  • Electric Bus Update

    We are pleased to report that Bus #1 and Bus #2 are back in full operation and have been taking multiple field trips and athletic trips. The replacement parts for Bus #3 were received yesterday at McCandless Truck Center and will be installed today, so this bus should be back on the road by Monday, February 6th. Unfortunately, due to some recalls on our 24-passenger Bus #11, it will be replaced with a new bus in March. This bus is primarily used for smaller athletic teams, and will hopefully be ready for them in the spring sports season. We have appreciated the attention that Navistar, Highland Electric Fleets, Lightning eMotors, and McCandless Truck Center have given to our buses to ensure that the reliability is improved. If you have any questions, please contact Sam Todd at sam.todd@bvsd.org.

  • BVSD Board of Education (Not Peak to Peak's Board Election) Election This Fall

    This fall, four of the seven Boulder Valley School District’s Board of Education seats will be up for election, including two that are open due to term limits. Open seats include Lafayette (“District G”) where Peak to Peak is located, and parts of Erie (“District D”). It is critical that our charter schools have representation on the local Board of Education as a means to provide diverse educational options for students. In the coming year, Peak to Peak will begin contract renewal negotiations with BVSD. Having a seated board member with charter school knowledge and experience will help these negotiations proceed smoothly. If you are passionate about education and are interested in making a difference in the community and for Peak to Peak, we encourage you to explore this opportunity. Please click for links and additional information.

  • Peak to Peak Completes Purchase of Land East of Campus

    On January 6, 2023, Peak to Peak completed the purchase of a parcel of land that is adjacent to the Peak to Peak campus and located directly to the east of the middle school playground (85 N 120th Street).This one-acre lot will provides additional opportunity for campus expansion, though no final decisions have been made regarding the best use of the parcel. The purchase price was $316,226. Peak to Peak will be conducting some clean-up of debris on the property over the next several weeks. As we explore the future of the campus, we will involve the community in decision-making and revisiting our previously explored designs.

  • Electric Bus Update

    Peak to Peak has been actively engaged with Navistar, the manufacturer of the three 71-passenger IC electric buses; and Lightning EMotors, the manufacturer of the 24-passenger Type A bus. In addition, we are working closely with our electric bus partner, Highland Electric Fleets; and McCandless Truck Center, our bus repair partner. Our vendors are very involved in helping to get our electric buses running effectively and reliably. Electric buses are a new technology and the difficulties we are experiencing are typical with new technologies. We have experienced a variety of issues with the buses, from inadequate heating systems (which have been upgraded) to charging issues. We’ve learned that the cold weather also greatly reduces the battery life for the buses, so we have to be careful with the length of bus trips. Our bus drivers have gone through additional training with Navistar, and McCandless technicians are also receiving additional training. We are confident that we will have the buses operating reliably in the coming weeks. While we have delayed the introduction of morning pick-up service, we have still been able to take field trips and athletic trips on an ongoing basis. We anticipate that by early February, all three large buses will be fully operational. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sam Todd, executive director of operations, at sam.todd@bvsd.org.
