School fee money is extremely important.
This pays for all consumable workbooks to be
replenished for your child each year.

  • You can pay your $35.00 school fee on Wednesday during Open House to your homeroom teacher.
  • All parents are expected to make a payment towards your school fee by the end of September. Speak with the main office regarding payment plan options.
  • Families with more than two children are only required to pay $70.00 total - regardless of the number of children attending Diego.

Jose De Diego is still in the midst of the interior renovation project that began immediately following the close of school for the summer, 2017. In the previous summer the building was closed for exterior brick work, new roofing, and renovation of the skylights in the small gymnasium and lunch rooms.

Currently, the crew inside Diego is remodeling classrooms by removing walls, reconfiguring spaces, restoring plaster and paint, replacing the ceilings, and new windows will be installed. Rooms with aging air conditioning units will have new units installed.

During this renovation, however, the building will remain closed; not only to visitors, but staff as well. We will announce when the offices will be reopen.
