Angel Packs

East High School families receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, food stamps will see a significant decrease in monthly payments.  The federal government increased monthly SNAP payments to maximum allotments during the pandemic, but that extra assistance ended on February 28, 2023.  In order to help with the decrease in monthly food funds, the East High School Food Pantry partners with the Nursing Health Office to provide Angel Packs, Monthly Community Market, and snacks for students throughout the school day.  

We thank our generous partners at the Food Bank of the Rockies, We Don’t Waste, Lily’s Toaster Grills and funds from the East Angels Friends and Families.

We often get questions on the student attendance policy and want to provide the attendance policy of Colorado Department of Education (CDE), Denver Public Schools (DPS) and East High School (EHS).  All absences greater than 5 days WILL require medical documentation to support the absence.  This is critical to determine if any medical support is needed upon return to school.  Documentation can be emailed to:

DPS Attendance Policy considers a student Habitually Truant if a student incurs four unexcused absences in one month and/or 10 unexcused absences in a school year.   Reference to the DPS attendance policy can be found at:

The Colorado School Attendance Law C.R.S. 3.02 (2) (b) states: If authorized school officials determine that the parent’s excuse is not valid or verified, the absence shall be unexcused.’s%20compulsory%20school%20attendance%20law,C.R.S.

East High School Attendance Policy is consistent with both State and District policies and can also be found on the EHS website.
