Just a reminder that McAuliffe does not have school this Friday, October 18th or Monday, October 21st for Fall Break. Enjoy the long weekend and we look forward to seeing all McAuliffe students on Tuesday, October 22nd. Tuesday will be a WHITE day. DPS bus transportation will be provided on Tuesday for eligible riders.
McAuliffe International and DSST are co-hosting a DPS School Board Candidate Forum on Thursday, October 24th at McAuliffe. Come meet the at-large candidates and hear where they stand on the issues that matter. The forum will be in the McAuliffe auditorium from 5:30-8:00pm. Space is limited, please RSVP here.
New for the 2019-20 school year, all DPS schools (regardless of start time) will be delayed by two hours if a Weather Delay is called by DPS. This Weather Delay Schedule is designed to provide school buses additional time to pick up students and reduce student wait time in severe weather. The decision to close or delay school will be made by the superintendent based on information provided by representatives from DPS Transportation Services, transportation agencies and the weather bureau. Review this flier outlining the process in the event DPS calls a weather delay.
Yearbooks for the 2910-20 school year can be purchased through MySchoolBucks for $35. The sale ends on February 1, 2020. Yearbooks will be distributed in May and extra yearbooks will not be available for purchase at that time.
McAuliffe will offer School Tours for parents and their current 5th grade student on most Friday mornings from October 4th, 2019 through February 14th, 2020. These tours will run from 8:40am-9:40am. Due to the enrollment demand and the increasing student population in the boundary, we ask that ONLY current residents of the Greater Park Hill / Stapleton shared middle school enrollment boundary or those intending to move to our boundary area register for the School Tours. We will limit each School Tour to 42 families a day to reduce the impact on our teachers and students. Please do not bring younger siblings on the School Tour. Please sign-up for school tours here.
**McAuliffe International does not do student-shadowing**
Open House – Thursday, December 12th
McAuliffe International School is pleased to offer an Open House on Thursday, December 12th from 7:00-8:00pm for families to learn more about our school. Parents and their current 5th grade student are welcome to attend our Open House together.

If you have attended the School Tour it is not necessary to attend the Open House. Please sign-up for the Open House here.
