Log-ins are the first four letters of the child's first name and the first two of his/her last name. Passwords are the birth month and birthday (i.e., June 8 = 0608). If this does not work, check with your child's teacher. There are a few log-ins/passwords that are slightly different due to duplications.

Parents who would like to receive emails showing their student's quiz or test results may click the Email Setup link in Renaissance Home Connect and follow the directions.

 Every class makes a weekly visit to the library. Students hear a story and then are given an opportunity to choose and checkout books. Kindergarten and first graders checkout one book and all other students are allowed two books. Proper care of the books is taught and students will be charged for any books that are damaged or lost. We have a wonderful collection of books in our Dunlap Library. The support of the PTA and Dunlap families has allowed us to purchase many new titles each year.

Diane Christenson Bio * Our librarian

I graduated from Chico State University in 1976 with a BA in Childhood Development and an elementary teaching credential. I have lived in the Dunlap School neighborhood for over 25 years. All three of my children attended Dunlap and I often volunteered in the classrooms and the library. I began working for OUSD as a Title I teacher at Nightingale School and later became the librarian at Dunlap.

 Obviously one of my favorite pastimes is reading!! I make almost weekly visits to the public library and am excited when I find students and their families there also. I spend a lot of time outdoors walking and enjoying the beautiful central coast.
