Charter School Families - We Need Your Help
Earlier this week, House Bill 1295 was officially introduced at the Colorado State Capitol. If passed, this damaging bill would significantly hurt public charter schools by making it virtually impossible to challenge district decisions against them.
Please take two minutes to learn more about the bill and add your voice to the thousands of charter school families, staff, and supporters telling legislators to vote "NO" on this dangerous proposal.
We should be basing all of our education decisions as a state on what is in the best interest of our students. This legislation would fundamentally undermine that.
Thank you for adding your voice to support the power of choice for students!

CEC Celebration Tree
Students, It has been a year... We all have things we want to leave behind, and we all have things we want to celebrate. Stop by the Wolf Den and add these ideas to our Celebration Tree! Make a leaf or a flower to add to the crown of the tree that marks something you are celebrating. Make another to add to the bottom of the tree that marks something you are leaving behind. There are boxes to put your leaf or flower in so it can be added anonymously, but you can always sign your name if you like! See you in the Wolf Den!
Covid - 19 Updates
The graph below will be updated each week to help keep you informed of any Covid cases reported to the school. We will only include information on probable or confirmed cases of staff or students that have been in the school within 2 weeks of the designation. If your student is in close contact with any staff or other students who are a confirmed or probable case, we will contact you directly with specific information. We ask that you please continue to contact the school Health Office if your student is showing any Covid-19 symptoms or has been exposed to someone with Covid-19.
