Additional Supply Pickup

Unfortunately, at the time of the first materials pickup math workbooks had not been delivered. We have scheduled an additional materials pickup next week August 24th-August 28th. Please stop by any day between the hours of 8:00am-3:00pm to pick up your materials. In an effort to comply with social distancing regulations, we will have materials bagged, labeled and ready for pick up. Please ring the bell at the front office and let us know the student you are here to pick up for and we will bring the materials out to you. LaunchED students do not need to pick up any materials. Thank you!

Mrs. Shaffer’s STEM Update

Greetings! I wanted to send an update to let you know that we will still be working on STEM projects and coding this year, to the best of our abilities. If you picked up your materials last week, there was a Mystery Challenge Bag for each student. If you didn’t receive one, please let me know and I will make one that you can pick up for your child. I will be meeting with classes during their morning meetings, or science times, once each week while we’re online . For our first meeting, we’ll be talking about the design process and what they made for their challenge. You can share pictures of their creations with me through email, Seesaw, or Schoology.


In the meantime, if you are looking for some more STEM activities you can do at home, check out this list: 77 STEM Activities for Families


I look forward to continuing our STEM work this year.

Welcome to the Counseling Office

Through my partnership with students, parents, and teachers I aim to provide students with all the skills they need to be successful, academically, socially, and emotionally. I work with students by providing whole class lessons, in small groups to target specific skills, and individually to provide further support. My goal is ensure all students feel confident in themselves to set and attain goals, seek help when needed, and advocate for themselves and others. I am excited to be working with this community in any platform. Please reach out!

Nutrition Services

St. Vrain Valley Schools has implemented a number of protocols to ensure that students continue to receive nutritious meals during school closures while maintaining high standards for health and safety.


Longmont Estates will offer a curbside meal program. Student meals will be served from 11-12:30 Monday through Friday and a sack lunch and breakfast will be offered daily.


A student ID number will be needed to pick up meals at the curbside stops. Meals will be "no charge" for any student who qualifies for the 2020-21 free and reduced meal program and all other student meals will cost $5.00 for lunch and breakfast for the following day.


Families may complete a new free and reduced lunch application at https://www.myschoolapps.com for this school year. Paper applications are also available upon request.

Milk Caps for Moola

Longmont Dairy Farm will donate 5¢ for every bottle cap that we collect from Longmont Dairy produced products (including Cold Brew Coffee, Iced Tea, Coffee Creamers, Milk, Cream, Lemonade and Orange Juice).


Since 2014, over $300,000 has been donated back to participating schools through the Milk Caps for Moola program. Schools are free to spend these funds as they wish: for good behavior rewards, special sports equipment, and field trips. Collect caps from your family or your neighbors.


It's fun and easy to collect milk bottle caps and earn money for our school.
