Dear Soaring Heights Families,
Thank you for a terrific first three days of school. It is wonderful to hear the halls filled with laughter and excitement as our students make new friends and learn the routines of school. We are learning about our school motto RISE (Responsibility, Integrity, Service, and Excellence). These traits can be applied to any situation and are directly related to school-wide behavior expectations. Please take the time review RISE with you child(ren) as this is something that we will be referring to throughout the year. Students will have the opportunity to earn pride awards for exhibiting these traits. Additionally, middle school students will be able to earn three levels of badges in the following areas: academics, extra-curricular activities, citizenship, health & wellness, community service, attendance, mentoring, and school spirit.
Please take a moment to review the district Code of Conduct. All families are required to sign the acknowledgment receipt for the SVVSD Code of Conduct. Please see the information below how to sign the acknowledgement electronically.
We are excited to see everyone during our Back to School Nights on August 30 (grades K-2), August 31 (grades 3-5) and September 1 (grades 6-8). Back to School Nights will be one hour in duration for each grade level and will be staggered between 4:30-6:30. More Detailed information to come shortly.
Thank you for your patience during pick-up and drop off. As a reminder, it is important to put a sign with your child’s name and teacher in your windshield, pull as far forward as possible and to pick up only in designated areas (do not have your child meet you on CR5).

Please familiarize yourself and your child with the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). Throughout St. Vrain Valley School District, our schools use the SRP as a common procedure and language for all emergency drills. Every month we will conduct a fire drill, along with two yearly lockdown drills, lockout drills, and shelter in place drills. Teachers and staff will use the same language when performing drills and talking with children. The protocols are posted in every classroom. More extensive materials on our protocols can be found here. We will have our first fire drill next week.
We strongly encourage you to send healthy snacks for your child. Doing so will help students sustain their energy throughout the day and perform to their best abilities. Please use the suggested snack list as a guideline. For more information on our food policies, see the Student Family Handbook on our website. Please remember we do not celebrate birthdays with treats for an entire class and students are not allowed to order Door Dash during the school day.
Middle school students interested in girls’ volleyball or cross country (5th graders can participate) can register using the information below.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance. We are looking forward to an amazing year.
