How do I Excuse my Student for an Appointment?

Blue Pass!!!!!

If you are needing to pick up your student at a certain time, Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to call us earlier in the day and we will be happy to deliver a blue pass to your student.

A Blue Pass is a student’s pass out of class. For example, if you have an orthodontist appointment in the afternoon, call the attendance line at 970-833-7105 and leave a message with your child’s name, your name and time you would like your student to be released. The school office will then deliver a "blue pass" to your student. When the designated time arrives, your child may show the teacher the blue pass and can leave class to meet you. They will already be checked out in our system and do not need to check out in the office. Parents/Guardians also do not need to come to the office when a Blue Pass is issued.

Happy German Language Day!

Do you know the German word “Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz”? Don’t worry...I won’t translate it; the word is obsolete and insanely long! It does, however, give one an appreciation for the logic and literal nature of the language. To celebrate the German language’s richness, National German Language Day was established on September 11, 2004. German Language Day’s purpose is to promote the language and encourage more people to learn it Why learn German? Here are five reasons: 1) It is the sixth most widely spoken language in the world; 2) German is the language of writers and thinkers; 3) German and English are sister languages; 4) Unlike English, German has three genders; 5) German has some funny proverbs. If you are in the mood to explore something new and more exotic, put learning German on your list. The Goethe Institute celebrates German Language Day every year with all kinds of interesting events. Check out their website Bis nächste Woche! До следующей недели! Alles gute! Всего хорошего!

Our District Needs You!

You can choose to work in a certified classroom position or serve in a classified support role. We will accommodate school preferences—work in your child’s or grandchild’s school or in a school in your neighborhood. Serving as a substitute, you will make a huge difference for our staff who are currently strained to provide coverage for their colleagues in addition to their regular duties. Our students need you now more than ever, even if you can just give a few hours a couple times a week.
