NO SCHOOL - Non-Student Contact Day

May 3rd - May 7th
Soaring Heights SPIRIT WEEK
Dear Soaring Heights Families,
 
The week of May 3rd-7th is dedicated to School Spirit and Teacher Appreciation.  This is a great opportunity to support our dedicated staff and for students to have some fun while building community.  We encourage everyone to take part in the different activities (see details below). 
 
As the last weeks of the school year are upon us, we are focusing on a strong academic finish and engaging students in meaningful end of the year activities. Please take time to work with your child to identify one or two goals to complete for the end of the year.  Taking advantage of these last weeks of school, will help ensure students experience success and prepare them for next year.
 
While we are working hard to have as “normal” as possible end of year celebrations for our students, parents will still need to join events virtually.  Information about kindergarten, 5thgrade and 8thgrade continuation ceremonies are listed below.  We will be reaching out to parents to ensure students have permission to participate as these events which will be live streamed.  
 
Please take a look at the COVID outside mask update below, as regulations are changing at the state and county levels.
 
We are incredibly proud of our students' and teachers' hard work and resiliency.  Their accomplishments and growth despite challenging circumstances speak volumes about their character. We look forward to celebrating our students.
 
Please let us know if you have questions or need assistance.
 
Best wishes,
Cyrus Weinberger, Principal

 
New Mask Guidance

With upcoming changes to the state and county COVID-19 Dial Framework, we wanted to provide an update on our comprehensive school health and safety measures for the remainder of the school year. Students will continue to be required to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, however, beginning next week, mask wearing will become optional when students are outside. Additionally, our school will continue our increased cleaning and sanitizing protocols, the use of our high-quality MERV-11air ventilation HVAC systems, increased hand washing and sanitizing, and we continue to ask parents to conduct daily symptom checks before sending students to school. Community-wide COVID-19 testing continues to be available at our Innovation Center site, and we will continue to follow Boulder County Public Health quarantining protocols whenever there is a confirmed or suspected case in our school. If you have any questions about our health and safety protocols, please contact our front office at 303-702-8020. 
Mark your calendars for our end of year celebrations. Students will participate in-person. Parents may join virtually. We will be sharing virtual celebration links to parents as the dates get closer.

Student Placement Survey 

Due by April 30

As we begin to place students in classes for next year, it would be helpful for you to describe the learning needs of your child. Is there anything you would like the school to know about how your child learns or any special circumstance we should be aware of? Thank you for providing this information. Complete the survey here.
We are excited to announce Spirit Week starting May 3rd.
The PTO will be having a spirit wear sale at pickup on Tuesday, April 27th and Wednesday, April 28th. We'll be outside the main entrance on Tuesday and the Kindergarten/Preschool entrance on Wednesday. Pick up your spirit wear and be ready for Spirit Week the following week! That week is also Teacher Appreciation Week. Here's the schedule of things we're asking kids to participate in for that:

Monday (5/3): Shower teachers & staff members with flowers! Bring your
own or the PTO will be selling at drop off for $1 each (cash only).

Tuesday (5/4): Have your student give a sweet compliment to any staff members they see!

Wednesday (5/5): Stock the classroom - bring things your teacher needs or may be running low on!

Thursday (5/6): Have your student bring their teachers (don’t forget Specials teachers!) or other staff members a sweet treat!

Important Drive Line Reminders

We appreciate your help and support as we work to smooth out our pick-up and drop-off procedures.  We have had some near accidents on County Road 5 and as result have created some new procedures in consultation with local law enforcement and our SVVSD safety manager.  Please use the procedures below along with the attached map to review the safest route for entering the school.

  • Cars may enter the Soaring Heights campus through the designated turn lane only (do not use the main northbound through lane to turn into the school)

  • Access outside of the turn lane will be coned off

  • Kindergarten and preschool parents may merge into the second lane in the roundabout to access the kindergarten/preschool parking lot after entering campus

  • Be extra careful when making a left at the intersection of Colliers Pkwy and County Road 5 as this is a major crossing for our students

Thank you for following these procedures.  Please remember to place a sign with student name and teacher on your windshield.  Parents may also use the high school bus loop to park after 8:00 am and after 3:00 pm.

Please take a moment to review this visual to help understand how the Drive Line works when dropping off and picking up students at Soaring Heights.
