Early Release Heat Day

Posted September 6, 2022

Dear Ellis Elementary School Families,

This week Denver is experiencing extreme heat, and Ellis is one of 55 schools within DPS that is without air conditioning and as a result reporting increased temperatures throughout the school building. 

As we make every effort to ensure that our school stays open and that our students and educators feel comfortable, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of everyone. Since the temperature within our facility is rising dramatically in the afternoons, we will have an early-release Heat Day on Thursday, September 8 with a release time of 12:00 Noon. All students will be provided lunch prior to dismissal.  Please make plans to pick up your child at 12:00 on Thursday at the appropriate grade level entrance/exit.  Discovery Link programming will not be available on Thursday due to the heat.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our school, and I very much appreciate your patience as we successfully navigate through the extreme heat issues Denver is experiencing. 


Jamie Roybal, Principal
