DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS & FAMILIES

COVID-19 has closed down K-12 schools in Denver, Colorado, and across the nation. For many students, school is not only a place of learning, but a safe space with two meals a day and more consistent access to the internet. Thankfully, DPS has worked hard to continue providing breakfast and lunch, as well as dinner to those who need it.
Remote Learning

​DPS has decided to continue remote learning through the remainder of the school year and will be canceling all athletic events, extracurricular activities and proms. If you need a computer, click here.

Meal Distribution
  • ​DPS students and family can receive free breakfast, lunch, and dinner at sites throughout  the city. Breakfast and lunch are available from 11 AM - 12:30 PM, Monday - Friday, and dinner is available from 3:30 - 5:30 PM. For a list of distribution sites, click here.

  • In addition, Food for Thought Denver will be providing Powersacks at all distribution sites, every Friday. Each Powersack contains enough food for a family of four for two days. They are available for anyone in need, not just DPS students.​​​​

  • On Tuesday, April 7th, DPS is also launching a new weekday meal delivery program. School buses will deliver meals to schools and community locations throughout the city for the remainder of the school year. They will stop at each site for 20 - 30 minutes to hand out breakfast and lunch. On Fridays, weekend breakfast and lunch are also available for pickup. For delivery sites, click here.

Technology
