Dear Soaring Heights Families,

May is here and we are seeing so much progress and reward for the hard work our students have put into this year. i-Ready has shown promising results as we continue to wind down our end of year testing. In a year of many changes and opportunities to pivot in this academic year, students and teachers have done an outstanding job. 

We are excited to host the Innovation Center Mobile Lab. There will be many hands on STEM based activities for students to experience. Our partners from Anschutz Neuroscience Program will also be on site to facilitate other hands on experiments. Soaring Heights Staff will be providing opportunities for students to experience VR and other technologies from the school. All activities will be outside and students can rotate between stations. We hope to see you at this event. Please make sure your student is accompanied by an adult. 

We are preparing for our Kindergarten graduation, Fifth grade continuation and Middle School bridge ceremony. Please look for communication regarding how to view these events online as your student participates in the milestone events. Please see below for more information. 

We will have the final lost and found items in our May 20th newsletter and will hold on to items until June 10th. After this time we will be donating these items to charity. 

We are looking forward to celebrating the successes at each grade level as we wrap up this unique and memorable year. 

We hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
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. 

Safe with 7


It's important to screen every student every day before allowing them to attend school.

Curbside Meals on Fridays

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.
