General Information:

Each day your student has practice they will meet in the wood gym, outside the locker rooms after they have changed. From there they will start practice. Practices are held on site at Bell MS unless otherwise noted. Students can be picked up behind the school, around back using the west field entrance, at the cafeteria doors at 4pm. After care is available until 5pm at a cost of $5/day.


If you need to get a message to your student or reach one of the MSSP staff, please call 303-222-8039 or text 214-206-6363. This phone will be with a Bell MSSP staff member at all times during the program and at games, matches or meets. Voicemails or texts left after hours will not be checked until the next day. This phone remains at the school at night and weekends.


Transportation will be provided to games as often as possible, using Jeffco Schools buses and City of Golden passenger vans. In those instances, transportation will be provided to the game only. There will be no transportation provided back to the school. When neither of these options is available,parents may be asked to assist with carpools for students.

 We will continue to work toward provided full transportation benefits as the program continues to grow.
