Frequently Asked Questions about DCIS at Fairmont

What is the school uniform?

DCIS is a uniform school. We sell many options for students to wear as tops: DCIS at Fairmont shirts (yellow, green, red, blue, purple, and grey), DCIS at Fairmont Hoodies (black), DCIS at Fairmont long sleeve shirts (green, blue, and red), and our “At DCIS at Fairmont We Believe” shirts. Students may wear anything on the bottom, and close-toed shoes. Uniforms can be purchased in the front office. T-shirts are: 1 for $8, 2 for $15, and 5 for $33.

How do breakfast and lunch work?
  • All students at DCIS are offered breakfast in the classroom at no cost. When students are dropped off at 8:05, students eat in the classroom and complete a morning activity.
  • Lunch can be brought by students, or purchased in our cafeteria. Please fill out a student lunch application here. Students can refill their lunch accounts with cash or online here!
Where do I drop off or pick up my student on foot?

Students will be dropped off and picked up on foot in the back courtyard and playground area of DCIS at Fairmont. They will either line up at their teacher’s outside classroom door, or meet their teacher in their designated area. Any student who arrives after 8:15 a.m. will need to go in the main entrance and sign in. Gates to the back field will be locked between 8:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily for student safety. Pick up and drop off happen at the same spots.

Where can I park or drop off my student via car?
  • For parents who would prefer to drop students off instead of parking, there is a roundabout at the front of the school. During both drop off and pick up, parents can pull through the roundabout, drop their student off, and continue moving through the roundabout. There is no parking in the Kiss & Go so we can ensure smooth movement and the safety of our students crossing the street and walking around the school.
  • Parking can be found on the streets surrounding the schools. Our parking lot at DCIS at Fairmont is barely big enough to accommodate our school staff. The parking lot is closed from 8 to 8:30 a.m., and again from 2:30 to 3 p.m. This is to ensure the safety of our students and their families as they walk through the school and back home for the day.
What are our Safety & Security Policies?

We value ensuring that our students are safe at all times at DCIS at Fairmont. In order to ensure this safety, we need to make sure that all adults who are in the building are identified and checked in. Gates to the back playground area will stayed locked between 8:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Any adult who would like to be in the building between 8:15 a.m. to 2:55 p.m. will need to enter through the main office, check in, and leave identification. This will help us keep all of our students safe.

What is our Attendance Policy?

In order for students to be the most successful, they need to be at school everyday. If your student needs to leave school early or is absent for the day, please call the front office at 720-424-7620. Please bring any documentation for appointments in order for the absence or tardy to be excused.
