Good morning Parents, Guardians and Students of DYHCS,

I hope this note finds you well in the midst of this pandemic. Please continue to stay safe by
washing your hands, cleaning things down and most importantly staying home.

We were excited to start a new school year 2022-2023.  We need 
to receive your child’s/ enrollment packet if you have not turned them in.

Keep in mind a complete enrollment packet is:
1. The enrollment packet filled out and signed
2. Updated Immunization record
3. CIB- if a new student
4. Birth Certificate – if new
5. Power of attorney or a legal document that you have guardianship if your name is not on
birth certificate

Keep in mind, school will begin August 03, 2022 (Wednesday).

Please don’t hesitate to call me at the school or email me if you have any questions at all,
need ideas to stay busy, or for feedback, I’m here for you and our students of DYHCS.
Please let our students know we miss them very much as well, we can’t wait to see them
and have everything back to normal.


Purpose of the Power of Attorney Form: 

You agree to act as the responsible party for the child in school. You will be taking over the duties and obligations the student's parent would normally have for school purposes only. The form gives the school a responsible party (you) to contact with any questions about the child, or to send information home about the child. The school will have the right to ask you questions to make sure you meet the conditions set out in the form.

Parent Letter-types of Absences

The Navajo Tribal Attendance law states that Navajo children between the ages of five (5) and nineteen (19) that are not graduated from high school must be attending school. Students who are dropped because of excessive absences will be referred to Family Court of the Navajo Nation. (Tribal Code Title 10, Chapter. Section 118, Paragraph A.)

Arizona Revised Statutes 15-184 states, “…school may refuse to admit any pupil who has been expelled from another educational institution or who is in the process of being expelled from another educational institution.”
