ALL new and returning students must register** either Online or at Walk-in Registration.

We are currently on a waiting list for all grades so it is MISSION CRITICAL to register your child to secure their seat and class schedule.

**If you already participated in the “early bird” online registration in May, no action is required from you.  However you are more than welcome to come to walk-in registration if you have questions or want paper copies of any of our documents outlined below.

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.

  • Wednesday 8/4 from 8am- 4pm
  • Thursday 8/5 from 10am – 6pm


Online registration re-opens on July 30th through Parent Portal. You do not need to come to Walk-In Registration if you complete the online registration (formally known as Annual Family Update).

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” to complete the process. Online registration can only be completed by the parent/guardian listed in the primary household of the student record. Check with your school for its registration deadline.




Registration Fees

Registration fees were waived for the 20-21 school year.  However this year a $40 per student fee to help cover the costs of technology, celebrations and disposal items for our Integrated Arts (Art, Woodshop, and Band).  Each student will also receive a free water bottle and t-shirt with each paid registration fee.

If you are an online registered family, please expect an email from MySchoolBucks to secure fee payment.

Nurse Rundle will have a table at both Walk-In Registration dates to answer any questions and/or provide any medical forms for your child. Please bring a copy of your most updated immunization record for her files! If you registered online, please email her those records to

Food Service

This year, Denver Public Schools will provide breakfast and lunch to all students at no charge, regardless of the student’s free or reduced-price meal benefit status; however, it is still very important that families continue to complete and submit a Meal Benefits Application.

The submission and approval of a Meal Benefits Application provides advantages beyond eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. Submitting an application also helps ensure students receive the maximum amount of benefits they are eligible for, including discounts on bus passes and some school fees, such as athletics, and reduced AP testing fees. It also ensures schools receive additional resources to support healthy meals for students and afterschool programs. In addition, based on your application, you could be eligible for the P-EBT (Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer) program through the Department of Human Services. Please visit their website for additional information Your assistance in completing and submitting the Meal Benefits Application is greatly appreciated and has the potential to help all DPS schools.
