What's New This Week?


Denver Public Schools 

Preparing for the New School Year

Remember, school will begin on August 24th.  We will begin the year in full “E-School” mode through at least October 16th.  We are working on a number of resources to help you understand and prepare for this school year, including schedules, safety guidelines, and where to access help. We are also working on ways to bring students together beyond our daily online curriculum, and will be elaborating on both of these topics in a forthcoming email.

Laptop Checkout

Student Laptop Checkout will begin the week of August 10th and closes August 14. Families will receive more details about checkout dates and times specific to their school this week. IMPORTANT: Families must complete the DPS Annual Family Update in order to checkout a laptop. If you have any questions about Annual Family Update or need support, please contact your school’s Front Office

DPS Annual Family Update 

If you haven’t already, please complete the DPS Annual Family update as soon as you can. This is a mandatory update that DPS requires each year, and will be necessary for all families to complete prior to picking up student laptops. If you completed the form during the “Early Bird” window in May, you will still receive an updated link directly from DPS this week.  This will include an Addendum about instruction selection, internet and computer needs- please complete this as soon as possible.  Click here for more information and guidance around completing the Annual Family Update.
