Equity Corner Note from Superintendent Marrero, “Addressing the Colorado Department of Education Findings”

Reminder: October Count On October 3rd, schools throughout the state of Colorado perform attendance counts. These counts determine funding allocations for schools and are vital for our budget and ensuring staffing and school support for your children. We request that all families have their children at school this day if at all possible. The exception to this is if your child is sick, please keep them at home. Every classroom with on-time, perfect attendance will receive extra ROAR tickets and an extra recess to be determined by their teacher. Reminder: Join our Collaborative School Committee Park Hill is looking for 2-3 parents to join the Collaborative School Committee (CSC). The CSC meets once every 6-8 weeks in the afternoons or early evenings.
