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

While the holidays are often a joyous time with friends and family, we know that they can also be stressful, not just for adults, but for children too. In addition to the annual pressure of gift giving, family gathering and travel, the holidays can trigger memories of the loss of loved ones and other traumatic events.

DCSD Board of Directors sitting at dais

On Monday, December 4, the Douglas County School District Board of Education voted unanimously (with six voting members) to approve a resolution to rescind the Choice Scholarship Program. The Resolution outlines three steps to this revocation: 1) Rescind the Choice Scholarship Program, 2) Repeal all district policies specifically related to the Choice Scholarship Program and the School Choice Grant Program, 3) Direct the Board President and/or Interim Superintendent to end the litigation challenging the Choice Scholarship Program in a cost-efficient and timely manner. The resolution takes effect immediately.

HRHS Cyber Patriots

Equifax, Target, Yahoo... Unfortunately it is not uncommon to hear about— or fall victim to— data security breaches as computers become increasingly integrated into our lives. However, a generation of high school students are preparing to fill cybersecurity roles to help protect all of us against future attacks; and many of these future protectors are right here in Douglas County. Meet the Highlands Ranch High School CyberPatriots.
