Weekly Communication – May 17, 2020

Dear Denver South Community:

I hope that you were able to enjoy the sunshine with family this weekend.  Happy last week of school to our Class of 2020!   As we get closer to the end of the school year, other surrounding schools and districts have finished and provided valuable lessons on how we shouldn’t end the school year, and most importantly, how we need to communicate important end of the year information and celebrate our Senior class of 2020 in true South Fashion amazingly!  An additional Senior shirt was ordered to commemorate the special class of 2020. These shirts were to be delivered this week, but there was a delay with the manufacturer and therefore they will be handed out at Senior checkout.  I apologize for the delay and not being able to deliver them personally.  

Senior Class Families, Thank you so much for all your feedback about virtual graduation and additional ways to celebrate our seniors.  We are excited to announce that, with approval from Denver Public Schools and public health officials, we will be hosting an in-person, drive-up diploma celebration on Tuesday, May 26, at 7:15pm directly following the car parade.  South staff will be there to cheer on our graduates as they receive their diplomas.  We encourage graduates to wear their caps and gowns and decorate their cars.   While many of the details are still being organized, here is what you should plan for so far:

  • One vehicle will be allowed per graduate.
  • The vehicle may contain no more than 8 people including the graduate (up to 7 guests + graduate) or as many seat belts that are available in the vehicle.
  • Graduates whose families without vehicle access on this day will be permitted to participate in the graduation celebration on foot by reservation and group may not exceed 8 people including the graduate (up to 7 guests + graduate).
  • All attendees are required wear a mask or face covering at all times.
  • All attendees in vehicles must stay in their vehicle at all times and those who are attending without a vehicle must observe distancing guidelines at the event.
  • Please complete this survey Diploma Pickup Ceremony Signup  to let us know that you plan to participate and if you will be participating by vehicle or by foot.

As all of our students start to close out their school year, we are so proud of your continued engagement, making this a school year for the memory books.  It was great to hear from so many of you during our livestream Town Halls, and we can’t wait until we can see you in-person.  Please see below for important updates from the district, information about our last live Town Halls, upcoming dates, and other end of year specifics.  As always, We Are Denver South!

  • Grade Notification – May 19th for Seniors & May 26th for Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors.  Starting Monday, students will not receive new assignments from teachers, unless they are in Concurrent Enrollment (CE) or Advance Placement (AP).  They will use this time to improve grades and make up or turn in any missing assignments from this semester.  If a student or family would prefer to take a class for credit, then the following Google Form will have to be completed in order to notify us of your desire.  If the form is not filled out, all grades will stay as letter grades with the exception of the letter grade “F” in which will default to No Credit (NC) and the class will have to be repeated either through summer school or next fall semester. 
  • Student Check-out Google Form – May 20th.  All families need to complete the Google Form and notify us if any items are needed for you to pick up before the school year ends on May 27th.  This is mandatory that ALL Seniors and any other students that will not be returning to South next school year complete.  For all other students, grades 9-11, you also need to complete the Google Form indicating what school issued property you will keep in your possession.  All locker assignments will stay the same.  Items will be kept safe in lockers until you return to campus next school year.  
  • Senior Check-out & Pick-up – May 22nd.  Designated time will be determined by last names 9:30am -3:30pm.  The checkout is designed to PREVENT CROWDS maintain SOCIAL DISTANCE, and keep staff and students SAFE. This will be a “curbside event” located at our west main parking lot in the front of the school.  Students and families will be lined up and asked to stay in cars or designated lines if a car is not available.  Only students will be allowed to drop-off school issued property at the designated tables one at a time while families will have to stay in the car or designated areas.  We ask that all items be placed in a plastic or paper bag to help with organization and physical contact.  If you have a fever or symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT COME TO SCHOOL and communicate with your counselor before the 22nd.  Masks must be worn at all times by students and the limited staff members that will be present.
