Happy New Year!

Welcome back!


I hope everyone has stayed safe and healthy. I am excited to see all of the students as we come back to in-person learning starting next Monday, January 11th!


School on January 11th will begin the same way we left in November in terms of all of the safety procedures that we have in place. I have included them in the newsletter. This does include everyone wearing masks while on school grounds and staggered arrival and dismissal.


Included below is some information about Kindergarten Roundup and School of Choice. Yes, it's time to start thinking about next school year!


Finally, I hope you got the chance to see the email from the district about the OPTIONAL saliva testing that we are doing in the schools, starting on Monday. Below is the link, and if you have any questions please contact our nurse, Sanna Nazarali via email at snazarali@cherrycreekschools.org or call after Monday at 720.886.8605.


IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ONGOING RANDOM AND OPTIONAL SCHOOL-BASED TESTING CLICK HERE: https://www.primarybio.com/l/cherry. PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK “YES” ON THE QUESTIONNAIRE BEFORE THE CONSENT FORM.


We will see you all soon!

Tom McDowell, Principal

School of Choice

The Cherry Creek School District gives its district residents the opportunity to apply for enrollment in the Cherry Creek school/program of their choice. Families may request that their child attend a Cherry Creek school outside the assigned attendance area. The School of Choice application is available online during the month of January. There is not a specific time that the forms will be made available or removed on Feb 1st. Please do not wait until the last minute to submit your application as late applications will not be accepted.


There are NO PAPER FORMS available for the School of Choice application process. Applications are considered based on lottery and space availability. Priority is given to students with siblings currently attending the requested school and projected to return the following year. Priority is also given to children of district employees. There is a limit of one (1) application per student and all information is verified for accuracy.


Parents are notified of the results by March 15th. Appeals may be submitted in writing to District Admissions by April 15th. The Appeals Committee will review all letters​ received, and parents will be notified of the final decision by May 15th.
