I Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this spring weather.  A reminder that CMAS testing begins next week for 3rd – 5th graders.  Monday will be the final day to notify us of any changes to your decision regarding testing.  As things begin to slowly open back up, please look for information regarding our spring fundraiser, field day and other outdoor events that will be open to parents.  Have a great weekend.

Dear PHE families:

We were deeply saddened to learn of the tragedy at the Table Mesa King Soopers in Boulder on Tuesday.   This, coupled with the tragedy in Atlanta, is a terrible event for our Colorado community and Nation; and we’ve already been through so much.  We hope you and your families are ok, and we acknowledge the loss and grief this brings.  Children need adults to reassure them when terrible things happen.  We wanted to share this resource from the National Association of School Psychologists for teachers and families about supporting and talking to students about violence.   Also, please review these Mental Health Resources.  – JULIA_WIGERT@dpsk12.org

I wish everyone a happy and safe Spring Break. This has been a surreal school year in many regards, and everyone deserves a little downtime if you can find it. I encourage you to spend time with family and close friends, reconnect with one another, and focus on the priorities that will make us better people and a better society.  Teach your kids kindness and how to get along with each other. And teach empathy.  I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, April 6. Take good care of yourselves and one another.

Park Hill Parents:
Beginning Monday, March 15th, students will no longer be
allowed to hang out after school on school grounds if not
supervised by an immediate adult. This is due to an
increase in after-school incidents over the past few days.
To be clear, we are a community school, and we love
having students, parents, and families using our
playgrounds and field after school and on the weekends.
You are welcome to continue doing so as long as your
child is supervised by a parent or a responsible adult.
However, please do not assume that your child will be
supervised unless you are personally there or have
arranged it with another adult ahead of time.

This policy will go into effect on Monday 3/15. Any students
left unsupervised will be sent home or asked to come to
the office to call a parent for a ride.

Thank you in advance,
Ken Burdette

Technology Inventory
If your student has returned to in-person learning and you still
have a device at home (Chromebook, iPad, chargers, etc.),
PLEASE return them ASAP, as we are working on inventory.
