Update from Principal Goss
Dear Denver South Students and Families,
Thank you for attending our back to school night! It was wonderful seeing so many families and students in the building. If you were unable to attend the event, you can access our back to school website here.
We are noticing students coming back very late to class after lunch. We are asking families to encourage students to get to class on time.
Please remind your student(s) to bring their own water bottles to school. We are still experiencing warm temperatures inside and outside of the building.
Have a great weekend.
We are Denver South
