Dear Teller Families,
We wanted to provide an update about the class schedule for Friday, April 27th. Due to significant anticipated teacher absences across the district, DPS’ Superintendent, Tom Boasberg has announced that DPS is cancelling all classes for Friday, April 27th.
As we have been communicating with you, DPS has been working in partnership to press our state government to restore education funding to our schools. The Colorado Education Association (CEA) is planning a statewide rally of educators on Friday, April 27th, to advocate for greater state funding and expects that many of our teachers will participate.
The decision to cancel classes is not one made lightly, but given the current situation, DPS feels it will not be able to provide a productive learning day and fulfill their promise of a safe school environment for students.
Here is some additional information about the day to support you in planning:
To reiterate, this is a district-wide decision, and all DPS schools will be closed on Friday, April 27th.
We apologize that this change may cause an inconvenience and burden to families. If you have additional questions and/or concerns, please contact the Family and Community Engagement hotline at 720-423-3054 or FACE@dpsk12.org.
Sabrina Bates, Principal
