Poudre School District update | Thursday, October 1, 2020
Preschoolers, K-2 students return Oct. 5
Only a few days remain until our youngest students are back in school as part of our transition to hybrid education, and we cannot wait to see them. Staff have been hard at work preparing for their return.  

Need help with ParentVUE 
or StudentVUE? 
Is my student in the A or B group? 
A/B group placement for K-12 students is available in ParentVUE. There are no A/B groupings for preschool. Early Childhood Education will continue communicating directly with its families.

Several months into a life-changing global pandemic, national protests, and political discord, some are feeling exhausted, frustrated and powerless and find it is harder to be their best selves. Despite the many impacting events we can’t control, we still have choices. We can choose to be kind in the face of unkindness, uncertainty, and fear. Read more and get links to helpful kindness-boosting resources >>
