The purpose of this post is to make sure all Bear Valley families and students are prepared to start the 23-24 school year and know the action steps required to finalize registration! We know this is a lot of information to absorb but we appreciate your time reading through each and every section!
If you still have additional questions don’t hesitate to call 720-423-9600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our YETITASTIC front office ladies will be happy to assist.
If you are reviewing this communication but your CHILD WILL NOT BE ATTENDING BVIS please call or email us with name and location of the forwarding school so that we can provide transcripts and confirm enrollment. We cannot remove you from our rosters (or auto dialers) until we have confirmed enrollment with this new school. The sooner we hear from you the sooner we can pull one of our wait listed students over!
Online registration re-opened on July 30th through Parent Portal and is the preferred method to complete your child’s registration. If you complete the registration online you would only need to come to the school to purchase Spirit Swag t-shirts and/or pick up paper copies of all the documents provided in this website post.
Online registration is completed by signing into Parent Portal. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, you can create one here. After you sign in to Parent Portal, click on “See All Apps,” then click on “Online Registration” (towards the bottom of the list of apps) to complete the process. Online registration can only be completed by the parent/guardian listed in the primary household of the student record.
Click below for step-by-step directions to support completing this online registration:
If you are unable to complete the online registration please choose the day and time that works best for your family. Students are welcome to join but it isn’t required. The entire process should take less than 30 minutes. Please park on the surrounding streets and enter through our main entrance along South Golden Way. If there are spots available free free to park in either of our lots!
If you are new to DPS or you had a recent address change please be sure to bring in a copy of your current lease or any utility bill.
Registration fees will be again waived for the 23-24 school year to allow families to support Spirit Swag purchases and purchase our full school supply list!
All students in DPS will have access to FREE healthy, nutritious school meals beginning in the 2023-2024 school year thanks to the Healthy School Meals for All program approved by Colorado voters! While meals will be provided for free to all DPS students through Healthy School Meals for All, families will still need to complete a form to ensure DPS gets full access to available federal funding.
What this means for families:
Uniform shirts and any outwear with a BV logo will be required for all students. Please click HERE to access the full dress code policy. We are excited to offer a FREE dress day throughout the year to reward scholars for meeting our ROAR expectations. We also host several Spirit Weeks throughout the year.
BVIS has a unique school calendar that is slightly different from the DPS Calendar. Please click HERE to view our calendar. We start a bit earlier than other DPS schools, however our last day of school is 5/31/2024!
Each grades 1st day of school will be a FULL day and will be focused on building culture and ensuring all staff and students have time to ease into this new school year. This includes building tours, locker practice, and taking purposeful time to start building relationships.
In May 2021, the DPS Board of Education passed a resolution to have all middle schools and high schools (district-managed and charters) start no earlier than 8:20 a.m. each school day to support healthy sleep habits in adolescents.

This map will guide you on where to drop-off your child based on their grade as well as which doors they will enter.
**Families will be contacted by our DPS Safety & Security Officer if their child(ren) have been found to be on campus after 4:00pm so that we can brainstorm supports to ensure their after-school safety.
Please click HERE to view our supply list. If your family is in a position to help donate any supplies, please call our front office to arrange a drop-off. If your family is facing financial hardships please email Mama Yeti so that we can provide your child a backpack full of these supplies.
All yellow bus requests or questions must go through DPS Transportation. Please click below for their website link or call 720-423-4600 for assistance.
