The Manning Weekly Update

March 4, 2022

Manning Community,

Happy Friday! Where did February go? I can't believe it's March 4th already and what a beautiful start to March! As we are only two weeks away from spring break, I am wondering where the year has gone. I don't have a lot to report this week other than I'm cancelling our parent partnership meeting next week, since parent partnership met twice in February. Our next parent partnership meeting will be on Tuesday, April 12th.

We are grateful that we are given the opportunity to educate your child/children on a daily basis!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Better Together,

Christian Ramaker

ALERT - Important Upcoming Bridge Replacement I-70 & 32nd Ave

Attention Manning Parents and Guardians:

Please review the following information regarding the upcoming bridge replacement construction that may impact your and your student's commute to and from Manning. The project will begin mid-February 2022 and is expected to be completed in the late Fall 2023.

We recommend that Manning Parents and Guardians familiarize themselves with the project details to find an alternate route or allocate extra time if needed.

We are also asking parents to try and minimize the student walking traffic around this intersection before and after school.

The two documents are available in printed form in the main office or in pdf format in the most recent Manning Weekly Newsletter. Please refer to the digital pdf to access the links included on the documents.

There is a new tool from Jeffco, "Student Insights".
