainder of the day. Repeated offenses will result in a parent meeting with administration to determine consequences and future support.
