The Manning Weekly Update
April 15, 2022
1.) We will be sharing our 2022-2023 course description guide with you in our SMORE next Friday, as we've finalized our courses for next year. Our incoming 7th and 8th grade students will then be able to input their top 5 elective choices into Campus during their access class on Thursday, April 28th.
2.) All students will engage in a virtual Safe-2-Tell training during their access class on Thursday, April 21st. As you know, this training is more important than ever as our students navigate young adulthood and may need to report something that they hear or see. This also supports our high behavioral and HEART expectations to make sure to tell an adult or report unsafe behavior if students encounter an issue.
3.) Finally, we will be having our end of year Manning Social on Tuesday, May 24th from 1:15-3:25 p.m. Student council is creating a great event that will support all students. There will be a dance off in the gym, basketball and kickball tournaments outside, and other activities throughout the school (more details to come). We would love parent chaperones for this event. If you are interested, please reach out to Ms. Tracy Pearce, our student council advisor. You can reach Ms. Pearce at Tracy.Pearce@jeffco.k12.co.us.
Students have been asking if we are going to have a school dance this year. The Manning Social is taking the place of a school dance, as we are creating an event where all students can attend and find something that they enjoy.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy this beautiful weather.

Please be advised of the following planned full overnight closures of both directions of 32nd Avenue under the bridges at I-70 Exit 264 from April 17 to April 21.
These closures are related to the Colorado Department of Transportation's I-70 over 32nd Avenue Bridge Replacement project in Wheat Ridge. A reminder that all construction schedules are weather dependent and subject to change.
Sunday, April 17 to Thursday, April 21 - 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly
CDOT and contractor Kraemer North America will implement a full closure of both directions of 32nd Avenue under the bridges at I-70 Exit 264 (Clear Creek Pkwy/32nd Avenue) during overnight hours (8 p.m. to 5 a.m.) from Sunday, April 17 to Thursday, April 21. The closures are necessary to maintain safety while crews drill shafts and begin driving piles for caissons in the 32nd Avenue median.
The closures will be in place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. 32nd Avenue will reopen during nonworking hours and devices will be moved off the roadway.
