School Year 2020-2021 Registration Information

Update 7/31/2020 by Heather Intres, Executive Director of Extended Learning and Community Schools (ELCS)

As health conditions have frequently changed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adjusted to address the needs and safety of our students, families, and staff. The district announced on July 17th plans to delay returning to school in person, and start the 2020-21 school year with remote learning on Aug. 24 for all students. The soonest we would consider a gradual return to in-person learning would be Sept. 8, just after Labor Day.

Discovery Link before and after-school programs will not be in session until in-person learning resumes. We will email our registered families and provide updates on our website regarding registration and calendar selection dates.

Discovery Link will be offering child care to include remote learning support for school-based DPS staff August 17 – October 16, 8:00 a.m.-noon. If spots at our sites remain after school-based staff register, DPS families may begin registering on 8/10 at 6:00 a.m. Please note there will be a second registration window opening on 8/24 at 6:00 a.m. for care 9/8-10/16. This will allow more staff and families an opportunity for access. 

We acknowledge that this is a trying time for all of our families. We want nothing more than to be back with your kids. We promise to keep you updated in this ever-changing environment.

In accordance with health guidelines and aligning with District practices around groupings of children and social distancing, enrichment programs will not occur in DPS buildings for the start of the school year, and we will re-evaluate as the year progresses.

For new families who have yet to enroll, please email discovery_link@dpsk12.org to understand the next steps.

Know that as the district adjusts school planning for the 2020-21 school year, we may have to adapt our programming model and flex between remote and in-person service. Things may look different for Discovery Link  given that we are adhering to state guidelines for licensed child care programs.
