Mental Health Day Tomorrow, March 24:
Yesterday, the Denver Public Schools and East High School communities were again traumatized by an act of gun violence. Our hearts are with the two staff members injured, and we are wishing them a healthy and full recovery. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts. We understand that these events, especially in our schools, might cause increased anxiety. And, we know the importance of allowing all our students and faculty time and resources to cope with these difficult incidents.
To allow us all to take a moment to pause and process the challenging events this year, including the data breach, tomorrow, March 24, is a non-student contact mental health day for all DPS students and employees. To support families, we will have 14 Discovery Link extended care sites (https://bit.ly/3LLPoDr) available from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Additionally, the district will be providing food pick up locations (https://bit.ly/3nc4oQO).
Please know that we are offering a variety of resources throughout the district to ensure that all of DPS is supported. We want you to know that we are here for you and urge you to take care of yourself and prioritize your health and well-being.
Please do not hesitate to also reach out to our community providers dpsk12.org/mental-health-day-tomorrow-march-24/#en
