Dear Everitt Families

We are so excited to welcome our Hybrid Learners back to in person learning, starting Monday, January 25. Miss Debbie sent all hybrid families an email with a reminder of their cohort and the days we have them scheduled to learn in person. Please give us a call at 303-982-1580 if you need further clarification about your student's schedule.

The hybrid learning bell schedule, screening procedures, lunch procedures, entrances, bus routes, etc. are all exactly the same as the structures we got used to back in the fall. I have included pictures and videos to help remind your students as they get ready to return to school!

As always, thank you for believing in the power of neighborhood schools to bring our communities together, and thank you for sharing your kids with us; it is our honor to serve them.


Jeena Templeton, Principal

Everitt Middle School

Individual Career Academic Plan for 7th and 8th Grade Students:

On Fridays during the month of February, Everitt's 7th and 8th-grade students will be receiving asynchronous lessons for Colorado's ICAP. ICAP, Individual Career Academic Plans, guide students in grades 7 through 12 in envisioning and creating a plan for their future after high school. Everitt's 7th graders will explore the reality of what it cost to live the lifestyle they dream of their future-self living, as well as learn about various post-secondary options available to them. Everitt's 8th grade students will learn some nitty-gritty facts about high school academics and about Jeffco's Warren Tech program. They will also work on creating academic, social, and personal goals for their 9th-grade year. Counselors will be available on Zoom these days for students to drop in if they need support with the lessons.

2021-2022 School Year Registration

Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions about this process or registration for next year. -Kirsten Aronson, Allison MacDonald & Kelsey Gaines
