Dear DCISM Families,

Friday, January 20 is Inauguration Day. This is a regular school day and we will have our focus on
instruction as always. At our school, we have been completing activities throughout the week to
recognize the inauguration as well as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day. Tomorrow, students and
teachers will have the opportunity to write their state representative to discuss our goals in education
over the next four years.

We understand that some students may wish to participate in activities related to the Inauguration
Day outside of school. If you choose to support this, please make sure that your student is excused
from class. Any student who is absent without an excuse will be considered unexcused. We believe
the best place for our students is in school, where they can maintain their focus on academic

Estimados Padres de Familia:

El viernes, el 20 de enero, es el Día de la Inauguración Presidencial. Este será un día normal de
clases y, como siempre, nos centraremos en la enseñanza. En nuestra escuela, hemos estado
participando en actividades durante la semana para reconocer la inauguración, como también
honrando al Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Mañana, alumnos/as y maestros/as tendrán la oportunidad
para escribir a su representante estatal para hablar acerca de nuestras metas educativas sobre los
próximos 4 años.

Entendemos que ciertos estudiantes deseen participar en actividades relacionadas con el Día de la
Inauguración fuera de la escuela. Si usted desea apoyarlos, asegúrense de avisarnos para que la
falta sea excusada. Los estudiantes ausenten de clases sin que lo padres lo comuniquen a la
escuela tendrán una ausencia injustificada. Creemos que lo mejor para los estudiantes es
permanecer en la escuela, donde pueden mantenerse centrados en el progreso académico.

Dear DCISM Families:

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Elysia Belser, one of our 12th grade students who was our student-body president and soon-to-be 2017 valedictorian. Elysia lost her valiant fight early Saturday morning from a medical condition. Elysia was extraordinarily brilliant and compassionate, and one of the most determined students. Her amazing heart and courage touched many of our students and staff throughout the six years she has been at DCISM.

We have met with our faculty and staff and students who were closest to Elysia and her family. We will have school supports for those who need it. Continued support will be available for students and staff.

Your student may have questions or be upset, and you may wish to discuss further with your son or daughter about death and grief. The following signs may indicate that your son or daughter is having difficulty, but with time they should decrease. Signs of stress:

Most importantly, marked changes in usual ways of behaving, including decline in school productivity or mood changes
Changes in sleeping or eating problems
Withdrawing behaviors
Easily distracted
Physical symptoms
Acting out behavior, including aggression
Passivity or listlessness

Our assistant principals, school social workers, school counselors, school psychologist, school deans, nurse and myself are all available for support and may be contacted at 720-423-5900. Please do not hesitate to contact us if needed.

Out of privacy and respect for the family, we will not be giving out personal information. For those community members who know the family, we suggest you watch for funeral arrangements and announcements in the newspaper.

Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
