Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

We hope that all our Hornets had an amazing summer break and we can't wait to see our students back in the building. As you enjoy the summer, please prepare for the upcoming school year by reading about our upcoming events and checking out the calendar tab. We have updated most events and will continue to do so until the first day of school. We are also launching our Flyer School App this Fall to make family communication easier. Additionally, we have set up a texting only school number for families to still be able to deliver a message during the busy morning and lunch hours. You can text our school at (970) 775-8472.

The window for online Annual Family Update is July 15th - August 30th at 4 pm. As you know, all the information for current students must be verified with DPS every year.

We are also happy to support via text. You must complete the update for every student enrolling in DPS. If your family is completing the online registration, you do not need to attend our registration dates at school. But you will need to download the following documents or finish the student fees from our website that will be available starting July 1st under the "Current Families" tab on our school website.

Families, we are so thankful for the amount of love and support our parents have shown all of our teachers this week. We wish you could've seen the honest surprise they felt when a teacher gave them a note or told them how they felt. Teachers expressed that sometimes they don't understand if they are connecting with a student, but this week made it clear that so many of them appreciated them and were grateful for the support and time they give to students.

As we close Teacher Appreciation Week we are doing a potluck for teachers. If you are able to bring it around noon it would be preferred. Though we understand parents are busy people.  You can sing up for the potluck in the link below. Thank you!

Hornet families,

As you have likely heard there is going to be some severe weather in the Denver area this evening and tomorrow morning. DSST adheres to DPS decisions regarding school closures, so please pay attention to your local news forecasts and the DPS website (https://www.dpsk12.org/) for updates on potential school closures. You will likely get messaging from DSST directly as well.

We have also made the decision to cancel CMAS testing for tomorrow April 11th due to the potential for difficult driving conditions should school not be canceled. We will be moving our final CMAS ELA and Math testing day to Tuesday, April 16th. Our 8th graders will complete their CMAS Science assessments on Wednesday, April 17th and Thursday, April 18th.  Thank you for your help ensuring student presence and timeliness during these important assessment days.

If there are other questions please feel free to call our school at 303-802-4120 or reach out to me directly through email with questions or concerns (john.clark@scienceandtech.org).

Thank you!
