Denver Public Schools provides free vision, hearing, and dental, screenings for all students in identified grades (Early Childhood Education, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th).
The screenings are NOT an assessment or an evaluation and do NOT replace professional exams. Mass screening is considered best practice to identify students who may be at risk for health concerns affecting the student’s ability to learn, and who may need extra supports to reach academic benchmarks.

Your student will receive screenings in the following areas:
Vision, Hearing, and Dental

YOU MUST NOTIFY YOUR SCHOOL NURSE DIRECTLY SHOULD YOU WISH TO REFUSE
ANY OF THE SCREENINGS FOR YOUR STUDENT.

The health screening components will be completed at your child’s school on:

Dates: February 27 – 28, and Recheck February 29

Please contact your school nurse for any questions or concerns about the health screenings.  Parents/guardians of students who were absent or who did not have optimal hearing, vision or dental screening will be notified in writing regarding the results.  

Thank you for your assistance as we work together to educate and support your student!

Sincerely,

School Nurse _Lilly Ng, RN, BSN

Reminders from the Front Office

**SNOW DELAY DAYS**
When the district calls for a two hour snow delay, the following happens:

  • Discovery Link will open at 8:30
  • The school office will open at 9:30
  • Students who are not in Discovery Link will be let into the building starting at 10:15am
  • School will start at 10:40
  • Tardy bell will ring at 10:45
  • Busses will run two hours later then usual (please keep in mind that if the roads are bad, the busses may be delayed even longer)

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the school office at 720-424-6070.

END OF DAY
If you plan to change how your child gets home on a daily basis, please notify the office prior to 3:30pm at 720-424-6070. Please keep in mind that we need to hear from you if there are any changes.

LOST AND FOUND
If your child is missing an item of clothing, please stop by the school to see if it is among the items we have collected. Not quite sure how it happens, but we seem to acquire quite a bit of clothing.  

ATTENDANCE
If your child is out sick from school, please contact the office so that we can excuse your child for the day. We do send out a daily robo-call when students have an unverified absence.

PHONE CALLS
Please keep in mind that the office staff cannot transfer calls up to the classroom as this will interrupt the classroom learning environment. If it is important that you talk to your child during learning time, the office staff will take a note up to the teacher and ask that the student return your call during their recess time.

AM DROP OFF
Please do not drop your child off at school prior to 8:15 a.m. There is NO supervision available.  The office will no longer open the doors until 8:15 a.m.  Students may have to stand outside in the cold until 8:15am. Staff will no longer allow them in the building.
