Friday Message 10/22/2021

Posted October 22, 2021

Good Day, 

As both the fall and winter weather rushes in, it reminds us the school year is just about in full swing, funny to be saying that at the end of October. 

With the cooler temperatures approaching, we wanted to send a few reminders.  We will continue to eat lunch and have recess outside and many PE classes are scheduled outside.  It is imperative that children dress for the weather.  There is not a set temperature gage that automatically removes students from outside activities, but our guide will be that when the temperature/wind-chill is below 20 degrees we will move inside. 

Have a wonderful weekend, looking forward to seeing you all next week!. 

Thanks, 

Trich, Erik & Katheryn

Healthy Start Times Resolution Update

Last spring, the Board of Education passed a Healthy Start Times resolution to have all middle and high schools (district-managed and charters) start no earlier than 8:20 a.m. to support healthy sleep habits in adolescents. These new start times will begin in the school year 2023-24, not 2022-23 as originally planned. DPS is committed to working closely with our community to make this transition as safe and seamless as possible.

The Healthy Start Times webpage will house all relevant information including FAQs, community engagement events, and resources for families. The first community engagement event is planned for early November. If you have questions, please call our Family and Community Helpline at 720-423-3054 or email facehelpline@dpsk12.org.
