SCHOOL DISTRICT UPDATES |

L

ocal school district educators, administrators and support staff are hard at work preparing for the upcoming 2019-20 school year. Below, find updates from each of our local districts, which will help you and your school-agers start the new school year out on the right foot. From start dates to lunch costs to principal changes, here’s what’s new:

Poudre School District School start dates

First days of school for the district will be as follows:

• Grades 6 & 9 (transition day): August 19 • All students: August 20

Visit www.psdschools.org/your-district/ calendars for more information. Schools will host registration days in early August for new and incoming students who still need to register. Elementary registration days are Aug. 1 and 2. If you need assistance, please contact your school. Check out the back-to-school news item online (available in August) for information regarding student resources, transportation and more at www. psdschools.org. Families: Remember that 2019-20 marks the start of new bell schedules in PSD. Learn more at bit.ly/ PSDbellschedulechanges.

School choice and registration information The first consideration deadline to apply for School of Choice for the 2020-21 school year is noon on Jan. 17 for elementary and secondary students. Jan. 16 is the deadline to register students for kindergarten at their neighborhood school. Parents and guardians are required to register their kindergarten student at their neighborhood school even if they have already submitted a School of Choice application. More information regarding school choice, kindergarten registration and open houses will be available after the start of school. 8 | RMPARENT

SchoolPay—Pay your fees online

SchoolPay offers an easy and secure way to make payments to your children’s meal account and their school electronically. The SchoolPay payment portal accepts payments for meals, as well as athletic participation fees, course fees and charges, field trips, yearbooks and merchandise.  Payments can be made online with credit/debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover Card) or at your child’s school. A convenience fee of approximately 3.35 percent is added to credit/debit card transactions for non-meal related items, regardless of whether payment is made online or at the school. A $1 transaction fee is charged for meal payments to offset the credit card processing fee. Parents must have an account to use SchoolPay, but registration is free. Visit the PSD website for more information and an FAQ about SchoolPay.  Please contact your school if you need assistance with SchoolPay.

Free all-day kindergarten

Poudre School District will offer free allday kindergarten to families beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. Until now PSD families have paid tuition for allday kindergarten because state funding did not cover all the costs for full-day kindergarten programs. With the passage of House Bill 1262, Colorado will fund a student enrolled in a full-day kindergarten program at the same amount as students enrolled full-time in other grades beginning this year. This will allow Colorado school districts to offer free all-day kindergarten. Learn more at www.psdschools.org/node/1279.

Free and reduced-price meals, fee waivers

Did you know? If your child is eligible for free or reduced-price meals in Poudre School District, you may also be able to take advantage of another fantastic benefit: waivers for some school fees and charges. To be eligible for these benefits, you must first complete two forms each school year. Free and Reduced-Priced Meal online application (or you may pick up an application at PSD’s Child Nutrition office, 1502 S. Timberline Road, in Fort Collins). Your child’s free/reduced meal eligibility status is confidential.  PSD’s Permission to Share


Information for Fee Waivers and Programs to Receive Goods and Services form available online through the PSD ParentVUE portal. Completing the form gives PSD’s Child Nutrition Department permission to share your child’s eligibility status with other district officials. These officials must also maintain confidentiality of your child’s eligibility status. Waivers are available for some but not all fees and charges, including summer school tuition, extra-curricular activities and supplies, curricular supply costs, and more. After you submit the form and your child is approved, SchoolPay will automatically update fees/charges that are eligible for a waiver, displaying as $0 balance due once you proceed to checkout in SchoolPay. 

Immunizations and student health

Contact: Call the school nurse if you have any questions. Immunizations—Colorado law requires students who attend school to be vaccinated against many diseases that vaccines can prevent.

Letter from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment

Students registering in a PSD school are required to present proof of immunization or a signed State of Colorado Exemption Certificate or Immunization Medical Exemption form, or a parent statement for personal or religious exemptions. Families with returning students must keep their child’s immunizations current. Full details on immunization requirements are available from the state of Colorado. Immunization requirements are strictly enforced and students who don’t meet requirements will be denied attendance according to Colorado Revised Statues 25-4-902. To obtain immunizations free or at a low cost, call the Family Health Line at 303-692-2229 or 1-800-6887777 or the Larimer County Health Department at 970-498-6700.

Student Health

Please inform your school’s healthcare

staff if your child has special health concerns, allergies, medications or dietary needs. A complete physical exam is required for students entering the preschool program and recommended for students K-4. Learn more about student wellness and PSD’s support programs at www.psdschools.org/ programs-services/student-wellness.

PSD Partnerships and Volunteers

The PSD Partnership Center connects local businesses, community organizations and volunteers to schools and teachers to support and enhance student learning, work experiences and community involvement.  “By collaborating with each other, we help students be successful in and out of the classroom, while creating a skilled future workforce and caring community members. That is a win-win for all!”  PSD has a variety of partnerships that include:

• Small and large business partnerships for student workplace learning opportunities, mentoring, job shadowing, and more.  • Community and nonprofit organizations that support PSD students and staff through programs like the “Supply Our Students” school supply drive, teacher appreciation offerings and events, in-class reading programs, and fundraisers.  • Parents and community members who volunteer their time and talents to help students and staff. 

To learn more about how to register to be a PSD volunteer and various opportunities, visit www.psdschools. org/PSDpartnerships, or contact Monique Jorgensen at 970-490-3517 or mjorgens@psdschools.org.

Martinez ELEMENTARY wins award for project-based learning

The Buck Institute recognized Billie Martinez Elementary School as a PBL Champion School for Education at its PBL World conference in Napa Valley, California on June 20. “Your strategic and ongoing approach to implementing and supporting project-based learning the last few years serve as a valuable example for other schools around the country,” said Brandon Wiley, chief program officer for PBL Works—Buck Institute

for Education, in the notification letter for the award. Billie Martinez began implementing project-based learning in 2017 as part of its Innovation Plan with the Colorado Department of Education. Since implementing, the school’s performance rating has gone from one of the lowest to the highest rating given by the CDE. “This is the hardest work we have every loved,” said Principal Monica Draper, who accepted the award in California. “Education at Martinez used to be about answering questions. Now, it’s about us asking questions.” Project-based learning is a handsone approach to learning and problem solving that is implemented across subjects and grade levels at Billie Martinez Elementary School. It uses technology, science and art-based projects, language and mathematics to help students solve problems and answer questions. It is aligned with the Colorado grade-level standards.  

District 6 receives grant for safety and security

Greeley-Evans School District 6 has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the state of Colorado through its 2019 School Access for Emergency Response grant program. The grant will be used to purchase radios and radio towers that will allow school safety teams at all schools, including charter schools, to be in direct radio communication with the Greeley Police Department, Evans Police Department and Weld County Sheriff ’s office during an emergency. The grant will also provide training for safety teams and law enforcement agencies on crisis management and use of the radios. “We are grateful to the state for recognizing the need here in Greeley and Evans to have a coordinated communication system that can be utilized during a crisis,” said John Gates, Chief of Safety and Security for District 6. District 6 received the largest grant awarded by the SAFER program this year. A total of $4.9 million dollars was awarded to eight school districts this year through the competitive grant program.
