Dear Families:

As we prepare for the chance that we will provide remote learning opportunities for our students after spring break, I want to make sure any student who does not have access to a device at home, is provided a device. This will allow for students to have the device ready in the case we need to provide instruction remotely after spring break.  

In the case that we do move to remote learning , you will hear about next steps from your child's teacher following spring break.

If we return to school on Monday, March 23, please send the device back to school with your child, and we will continue with face to face learning!
If your child has indicated that they will not be in attendance on Friday, March 13, your child's teacher may send home a device with them today. 
If your child comes home with a DCSD device, please keep it secured in their backpacks throughout spring break.

If your child is already gone for break and is unable to take home a device, the school district will send out information at a later date about how to check out a device IF we need to provide instruction remotely after spring break.   

Thank you for your support and flexibility as we move through this together.

2020 Census Information

2020 Census Day is quickly approaching. The official date is April 1, however, the online census tool will begin accepting responses in mid-March. 

A complete Census count matters a lot to the students here at Legacy PointThe 2020 count will drive decisions regarding the allocation of more than $675 billion in federal funding to states and communities each year. That includes support for school programs and services such as:

Special education
Free and reduced-price lunch
Reducing class size
Classroom technology
Teacher training
After-school programs
Head Start

Since the last Census findings, the Douglas County School District has received nearly $103 million in vital funds for school nutrition programs and supports for students with special needs, who come from poverty, who are learning English, for disadvantaged students to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards and have a well-rounded education. 

In mid-March, households will begin receiving detailed information on how to participate in the 2020 Census. Everyone living in your home needs to be counted. That includes children and newborn babies, citizens and noncitizens, relatives and nonrelatives, and even those staying with you temporarily.

It’s easier than ever to respond to the census. You can respond in 13 different languages, and you can complete it online, by phone, or by mail.

Your responses to the census are safe and secure. The law requires the U.S. Census Bureau to keep your information confidential, and your responses cannot be used against you in any way.

You have the power to shape your future, and the future of all children, by counting everyone in your home in the 2020 Census.

Registration is now open for our Animal EdVenture camp, hosted by Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures and the Zoology Foundation. Here campers will get to feed a couple of lovable Camels, dance with Toogie the Tortoise, and get up close with a variety of animals. The Zoology foundation is home to alpacas, sheep, goats, ferrets, and so much more! Campers will learn about these fantastic animals each morning, and then in the afternoon, they will head down the road to Stone Canyon. At Stone Canyon, we will provide lunch, play games, shoot archery, and hike around our beautiful 99-acre property.
