DO NOT PARK IN THE BUS LANE DURING POSTED HOURS
There is a reason this sign is posted in front of the school. By parking in the bus lane, you are creating a PHYSICAL HAZARD for our students. PLEASE adhere to the LAW and find a different place to park while dropping off and picking up your children.
Thank you to everyone who donated to “Dolla’s for Koalas!!” We collected $1029 in bills and $443 in change, for a grand total of $1472 to be donated to help the koalas in Australia. WOW!! – Ms. Gates

WINTER / SPRING AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT
Park Hill Winter-Spring Enrichment Offerings 2020
*DPS SCHOOL CHOICE*
*Pre-Enrollment – You can still pre-enroll your student now that the SchoolChoice process has begun. It will make the choice process easier!!*
If you have a student that will be new to DPS next school year, in order to participate in Denver Public Schools Choice process, families may pre-enroll their student now! After you complete the pre-enrollment process we will send you a student ID number so that you can then create a Parent Portal account. Using Parent Portal is the best way to complete the Choice Process.
Go HERE to complete your Pre-Enrollment Paperwork. You will need to fill out the paperwork and return it to the school office with proof of birth and proof of address, such as a lease or a utility bill.
*Current Students DO NOT need to do this.
The SchoolChoice enrollment process for the 2020-2021 school year is open and will continue through Tuesday, February 18 until 4:00 pm.
If your student is going in to ECE, Kindergarten, or Sixth Grade, you will need to complete the choice process. In addition, any DPS student who is not currently enrolled at a Denver Public School, or wants to attend a school other than their automatically assigned neighborhood school must take part in SchoolChoice.
Please note, the entire SchoolChoice process will be 100% ONLINE (you may use your smartphone, iPad, laptop, PC, etc. to complete your SchoolChoice application(s). For those who do not have a way to complete the process at home, you may go to the public library or come to the Park Hill Main office during school hours if you need assistance.
The process will be easiest for families who already have an existing Parent Portal login because the new Choice system will auto-populate much of your information if you use your Parent Portal credentials to log in. Please note it is not necessary to access the new SchoolChoice application through Parent Portal, it is just as easy to access it through the main DPS website at schoolchoice.dpsk12.org (just use your Parent Portal Username and Password to log in to the new SchoolChoice system). If you do not have a Parent Portal login, do not fret. Go to schoolchoice.dpsk12.org when SchoolChoice opens starting February 1 and you will be directed to create a new account. If you are brand new to DPS, you will need your student’s proof of birth (birth certificate or passport), and proof of your address (Xcel bill, water bill, mortgage or lease).
PLEASE REFER TO THE COMMUNITY BOARD (ACROSS THE HALL FROM THE SCHOOL OFFICE), TO GET THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION REGARDING EVENTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, CAMPS / ENRICHMENTS FOR STUDENTS, COMMUNITY MEETINGS, FAMILY RESOURCES, ETC.
