Our Staff is beginning to work on plans for the 2024-2025 School Year:

• We do not take Teacher Requests for the upcoming school year. However, if you are interested in filling out our Optional Parent Input Form, please call the Office (970-488-7935) and we will put a form in an envelope to give to your student. These forms must be returned by March 22, 2024.

Extra Clothes for Health Office

The Health Office is in need of all sizes of sweatpants and leggings! All donations are appreciated!




Upcoming State and District Required Assessments:

n our spring semester we will be administering annual state and district required assessments. Please make note of the dates for the assessments your child will be taking and, whenever possible, please avoid absences during the testing periods. Please note that, on testing days, if students arrive late after testing has begun, they will not be able to join their class until testing has completed for the day. Having students on time and present on testing days helps us gather valuable data while minimizing interruptions to daily instruction. Please help us meet that goal!

Typically, assessments begin in the morning and conclude each day prior to lunch.
