DCSD Healthy Schools Survey - Month of November

posted Nov 10, 2017, 5:45 AM by Kathy Sheehan

Please take a few moments to complete our Healthy Schools Survey. We need parent input for future planning.

Dear Parents,

We need your input on the Health and Wellness of our students!

Last year, DCSD received a large Planning Grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School Whole Community, Whole Child model  WSCC. The mission of this grant is to review the current state of the district’s student health and wellness program, and then to formulate a 3-5 year plan, based on stakeholders’ needs, latest research and best practices. To meet a requirement of this grant we would like you to complete this survey

DCSD Creating Healthy Schools Planning Grant - Parent Survey.

Our goal is to enhance the amazing health initiatives currently in our schools, and develop more opportunities to improve students’ overall well-being. Districts throughout Colorado are also doing this work, as the link between student health and success in academics and in life is well studied.

What: Parent Survey

When: November 1st-30th

How: Online, anonymous, no individual student or parent data will be collected

Why: Your input will  shape the strategic plan for a comprehensive student health and wellness program

If you want to know more, please contact Laurie LaComb, DCSD Healthy Schools Coordinator at: lllacomb@dcsdk12.org or Lisa Kantor, Director, Health, Wellness, and Prevention at lekantor@dcsdk12.org

With Gratitude,

Lisa Kantor, Health, Wellness & Prevention Director

Student leaving early?

posted Sep 12, 2017, 11:17 AM by Kathy Sheehan

When students need to leave early from school, we ask them to present a note from their parent/guardian to a staff member in the main office, at the beginning of the day, to swap for a dismissal pass. We prefer not calling into classrooms as it disrupts the learning process for those in the room.  We do however, understand that there are unplanned times when a parent needs to pick up their child, when that happens we will either call into the classroom to dismiss the student or send a student aide to do so.

When your student needs to leave school early please:
  •  Provide your student a note with student's name, time to be picked up and the reason
    • Have your student present the note to our main office staff at the beginning of the day
      • staff will provide a pass for him/her and explain their reponsibility
    • Student will present the pass to the teacher in the class they will be leaving from
      • It is the student's responsibility to watch the clock and be in the main office at the time noted on the pass 
        • This is a 'responsibility' opportunity  (Of course we will call the student down if the student missed this opportunity after 5 minutes)
  • Parents will need to come into the school to sign their student out. (Student cannot sign themselves out, only in)
  • Students will need to sign back in if returning on same day .. parents do not need to come inside
  • We will call students down when necessary after the parent arrives to sign them out
    • Please keep in mind our traffic issues when planning how long it will take to get to our school, especially after 2pm.
