Elbert School will be hosting the Black Forest League Junior High Volleyball tournament on Saturday, October 20th.
October is Colorado Safe Schools Month. We would like to use this opportunity to highlight the procedures the District has implemented should it be necessary to evacuate our building. There are a number of situations that may occur at our school that would prompt us to evacuate our school building or release students early, including weather, a power or water outage, as well as a crisis at or near the school. Please see IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding the school's procedures.
SNOW DAY DETERMINATION-We were fortunate to experience mild weather during the first quarter. However, we all know that colder, inclement weather is just around the corner. With the changing weather conditions come difficult decisions as we look at determining district snow days. Various factors are examined before a decision is made to cancel school, have a late start, or dismiss students early. Please see the SNOW DAY DETERMINATION letter for additional information.
Here is the latest edition of the Bulldog Community Beat for the month of October packed with pictures and information. Thanks to our Editor-In-Chief, Mrs. Gould, for a great monthly newsletter
Elbert School students are participating in a fundraiser called Art to Remember. Please see the informational flyer for more information.
We are happy to announce the launch of EZSchoolPay...the secure online way to pay for lunches and fees online.
Attached is a Parent How-To Guide that will walk you through the process of setting up an account. Once you have a valid account, you may immediately pay any class fees owed, and prepay for your child’s lunches. This easy to use system will update your account within 10 minutes of making a purchase. All class fees, sports participation fees and some miscellaneous items are listed, and you can use this system any time day or night. You also have the option of an automatic withdrawal from your bank or credit card to keep your lunch account funded, and to get reminders when the lunch account is low. *You will be charged a small fee each time you use this system (currently $3.50). Participation in EZSchoolPay is completely voluntary.
If you have any questions about the Lunch account, please contact Pam Eads or Lynette Rogers at 303-648-3030 EXT 535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions about class or sports fees, please contact the office 303-648-3030.
Thank you and we hope you will find this new service convenient!
