Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us

Dear CRE Students, Parents and Families,
Flu season has begun! DCSD schools are beginning to see cases of Influenza as we are getting really into the swing of flu season. We have also seen a lot of fever, stomach bugs and other yucky stuff.
Please remind your students of the importance of frequent hand washing and covering their mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. If your child is running a fever or showing other symptoms of the flu, please keep them home.
As a reminder, we require that students are fever free (without the use of Tylenol and Motrin) for 24 hours before they return to school. They must be free of vomiting and diarrhea for 48 hours before they return to school. Please contact our school nurse, Amanda Lytton, for any questions or concerns regarding student illness. 
Here's a little video you can show your students!

District News

DCSD is requesting parent input on the health and wellness of our students. Last year, DCSD received a large planning grant from Colorado Health Foundation in an effort to assess how the district supports students through the lens of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC). The mission of this grant is to review the current state of DCSD's student health and wellness program, and then formulate a three to five-year plan based on stakeholders’ needs, the latest research, and best practices. As part of this process, we would like your input.

How are we doing?

We want to hear from you! How often do you prefer to receive email newsletters from DCSD? How can we improve the news and information you receive? This brief survey should only take a minute or two of your time. Thank you for giving us your input!

Tell us what you think, here!

It may look like a plain, white shipping container was just parked on the backyard grounds of Mountain Vista High School. The contents of the container are anything but plain, though. Walking inside the container, different colors of ambient lighting glow, futuristic-looking equipment and tall towers are suspended from the ceiling, and the humidity level is set to 70 percent. The container has been recycled into a new kind of learning opportunity for students.
