Dear DSST High School Families, 

DSST has promised parents and guardians flexibility in making the decision to have your student attend in-person classes or keep them in a virtual learning environment.  As you heard earlier this week, DSST will return to campus for In-Person Hybrid instruction beginning February 1, 2021.  At most DSST schools, students who attend in-person hybrid will be in buildings 2 days a week- either on Monday & Tuesday OR Thursday & Friday each week, and will attend virtual classes on the other days. All students will learn virtually on Wednesdays. 

Families may select from two instructional models for the remainder of the year.
In mid-February, there will be an opportunity to update your choice again if your family circumstances change. 

  1. In-Person Hybrid: This model will allow students to attend in-person school on a modified schedule, as allowed by Health and Safety guidelines established by the District, County and State of Colorado. Students who select this model will be required to wear masks, complete a daily health screener, and adhere to the safety protocol for the campus.
  2. 100% Virtual: This model will have students continue instruction at home, on a computer using both synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Students will not come to the school building for any instructional contact.

You have not yet made an Instructional decision and it is now time to make a selection for each High School student for the remainder of the year.  

Please click here no later than 5pm on Tuesday, January 12.
If no selection is made, your student will be enrolled in the 100% Virtual option. 

  • You will need your student’s Student ID # to complete this form. 
  • Students selecting the “In-Person Hybrid” option will be required to wear masks and adhere to all required Health & Safety protocols for the campus.
  • Transportation to or from campus is not provided. 

If you also have a DSST Middle School student, expect a separate email to communicate similar information about the update process  If you have multiple High School students that have selected different instructional methods, please make sure you follow the process to update each individual student. You may contact your school to verify the selection for each student or refer to the DPS Parent Portal to review your previous selections for individual students.  

Again, your student(s) is now required to make a selection and you can do that anytime before 5pm on Tuesday, January 12 by clicking here. 

Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we navigate our return to school planning. 

Best,

DSST Public Schools


Estimadas familias de las Escuelas Preparatorias de DSST,

DSST ha prometido a los padres y tutores flexibilidad para tomar la decisión de que su hijo asista a clases en persona o mantenerlos en una ambiente de aprendizaje. Como escuchó a principios de esta semana, DSST regresará al campus para recibir instrucción híbrida en persona a partir del 1 de febrero de 2021.  En la mayoría de las escuelas DSST, los estudiantes que asisten al híbrido en persona estarán en los edificios 2 días a la semana, ya sea el lunes y martes O el jueves y viernes de cada semana, y asistirán a clases virtuales los otros días. Todos los estudiantes aprenderán virtualmente los miércoles.

Las familias pueden elegir entre dos modelos de instrucción para el resto del año.
A mediados de febrero, tendrá la oportunidad de actualizar su elección nuevamente si las circunstancias de su familia cambian. 

  1. Híbrido en persona: este modelo permitirá a los estudiantes asistir a la escuela en persona en un horario modificado, según lo permitan las pautas de Salud y Seguridad establecidas por el distrito, el condado y el estado de Colorado. Los estudiantes que seleccionen este modelo deberán usar máscaras, completar un examen de salud diario y adherirse al protocolo de seguridad del campus.
  2. 100% virtual: este modelo hará que los estudiantes continúen la instrucción en casa, en una computadora, usando instrucción sincrónica y asincrónica. Los estudiantes no vendrán al edificio de la escuela para ningún contacto educativo.

Aún no ha tomado una decisión sobre la instrucción y ahora es el momento de hacer una selección para cada estudiante de HS para el resto del año.

Haga clic aquí a más tardar a las 5 pm del martes 12 de enero.  Si no se hace ninguna selección, su estudiante será inscrito en la opción 100% Virtual.

  • Necesitará el número de identificación de estudiante de su estudiante para completar este formulario. 
  • Los estudiantes que seleccionen la opción "Híbrido en persona" deberán usar máscaras y cumplir con todos los protocolos de salud y seguridad requeridos para el campus.
  • No se proporciona transporte hacia o desde el campus.

Si también tiene un estudiante de secundaria DSST, esperar un correo electrónico separado para comunicar información similar sobre el proceso de actualización  Si tiene varios estudiantes de preparatoria que han seleccionado diferentes métodos de instrucción, asegúrese de seguir el proceso para actualizar a cada estudiante individual. Puede comunicarse con su escuela para verificar la selección de cada estudiante o consultar el Portal para padres de DPS para revisar sus selecciones anteriores para estudiantes individuales.  

Una vez más, ahora se requiere que su (s) estudiante (s) haga una selección y puede hacerlo en cualquier momento antes de las 5 pm del martes 12 de enero haciendo clic aquí. 

Gracias nuevamente por su paciencia y comprensión mientras navegamos en nuestra planificación de regreso a la escuela. 

Lo mejor para su familia,

Las Escuelas Públicas DSST

Hello Montview parents and guardians,

I hope you are doing well this holiday season.  We have received feedback from students, staff and families that a shift in the way we utilize school time during virtual learning would benefit all stakeholders.  In order to continue providing students with engaging, individualized support, the following shifts to our Wednesday schedule will take place:

Beginning Wednesday, January 6th, your student’s Wednesday schedule will look different and we will not be following an A/B week with students attending all of their classes.

Teachers will be offering a 50 minute block of time for Math (9-9:50), ELA (10-10:50), Science/Social studies (11-11:50) followed by Spanish and electives from 12-1 pm and make up work from 1-2 pm.  Teachers will select students to participate in individual tutorials/small group support for these courses. If you student is not requested to attend one of these blocks, then they will have independent work time to complete assignments on their own.

Students will receive their adjusted Wednesday schedules during advisory on Tuesday, January 5th and this schedule will remain in place for the foreseeable future.  

Please reach out to your student’s advisor or teacher with any questions that arise. 

Thanks,

Jaime Head, Associate School Director of Instruction
