Welcome to LaunchPods!
We work alongside DPS teachers and virtual learning platforms to assist students in the transition to remote learning. So you, the parent, can rest assured that your student gets accountability in their classes and an educational experience that works for them.
Safety of students and staff are a top priority. We adhere to the most current CDC regulations and additional safety guidelines addressing Covid-19 prevention.
LaunchPods is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm on school days. Each weekday morning, you will drop off your child at our facility between 8am and 9am, before live online sessions begin. You will pick up your child between 5pm and 6pm.
During the day, students will adhere to the DPS schedule. During flex hours, asynchronous learning days, and certain hours on Fridays, students will have the opportunity to participate in our educational activities, such as community learning and flex learning modules.
At this time transportation and lunch are not provided, but we are working to secure reduced lunch delivery to our facility.
