Our goal is to make registration easy and as online as possible. Please begin to review and complete the information and links below:
20-21 First Day of School: Academy 360’s first day of school is Monday, August 24th.
Week of August 17th: This week will be utilized for K-5 to make individual family calls to outline what families can expect during the two weeks of virtual instruction, get them what they need (computer, schedule, tech sheet, books, etc.). ECE families will be invited to meet with their teachers, either by phone, video or socially distanced outside, to learn more about each preschooler before the school year starts.
STARTING JULY 27th! Parent Portal: IMPORTANT! Make sure ALL of your contact and household information is up to date here. You will also need to select your child’s form of learning this year (in-person/hybrid or 100% virtual/online), as well as your home language questionnaire, and more! https://myportal.dpsk12.org/
School Supply List: ECE, Kinder-1st Grades, 2nd-5th Grades; please note: K-5 students’ cubbies are now in the hallway. Please be sure school supplies and other school related items are the only things in backpacks. We recommend buying these items sooner than later as the materials will be needed for virtual/hybrid/fully in-person instruction models.
Apply for school lunch! You will need your student’s DPS ID number, which can be found in your Parent Portal account. Follow this link – https://www.myschoolapps.com/Application; please apply whether you think you might qualify or not.
20-21 COMING SOON! Lunch menu: https://www.schoolcafe.com/menus; check out the new menu interface each month! Students will eat in their classrooms this school year.
Become a Charter School Advocate! As an A360 family member, you are a vital member of the Colorado charter school community. Because of the great options they often represent, charter schools are now serving over 125,000 children across Colorado. As a member school of the Colorado League of Charter Schools, we would like to encourage you to sign up to receive messages from the League’s Colorado Charter Advocacy Network (COCAN) to stay informed about issues that affect our school and the charter community. You can also text “COCAN” to 52886.
COCAN was designed to keep charter school families and supporters informed about pressing issues impacting our school and to provide you with an opportunity to speak up and advocate for your student. The more charter families are ‘in the know’ about issues affecting charter schools, the more proactive we can be and the better it is for our school. SIGN UP FOR COCAN HERE
Uniforms: all students must purchase the school polo/sweatshirt from the front office. Sizes range from child size XS (4) through adult medium. Polos are $12.00 and sweatshirts are $15.00. Families are welcome to buy bottoms and sneakers (at least 60 minutes of movement every day!) from the store of their choosing.
20-21 COMING SOON! Bus Transportation: DPS is restructuring the Far Northeast and Near Northeast shuttles to point-to-point transportation instead of shuttle. This will be in effect until COVID-19 risk is minimized and health standards ease. This will allow DPS to lower the risk of virus transfer. Students who use the shuttles will be routed onto yellow school buses, with enrollment zone requirements. Elementary students who live within a mile of their school will not be eligible for transportation. Bus information will be available for parents as soon as possible in Infinite Campus and the Parent Portal.
DPS is also requiring a +Pass for all riders, this will help us perform contact tracing should a student or driver test positive for COVID-19. +Passes will be delivered to the school for distribution at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.
Aftercare: aftercare is available Monday through Friday and will be LIMITED TO 10 STUDENTS, FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. We will most likely prioritize our youngest learners. We will know more closer to Labor Day.
Boys & Girls Club: many A360 students ride the Success Express to the club (one stop away at McGlone). Membership is $2/year; the club is open 3-8pm all days DPS is open and serves dinner. Students must be 6 years old to attend. Check out the flyer or register here.
Homeschooling: a few families have thought about homeschooling, given the challenges presented by COVID-19. Here is a resource for requirements and other considerations: https://www.cde.state.co.us/choice/homeschool
