Parent Teacher Home Visit Program

About the Program

Too often, a home visit from a teacher means one thing to a family: trouble. But with the Parent Teacher Home Visit (PTHV) Program, the goal is to start by building a strong and positive relationship between the family and the school. The visits begin with the teacher asking about the family’s hopes and dreams for their child. By involving the parents and families, we create a better chance of success for students. Visit the website here to learn more.

In case you missed the info session about the Parent Teacher Home Visit Program, check out the slide deck and interest form here.

Before and After School Activities/School Sports

Application for Student Meal Benefits

All Hamilton families should complete this application as it helps the school receive funds. The submission and approval of a Household Application for Student Meal Benefits provides advantages beyond eligibility for free or reduced priced meals.  It 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 ensures schools receive additional resources to support healthy meals for students and after school programs. Your assistance in completing and submitting the Household Application for Student Meal Benefits is greatly appreciated and has the potential to help all DPS schools.  Apply now at


Bus stop information is now available on the Parent Portal. Click on  this link to get instructions for finding bus stop locations and pick-up/drop-off times. If the Portal says “walker”,  that either means the student is not eligible for transportation or they attend a school that uses the Success Express shuttle. If they attend a shuttle school, then they are automatically eligible and may board the bus at whichever stop/time works best for them. Shuttle schedules are available here. If you have any questions, call 720-423-4600 or email

Bullying and Cyberbullying

If you are concerned about bullying at your school, we recommend contacting your school’s principal, social worker, school psychologist or teacher directly to address the issue. We encourage you to talk to your student about bullying and to teach your student to always tell a trusted adult if he or she, or another student, has been bullied or cyberbullied.

Learn more about bullying and cyberbullying at:

You can anonymously report any bullying behavior that threatens you, your family or your community through Safe2Tell by calling 877-542-7233, by visiting, or by using the Safe2Tell app on a mobile device.

COVID-19 Guidance for Parents & Caregivers

Staying Safe and Healthy

We have automatic no-touch drinking fountains for students to fill their water bottles. Students are not allowed to drink water directly from the water fountain. Please make sure students bring a water bottle to school every day. 

Students must bring a mask to school and wear it properly, covering their mouth and nose. If a student is not wearing their mask properly, we will call parents/guardians to support us and pick them up from school if the behavior continues. Please help us at home by talking to your student about proper mask usage and by providing them with a mask that fits comfortably.
