On-Site COVID-19 Community Testing: 
We are excited to continue our partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado to provide free, fast, and convenient COVID-19 community sample testing to all in-person staff and students this school year. We encourage all families to enroll your student in the sample testing program. DSST MTV will test students every Thursday.

If you consent to your child being tested it does not mean they will be tested each week, but that they are part of the group eligible for testing and will be tested at least monthly. You will be notified of their results via text and email within 24-48 hours of their test. 

School Accountability Meeting Updates
Our first School Accountability Committee meeting was held on Tuesday, September 21. There were some technical issues in making the recording available, so we apologize for the delay. 

School Accountability Committee Meeting

If you are interested in attending a School Accountability Committee meeting, please contact: leonardo.ruiz@scienceandtech.org  

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 14: 4:00p-5:00p (virtual)

School Culture
Student Dress Code

As the weather is beginning to shift, students should continue to be in dress code when at school. Montview Knight hoodies can be purchased HERE or students have the option to wear a red, gray, or black long sleeve shirt under the Montview Knight approved dress code t-shirt/collared shirt.  

Dismissal Expectations

Students really love hanging out after school. However, supervision in the middle school ends at 3:15 and 1:15 on Wednesday’s. At that point, we are asking middle school students to wait for their high school siblings on the high school soccer field and/or move to the sidewalk to wait for their rides. Thank you for your support in ensuring that students are safe after school. 

If you have any questions, please contact our Deans: lauren.snider@scienceandtech.org and renettal.haynes@scienceandtech.org
