Greetings Soaring Heights Families, 

As we welcome the cooler weather it has been wonderful to see the students continue settling into the school year. Volleyball games have been exciting to watch. It is fantastic to watch our players grow in their confidence and skill.  The Cross Country team had their first meet this week with 14 participants. We had one top ten finisher and multiple students who finished in the top 50.  There will be two Cross Country meets next week:  Monday at Twin Peaks Classical Academy and Friday at Lyons Senior High School for the St. Vrain Invitational. 

Please make sure to send a water bottle with your child every day with their name on it. Our water fountains are available for water bottle refills only. 

The deadline to pay for iPad insurance is September 15th.  We highly encourage ALL families to participate in the insurance program.  It is the most cost effective way to offset any unforeseen damages to your students iPad.

Elementary individual pictures will take place on Monday and Tuesday.  Any middle school students who did not have their photo taken in August will also have their photo taken.

We are looking forward to our Jog-A-Thon and Color Run on September 23.  More information will be coming soon!

Enjoy the weekend!  Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


Best Wishes,
Cyrus Weinberger, Principal

Spirit Week September 19-23
St. Vrain Valley Schools recognizes the importance of being present every day. Student attendance – more than a test score or any other data point – is one of the most accurate indicators of whether a student will graduate and find success after high school. Students who have regular attendance in kindergarten and first grade are far more likely to be at or above grade-level in third grade and in later grades, score much higher in essential math and reading assessments. It is critical for students to attend school daily in order to acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to be college and career ready.

For more information about district attendance policies, please visit the attendance page on the district website.

To report an absence at Soaring Heights, please complete the Report an Absence form or call 303-702-8020.  More information can be found on the attendance page on the Soaring Heights website.

UNIVERSAL FREE MEALS HAVE EXPIRED FOR THE 22/23 SCHOOL YEAR. Upon the start of the school year, students will be charged for lunch unless they qualify for free or reduced-price meals. We are encouraging families to apply for meal benefits for the 2022–2023 school year  to ensure negative balances do not accrue on students’ accounts.

Applying online is the fastest way to get your application processed to ensure no lapse in coverage happens. Applying online also reduces the chance for errors and the need to send applications back to families to correct.

If you do not believe you qualify for free or reduced-price meals, please make sure that there is money on your students’ accounts. You can add money to their account through MySchoolBucks

For more information, please visit the Nutrition Serivces website.

Erie UpLink’s Tiger Packs program can help bridge the food gap over long weekends and holiday breaks for those students who normally have free breakfast and lunch at school.

Families can sign up online at https://www.erieuplink.org/tiger-pack-registration.  Registration must be done each school year.
