Denver Public Schools (DPS) offers parents the Parent Portal, a program that allows you to access accurate, current, and confidential information about your child’s school attendance, grades, class assignments, and more. Please see the attachments below for the Parent Portal Agreement, which must be signed in front of a school staff member to be valid, and a quick reference guide from DPS. Please contact the Parent Portal Hotline with questions: 720-423-3163.
Note that the Parent Portal is separate from the Student Portal, which allows students to access their own information. Students may contact their Deans with questions or if in need of assistance. Learn more about the Parent/Student Portal by downloading the Parent Toolkit: English, Español. The Portal Team has also coordinated a variety of training resources for parents/guardians. Please visit their website for additional resources.

DSST: Stapleton High School has partnered with Way to Go to assist families who may not live close to the school (or Success Express locations) and need to carpool with other families. Families should receive information from Way to Go at the beginning of the school year.
Hello DSST families! Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! My name is Mandy Lindsay and I will be serving as chair of the campus parent group for the coming year. Our long-standing parent organization has been known as the STP, but over the summer, and on the heels of the school’s name change, we have decided on a new name that will move us forward.
So let me introduce the Family Association of Montview, or FAM for short. The premise is this – if you have a student here on campus, you are part of the FAM! Our goal is to help create a schoolwide community of students, staff, and families – with our focus being you, the families!
FAM is rolling out some new programs this fall and we need your help to make them a success.
First up – we have identified areas for parent involvement and ask that you plug in to the committees that work with your interests and talents. They are as follows: activities, advisory parents, communication, community service, enrichment, events, fundraising, inclusion/diversity, DSST network/charter advocacy, recruitment, special projects – school grounds/landscaping, spirit wear, teacher/staff appreciation, and think tank/community issues.
Get more details about each committee and sign up here:
And please come to our ad hoc FAM meeting where will be filling all positions for the year!
Monday, August 19th @ 6:30pm in the high school cafeteria
Second, and this piggy backs off the committee discussion, we are launching a brand new Advisory Parents program. Think back to elementary school where there was a room parent who helped the teacher and planned events, and then scale that up to meet the needs of middle and high school classrooms. We are looking for at least two parents or family members from every advisory to help the advisor in any way that may be needed (or organize volunteers to do so), plan events for the students and families, and help keep the advisory families up to date on school events and communications.
Get answers to any questions and sign up here:
Third, we are hosting our first-ever Classroom Setup event right before school starts, on August 13th and 14th. Teachers take a lot of pride and spend a lot of time setting up their classrooms and this is an opportunity to help out, get to know teachers, and meet other parents and students.
See times available and sign up here:
And finally, to get the school year started smoothly, we are looking for parent volunteers to help reduce traffic flow into the parking lot before and after school. Students are not allowed to be dropped off/picked up in the parking lot, and this task would entail standing at the entrance of the parking lot while wearing an orange vest with a sign explaining the dropoff guidelines to our community.

Throughout our network we have had a number of questions posed by families in regards to immigration policy changes at the federal level and how that impacts individuals in the community. We have created this guide as a response to these inquiries.
If you have specific questions please feel free to reach out to DSST’s Manager of Advocacy, Hillary Hoffman at email@example.com or call our main line at 303-802-4140 to get transferred to Hillary.
As always, we are committed to the emotional safety of our students.
Purposes of this guide:
- Provide information about who families can reach out to for help within the community.
- Provide general guidance on your legal rights in event of an immigration visit or raid.
- Always seek the advice of an immigration lawyer on all legal issues. This guide is not meant to provide formal legal counsel.
- Make sure that the sources you are using for updates and news are trusted and reliable sources.
In addition, DSST stands by our Gender Identity Policy and Guidelines and will continue to stand in support of our gender diverse staff, students and families.
