21-22 calendar updates + 22-23 start dates!

Posted May 12, 2022

Greetings Bear Valley Families~

As we approach our final weeks of the 21-22 school year we wanted to outline some important dates so that you can update your calendars.

If you are a rising 7th or 8th grade family we expect to publish our unique 22-23 school calendar in the upcoming week.  However we understand that families are creating summer plans and need to be informed sooner than later for our 1st days of school.   

Final important dates for the 21-22 school year

Friday May 27th, last day of school for 6th and 7th grade.  It will be a fun celebratory field day.  All scholars will be dismissed at 11:30am.  Scholars will be able to grab a sack lunch on their way out to start their summer break.

Looking ahead to the 22-23 school year

For our rising 7th and 8th graders we wanted you to be aware that Bear Valley will have a different calendar than the traditional DPS calendar. 

We will be greeting our scholars before the DPS starts on Monday the 22nd.  This will allow us to have our final day of school on Friday 5/26/2023 and not return after the Memorial day weekend.

  • 1st day of school for 6th* = Wednesday August 17th, 2022
  • 1st day of school for 7th* = Thursday August 18th, 2022
  • 1st day of school for 8th* = Friday August 19th, 2022

*Once the grade level starts they will continue that following day (i.e. 6th starts on Wed but will continue to come to school on Thursday and Friday). 

As always, please call the front office at 720-423-9600 or email bvoffice@dpsk1.org if you have any questions.
