NEW Slight Delay in Board of Directors Election Results
Due to a small technical error from Simply Voting, a small number of ballots need to be cured. Simply Voting is rectifying the situation but that will delay the results for 48 hours. We apologize for making you wait a bit longer but the voting process must be completed. We will be contacting the candidates with results on Saturday, May 15th at approximately 2:00 PM. We will then announce the results to the community over the weekend.
NEW Reminder that Peak to Peak Returning to Full-Time In-Person Learning Next Year
Barring any surge in the community spread of the virus that would prevent schools from operating normally, Peak to Peak will be returning to regular, full-time, in-person learning for the 21-22 school year. There will be no distance learning option for the 21-22 school year. Families who would like a guaranteed option for distance learning next year will need to explore other school options within BVSD or elsewhere to support this. Similarly, all staff will be expected to return to work in-person next year. We have made this decision based on the resources we have available at Peak to Peak, and because we have reached a point in the pandemic where it is clear that in-person learning can be conducted safely. Peak to Peak is not able to hold any enrollment seats for families that choose to enroll their student(s) in another school. Please visit BVSD's Enrollment page for more information about options that are available within the district.
NEW Summer Reading and School Supply Lists for 2021-2022

NEW K-12 Kindness Goose Chase Results
The K-12 Kindness Goose Chase challenge organized by our Middle School Student Council was completed last week! The challenges included sending messages of hope and support to families, teachers, and the community. Some members created care packages and artistic endeavors, such as painting rocks and cards, for their community to find. This group of students created memories of kindness that will inspire and resonate with others:
Really there are no winners with kindness; the giver and the receiver are both enriched.
NEW Lafayette Public Library Summer Reading Program
The Summer Reading program is free for all ages. Kids and teens can sign up or log in to their previous account to earn awesome prizes, free books, and incentives for every 300 minutes read.

End-of-Year Message from Our Registrar
As we approach the end of the school year I have a couple reminders for our families.
Please Return Any School Devices You Are Not Using
If you have a school-owned Chromebook at home that you are NOT using, please return it (and the charger) to the Main Office or High School Hub. You do not need to return a device that your student is still using. If the device is not working, needs a repair, or is missing the charger, please leave a note on the device so we can send it to IT or get a replacement.
The Puma Spotlight
The Puma Spotlight is a place where we capture and celebrate the success of our students and staff members. Each spring, we are delighted to see an increase in the awards, scholarships, championships, and significant accomplishments of our Pumas. Be sure to visit the Puma Spotlight page on our website to see the good news that has been rolling in this month. At the top of the page, you will find a link to submit your students' achievements to be shared with our community.
There will be an opportunity for elementary distance learners to drive through the front parking circle to waive to their teachers on Wednesday, May 26th from 12:45-1:30 PM. Families can drop off any school items and Chromebooks during this time and also through 3:30 PM on Wednesday or by 12:00 PM on Thursday, May 27th. To summarize:
- Wednesday, May 26th 12:45-1:30 PM front circle to waive to teachers
- Wednesday, May 26th 12:45-3:30 PM or Thursday, May 27th 7:30 AM-12:00 PM front circle to drop off materials

Volunteer Process & Training: We will continue to request fingerprints from anyone who intends to volunteer more than once during the school year. If you had your fingerprints done previously and completed the volunteer form then you do not need to complete any volunteer paperwork this year! Please contact Traci Schoeneweis or 303-453-4682 to verify your volunteer status if you are unsure. If you only intend to volunteer once then you will be required to do the background check (not fingerprints) and the volunteer form each year. Please follow this link to print them: Volunteer Information. Volunteer training is online. Anyone that is new to the school needs to view this before volunteering. If you have previously attended or taken the volunteer training you do not need to do it again. It’s a good idea for returning volunteers to view this as well. Follow this link Volunteer Training to view the information. It can also be found on the volunteer page of the school website.
Your Volunteer Team would love to hear from you. If you have any interest in volunteering for anything at all but do not know where to start please email one of the below people. We would love to meet you.
