Denver East Remote Learning System
Dear East Angels, Parents, and Community Members,
As you are aware, through the remainder of this school year, our students are participating in remote learning, as prepared by and facilitated by their teachers.
Our experience with remote learning has had a strong start largely due to the creativity, the patience, and the determination of our staff members and students. The dedicated effort that we are seeing from our entire community is impressive and appreciated. While we never would have anticipated the need to serve our students fully through the on-line context, the positive attitudes, positive assumptions, and thoughtful feedback coming from our community are helping to create successes through this collective effort.
We thank you for your ability to understand and support each other as we continue this effort together. Along with the information provided on this website, you will receive ongoing updates through our weekly “Friday News” distribution at the end of each week. We want to keep you informed.
As always, let us know of any questions, concerns, and ideas that you have to help us continue to learn through this experience together.
Take good care,

Message from Superintendent Cordova:
With the health and safety of our students and team members at the heart of this decision, DPS leadership has made the decision to continue remote learning for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. This means our schools will not reopen this school year for in-person classes.
Today’s decision means that we are canceling all athletic events, extracurricular activities, and proms. In addition, playgrounds and athletic fields are closed until further notice to reinforce social distancing and prevent further spread of the virus. Unfortunately, this decision includes the postponement of in-person graduation ceremonies as well. We will do everything we can to reschedule these celebrations when health officials allow gatherings again, and we will find ways to honor the wonderful Class of 2020.
As we look ahead, we will continue with our plans for remote learning through the end of the school year. Team members across roles and regions have been working hard to prepare for remote learning to best support our students at home – including creating learning options for teachers and providing technology and internet access to families who need it. Thank you to everyone for your commitment to helping our kids continue to learn and grow as we all navigate this new situation together.
