Update Your Information in the Parent Portal
DCSD Express Check-In
  • GVA-DC parents DO NOT need to complete express check-in with DCSD. However, parents DO need to update emergency contacts, email addresses and phone numbers in their parent portal. See below for information about creating parent portal accounts and resetting passwords.
Creating a Parent Portal Account:
  • If you have not yet created a DCSD parent portal account, please contact the DCSD IT Support Center via email or phone at 303-387-0001.
Resetting your Password
  • If you need help with a password reset go to this site: Pin Password Reset (you will need your username, and guardian ID number to do a reset) If you do not have those credentials, please call the DCSD IT Support Center at 303-387-0001 to obtain that information.
School Lunch Updates
Nutrition Services is excited to welcome back our students! We have been working hard over the last 4 months providing over 700,000 meals to kids all across our county. Now we are ready to return to school and help fuel kids bodies and minds.
Lunch variety will continue to be the same as last year.
  • Two options are available each day with a variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from, as well as milk and water.
  • Serving lines will look different as all items will be individually wrapped to ensure safety. No self serve bars, such as the Harvest Bar will be available. Kids will still have many items to choose from and age-appropriate ala carte items will be available on the main serving line.
  • Many enhanced safety protocols will be in place to ensure the highest level of safety for the students as well as our staff. Pin pads will no longer be used and we are moving to a touchless barcode scanner in their place.
  • Lunch prices for GVA students will be $3.25.
