2017-18 Student Verification and Back to School Night Information

Online Verification for the 2017-2018 school year will take place from July 20 until August 15 at 5:00.  You must have a Parent Portal account to register/verify online.  If you need to open a Parent Portal account so you can do online verification, as well as have access to other important information about your student, go to myportal.dpsk12.org and click on Getting Started.  You will need your student’s DPS ID# to start your account, so please call the office by June 2 if you don’t have this already.  If you forgot your password or you can’t log in (you must log in at least once every six months to keep your account active), you can ask for help by emailing portalteam@dpsk12.org or calling the portal hotline at 720.423.3163.

If you do not have computer access or your address has changed, you will need to come to Edison to complete your student’s registration/verification.  We’ll have registration at Edison on August 10 from 9:00-3:00. If your address has changed please bring a new proof of address (current Xcel or water bill or lease or mortgage statement), and if your child has had additional immunizations please bring an updated record.  Otherwise all you’ll need is names and phone numbers for anyone you want to be on your child’s emergency/pick up list.

There are a few things that are unable to be changed/updated through Parent Portal registration. For the following you will need to come to Edison’s registration (but you can still complete the actual verification online to save yourself time while you’re here):

  • If you need to change emergency contact information, you will need to complete a new emergency contact form in Edison’s office during registration.
  • If your student needs to keep medication at school you will need to pick up a new form to be filled out by a parent and physician.  These will be available at registration as well as in the office throughout the school year.
  • If you need a transportation exception form, you will need to complete this during registration at Edison.
  • If you need a Free/Reduced Lunch form, you will need to complete this during registration at Edison. This will be available throughout the school year as well.
  • School supply lists and DPS school calendars will go home with students this year and will also be available online.
  • All kindergarten students will need to sign up for an individual assessment on August 21.  Kinder families will get an email with information on how to sign up for an assessment online, and can do so after getting their student’s teacher’s name during online registration.

Back-to-school night will be Thursday, August 17 at 5:00 PM.  Please bring a picnic dinner for your family to eat on the field starting at 5:00 and visit with other Edison families.  Mrs. Whitelock will give a brief welcome to all families around 5:40 and then families can visit their student’s classroom from 6:00-6:30 and again from 6:30-7:00 if they have more than one child.

Please see the attached School Supply lists.

The first day of school for ECE and 1st-5th grade students will be Monday, August 21.

Due to assessments on August 21, kinder students will have their first day of class on August 22.
