Monthly Director's Note

June Director's Note

 

Dear Montview Families,

I hope you are having a wonderful summer! 

For those of you who don’t yet know me, my name is Becca Meyer, and I am the School Director at DSST Montview High School for the 2020-21 school year, which might be the most unique school year we ever encounter! I’m excited to dive into the challenge together.

Our priorities for the school year remain the same regardless of what school looks like: 1) ensuring that we provide excellent instruction for all students and 2) ensuring that our community is a safe and inclusive one, both physically and emotionally - this includes working towards being an anti-racist community, where all students are truly safe.

The year to come will present us with new challenges. However, I know that it will be an exciting one because our students grow and flourish inside the classroom and out.

While I know that many of us have so many questions about the upcoming school year, I don’t yet have all of the answers. We learned from Denver Public Schools last night that they are hopeful for a return to school in the Fall. Please be on the lookout for a message from our network team today to explain a little bit more about this recommendation. Rest assured that we are keeping the following in mind as we make decisions for next school year: well-being and safety for students and staff AND excellence in academics and instruction.

DSST Public Schools will be closed 6/29-7/17. We’ll be excited to work with you upon our return on Monday July 20.

Below is important information for you to ensure you are prepared for the 2020-21 school year:

  • Annual Family Update (Required for all students to complete no later than July 31st in order to receive a computer before the first day of school) Window will open July 20th. To complete update click here
  • School Website dsstpublicschool.org ( information regarding school supply list, fees, school updates)
  • New Student Academy (for new-to-DSST students only) August 17th and 18th 
  • First Day of School (All Students) August 19th 

 

Enjoy your summer. See you soon!

 

Ms. Becca Meyer
