  • Mr. Rebello with students and staff

    Dear Diman Community,

    The COVID-era of education has disrupted our normal school processes, routines, and structure. The objective of our weekly preparation email is to empower students and families. With the appropriate preparation and understanding of school processes, students will be set up for a successful school year. 

    Contained within each email, you will find detailed information preparing our stakeholders each week, including information regarding student transportation, arrival/dismissal processes, class transition, and more. While the weekly preparation correspondence may not answer all questions you have regarding the new school year, contained below, you will find contact information for school personnel to answer any questions via email or phone.

    School procedures may be modified over the next year in response to the needs of our students, state mandates, and other factors that pivot the course of our educational landscape. While aspects of our processes and procedures may change, our focus on providing students with academic, vocational, and socio-emotional growth will not.

    Diman remains committed to being the school system our community, state, and nation need us to be - an institution that produces life-ready graduates ready to shape the future and the world positively.

    The weekly updates that follow will serve as a guide to help navigate the next several months together. We are committed to making sure that every child is fully supported, engaged, and safe as we embark on 2021-2022. I remain honored to serve as your Assistant Superintendent-Principal.

  • End of the school year

    Posted by Andrew Rebello on 6/23/2022

    Hello Diman Community,

    As this school year draws to a close, I want to take a moment and thank every individual in our school community, from the most dedicated team of educators, administrators, and support staff, to our amazing students – including the remarkable Class of 2022 – and their families, for continuing to partner with Diman through one of the most challenging years ever. 

    As a community, we have shown great character and perseverance. This school year, we have reached several milestones. There is still more work to be done, but I believe we have all the resources and skills to continue providing what this community has come to expect from Diman, a world-class education. 

    I am standing with you – shoulder to shoulder – to continue to move mountains for our students and prepare them to be life-ready. We wish you a safe and wonderful summer. Thank you again for your partnership. We look forward to seeing everyone on August 31 for the first day of school.

    Good afternoon Diman Community,

    Happy Memorial Day! We remember and thank the selfless heroes who courageously gave their lives to protect our freedom. Let us honor the bravery and service of the men and women who put nation above self.

    As mentioned on numerous occasions, we have the hardest working students and the best teachers in the business. This is reflected in the 18 GOLD MEDALS and 25 total medals earned at the SkillsUSA State Competition. Good luck to our students and teachers attending nationals!
