  • DPS Health Update: Now that at-home rapid COVID tests are more readily available, please note that if your child is having COVID symptoms and gets a negative from an at-home rapid test, you will still need to get a negative PCR test or rapid molecular negative test to  return to school. Please continue to let us know if you are getting you or your child tested so we are aware. You can get COVID PCR tests ordered through your pediatrician or you can sign up at COVIDCheckColorado. You can also find places to get a COVID vaccine if you are still needing one. To find out about symptoms and other FAQ’s, go to the DPS COVID-19 Guidance  page.

  • Menus: As you have probably heard on the news, DPS Food Service is being impacted by the supply and employment shortages in Colorado and around the country.
