Device usage is not permitted in the hallways and outdoor areas. Bring devices at your own risk; Darnell-Cookman is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Q: My child is going to be out today, do I need to do anything?
A: Make sure to bring a doctor’s note or excuse note to the front office the day they come back. It's a good idea to email teachers, gathering make-up work. Students are responsible for collecting their makeup work from each teacher. Students have one class period for every class period missed to make up work.

Q: How does my student get their Focus log-in?
A: Focus user names and passwords for students have changed. Students use their DCPS computer user name and password to access the grade portal. User name is the student's DCPS student ID number beginning with an "s". The password consists of: capital first initial, day of birth, lowercase last initial and the last four digits of the student's social security number or Florida ID number.
For example: Johnny Smith, student number 11223344, DOB 10/05/2000, social security number 555667777 would have a username of s11223344 and a password of J05s7777.
