St. Vrain Valley School students and staff are invited to celebrate Computer Science Education Week (CSED Week) through a series of engagement opportunities available online including robot programming, code writing, and live virtual sessions with industry partners highlighting different career pathways.
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this time of great complexity and challenge for our community. On Wednesday, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) informed us that Boulder County is moving to level Orange on the Colorado Covid Dial. At level Orange on the dial, the Governor’s Office, CDPHE, and BCPH continue to support various models of in-person learning.
Thank you for your partnership and and support in the academic growth, safety and well-being of our students. Thank you to those parents/guardians who have completed the Code of Conduct form! This important document guides students and staff on expectations for school conduct and the consequences for behaviors that fall outside of these expectations.
As families plan their transition to middle and high school next year, schools are hosting virtual open houses to answer questions and share information about the many program offerings across St. Vrain Valley Schools.
We have been closely monitoring the Cal-Wood Fire, in partnership with the Boulder Office of Emergency Management and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, as the fire spread and evacuation areas are impacting several areas within our district community. Firefighting crews have done an outstanding job working to contain the northern and eastern spread of the fire, but we know that wildfires can be unpredictable and we must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity.
The health and safety of our students, families, teachers, and staff will always be our highest priority. To this end, we will be instituting a number of health and safety measures for the return to hybrid in-person learning that are in alignment with the recommendations of our health agency partners.
