Ballot Measures 4A and 4B
Citizens of the Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) will have the opportunity this November to vote for Ballot Measures 4A and 4B, allowing the distribution of substantial funds to CCSD, as well as to Cherry Creek Academy (CCA).  Click here for more detailed information.
Traffic Reminder
Please remember to yield when pedestrians are present, even when the light is green. Please do not make a turn until all pedestrians are on the sidewalk and completely out of the crosswalk. Per Colorado statute 42-4-802, the failure to yield to the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk in a school zone is a four point ticket and comes with a fine enhancer.
