  • Masks: With the uptick in COVID cases, please send your student to school with a mask and at lease 1 extra mask in case they need to replace their initial mask. Also, all parents and guardians who drop-off and pick-up students must wear a mask on school grounds. We also ask that you continue to call the attendance line at 720-424-9398 to report your student is sick with any symptoms or will be tardy. We appreciate parents being so vigilant to keep our students safe!

The lunch will be turkey, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, dinner roll and for dessert, a sweet potato cake. All lunches are free but we need to know how many students will be eating a Thanksgiving lunch in order to cook the right amount of food. Thank you!
