Students riding in cars

Arrival: Vehicles should arrive at the school by approaching from Ridgeglen Way turning north onto Southpark Road. SEE MAP HERE   Please remember that during drop off and pick up times, vehicles are restricted to RIGHT TURNS ONLY both in and out of the parking lot to ensure student safety and to maintain traffic flow. Once in the parking lot, students can be dropped off beginning at the curve where the sidewalk starts.  If your child needs assistance unloading, use a carseat, or if there are multiple children in a car, please pull forward to the yellow zone.

Pick up: Please place a yellow placard with the last name of your student(s) on the passenger side (visor or dashboard) of your vehicle to assist with loading students.  We will load students in the yellow zone after school.All students must enter and exit the vehicles on the sidewalk side of the car so that they do not step into oncoming traffic.  Vehicles may only turn right into and out of the parking lot, in order to avoid a gridlock situation.

District News

DCSD is requesting parent 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 DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
