Based on the updated guidance from Governor Polis and CDPHE, DPS has made a decision to allow in-person, voluntary off-season athletics conditioning for high school students.  This is the third step in a multi-step process of returning to competitive play. During this third step, there will be no indoor access and very limited equipment use, as well as strict health checks and sanitation procedures for all participants.

We have made this decision with the continued goal of protecting the safety, health, and wellness of our students, staff and families. We recognize that the Denver community has been greatly impacted by the COVID pandemic, and believe that this is a positive first step in bringing our athletes back together. Session 3 will run August 3-August 21, 2020. DPS leaders will then determine how to best continue our athletics programming based on current health and safety guidelines and input from fellow school districts.

Please review the informational information through the following link: Session 3 informational sheet, outlining the details of participant engagement, health checks and sanitation procedures required during this time.  Should you choose to participate, your guardian will need to complete the required Student Registration for Step 3, which includes the district waiver by 12:00pm on Monday, August 3.

Additional information regarding student and coach waivers, daily documentation, conditioning schedules, and site drop-off procedures will follow prior to Step 3 Activities beginning on Wednesday August 5, 2020.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your specific Athletic Director or coach.
