We would like to take a moment to introduce to you the 2017-2018 Denair High School Staff. These amazing educators will be spending countless hours with your children during the next school year. It takes a village to make every child’s high school experience successful. Let’s work together to make this one a success!

The first day of school is August 10, 2017!

Picture Make Up Day!!!

If your student missed Coyote Call, you must take a yearbook and ID card picture. These pictures will only be taken on the following days: 9th and 10th graders Tuesday August 15th and 11th and 12th graders Wednesday August 16th. Pictures will take place in the DHS Theater during lunch. Picture order forms can be picked up in the office.


Denair High School celebrated its 2016 football homecoming with a community parade on Friday afternoon. The procession started Down Coyote Way to Denair Elementary Charter Academy, turning down Fresno Street, before returning to the High School. The Denair High School Band led the parade followed by FFA, the team Moms, the homecoming court, class floats, and the football teams and cheerleaders. A photo gallery is available for your viewing pleasure.

Armas goes from upset in Denair to Disneyland in a matter of hours


Denair High School football coach Anthony Armas made a promise to himself before he took the job at his alma mater: Football wouldn’t consume his life.

He would always make time for family and their adventures, even when they coincide with the biggest win of his young career.

The Coyotes spoiled Delhi’s bid for a perfect season Friday evening, riding two Justin Steeley touchdown runs to a stunning 14-0 victory.

The win spices up the final few weeks in the Southern League, where front-running Orestimba (7-1, 5-0 WAC) suddenly has a clear path to second consecutive championship.

USA TODAY High School Sports recently brought you the story of Grant High in Van Nuys, which has scrapped its way to a 6-0 start to the season despite competing with just 20 players on its roster. As impressive as that Southern California feat is, it may be topped by another program farther up the state.
As reported by the Modesto Bee, Denair High has jumped out to a 4-2 record, racking up victories against both former Sac-Joaquin Section champion LeGrand by a score of 50-0 and 2015 Division VI semifinalists Ripon Christian 32-0. Both of those results would be surprising for a program that has just two winning seasons in 12 years, but they’re stunning when you consider another factor: Denair is competing with just 14 players.
That’s right. Forget a 20-man roster, Denair lists just 16 players in total and has had only 14 active in recent weeks. Nonetheless, the Coyotes’ “Mighty 14” are on track to capture, potentially, both a Southern League crown and Sac-Joaquin Section playoff spot. Consider the fact that Blair High in Pasadena recently canceled the remainder of its season because it’s roster shrunk to 20 players, and the Mighty 14 can seem almost like superheroes.

Meet the Principal

It is with great pleasure to introduce myself as your new Director of Secondary Education. My name is Kara Backman and this will be my 17th year in the education field, working as a teacher, administrator and education consultant. My husband, James and I have three amazing children, Kade, Kash and Jacee. Kade will be attending DECA in August as a Kindergartener in the bilingual program. My family is deeply rooted in the Denair community where both my husband and sister in-law graduated. The land where our family owned pig farm resides is the property in which my husband’s grandfather homesteaded. I am firmly passionate about youth first, giving back to your community and purposefully growing your mindset through life-altering relationships.
We are going to have an amazing year as we focus on Building a Strong Culture and Climate for our high school community and fostering Academic Success through support and accountability. My work at Denair High School has already begun and is deeply entrenched in this transformation. I have been relentless about hiring the right “fits” for our student, staff and family community. My goal is to be fully hired by Coyote Call and we are well on our way!

New Cell Phone Policy

Per student and family request, we have adjusted the cell phone policy. I hope that this appeals to 100% of our student body. Please take a few moments to read the enclosed policy and partner with us to reinforce this new policy with your child.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity of partnership. I am excited about the year ahead of us.

“Student Password Changes

All returning students’ passwords have been updated from seven characters to eight characters, by placing the number “9” in front of your existing password. For example, a student who previously had a password of 1234567, would now have a password of 91234567. Students new to the District for the 2016-17 school year, already have eight character passwords.”

School Site Council

We are in need of members and parent participants to assist in the oversight of the Single Plan for Student Achievement are needed. Please email Mr. Dale Lovelace at if you are interested.
