A Message From the Front Office

Cimarron Community,


Below we have several updates regarding our recent transition to the current synchronous hybrid model. As we continue towards our eventual return to full in person learning, we would like to express our gratitude for all the support that you all have provided thus far. Our theme this year of "Cimarron Strong" has been evident both in and out of the building. Thank you for your continued partnership as we put in the work necessary to do what's best for our kids.

Attendance

Dear Parents,

Now that we have transitioned to hybrid/synchronous learning in the building, there has been a lot of confusion around absences and attendance. If/when a student is going to be absent from class for any reason other than quarantine, please do not have them attend classes virtually. Please call the attendance line at 720-433-0122.

Be RED Donations

Our BeRED (Respectful - Excellent - Determined) program at Cimarron needs your help! Throughout the year, staff will be passing out RED cards to students observed being a good person and working hard. We reward students doing the right thing by doing a weekly drawing at lunch as a way to celebrate these amazing students! We will be accepting donations that we will use as prizes students can win throughout the year. Those who would like to contribute can drop donations off at the main office. Gift cards make great prizes that students get excited about winning if you are looking for donation ideas.


Thank you for supporting our BeRED program!
