We are so excited to be starting the 2019-2020 school year and beginning a new adventure in learning AVID with our students. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. We will be using AVID strategies to engage our students and provide them with the critical skills to become confident, independent thinkers. We are so excited to see our students grow with these strategies and be able to provide additional supports as they start to become college and career ready! Look for more information as the year goes on!
Flu season is right around the corner. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated this season. Here are some other tips for staying healthy:
• Wash your hands frequently during the flu season.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
• Avoid contact with people who are sick.
• Cover your mouth or tuck it into your elbow when coughing or sneezing and encourage others to do so.
• Do not share drinks!

Also, we recently completed Vision and Hearing screenings for your child in the school. If you received a “Referral letter” this means that your child needs to see a professional. Do you need help with this? Ask us for more information about obtaining resources.
District 6 Headlines
The goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. The Census Bureau will continue to improve its use of mobile technology, geospatial innovations, and internet self-response. For schools, the U.S. Census helps determine how much federal income comes into your school district every year in the form of nutrition disbursements, special education funding from IDEA, and Title 1 funding. Between 2011 and 2018, Colorado school districts received $3.56 billion. Learn more about the U.S. Census. It's important. It's easy. It's safe.
