Montview Middle School News
Slowly, but surely, the DSST: Montview Middle School staff is returning to prepare for another amazing school year. The 1st day of school is Thursday, August 15th. As we update the site and begin communicating more regularly with our families, here are a few helpful tips:
Annual Family Update (formerly Registration): Annual Family Update is required for all families to complete in Denver Public Schools. DSST: Montview MS families must complete the application by Thursday, August 15th. To save time and travel, the entire application is available online and can be found on our website here.
School Supply Lists: Each grade level has a list of supplies that we expect all students to bring for the first day of school, Thursday, August 15th.
Our Montview Knights have prepared themselves all semester for their Trimester 3 Interim Assessments. To let them relax and celebrate their learning, we are dismissing 6th, 7th and 8th graders at 12:15pm on Friday, May 24, Tuesday, May 28 and Wednesday, May 29.
After a two year long, school-driven effort, our Stapleton Campus has now been renamed DSST: Montview. A name much more representative of our mission and school community, "Montview" means "Mountain View" and is also a historic street that spans the neighborhoods where our students are from.
We are proud of our students for having the courage to speak out for what they felt was right, working collaboratively to make a change, and showing deep respect for their community throughout the entire process.#MontviewKnights
Let your voices be heard! The Family Satisfaction Survey (formerly known as the Parent Satisfaction Survey) is an opportunity for families in Denver Public Schools to reflect on their experience with their students' school, share feedback and help our schools improve.
DSST: Montview Knights received their surveys from their advisors on May 9th. You have until Friday, June 7th to submit your responses.
Each packet included a survey and a prepaid return envelope. Completed and sealed surveys can be returned to our Knight's Chest in school or to a mailbox or local Post Office. Families with more than one student in the same school should only fill out only ONE survey.
Completing the survey is optional and results from the survey are anonymous and confidential. We encourage your honest feedback so that our school and district can provide the best education for you child.
You may have seen some conflicting reports today, April 16, about threats to the Denver Metro Area that are currently being investigated. We received an alert from Denver Public Schools approximately five minutes before our middle school dismissal that prompted us to briefly enter into a lockout until we were sure that we were cleared and could dismiss as normal. We still added extra staff presence outside and adjusted after-school activities in order to err on the side of caution. We will be following vigilant procedures today to ensure that all students get home safely. Staff will remain present on all campuses until
all students have safely left the building.
Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of your children, and will keep you updated if anything changes.
Es posible que haya visto algunos informes contradictorios hoy, 16 de abril, sobre amenazas al área metropolitana de Denver que se están investigando actualmente. Recibimos una alerta de las Escuelas Públicas de Denver aproximadamente cinco minutos antes de nuestra salida de la escuela intermedia, lo que nos llevó a entrar brevemente en un cierre patronal hasta que estuviéramos seguros de que estuviéramos autorizados y pudiéramos despedirnos como de costumbre. Seguimos agregando la presencia de personal adicional en el exterior y ajustamos las actividades extraescolares para errar por el lado de la precaución. Estaremos siguiendo procedimientos vigilantes hoy para garantizar que todos los estudiantes lleguen a casa de manera segura. El personal permanecerá presente en todos los campus hasta que todos los estudiantes hayan abandonado el edificio de manera segura.
Tenga la seguridad de que estamos haciendo todo lo posible para garantizar la seguridad de sus hijos, y lo mantendremos informado si algo cambia.
