  NEW! A New Look to the Website

The Peak to Peak website has a fresh new look! The homepage looks different, but all of the content is still available. Click here to watch a video tour of the website. You can use the search button in the upper right corner to look for information, or you can always email us at webpub.p2p@bvsd.org if you are having trouble finding information. 


  NEW! Board Meetings Back to In-Person and Public Comments Sign Up
 
Our first regular board meeting of the 2021-2022 school year is next Wednesday, August 11th at 5:00 PM.  This meeting will be in person, in the College Counseling Center which is located upstairs in our north building.  Masks are currently required for this meeting, so we ask all who attend to please wear masks. We hope to be ready to PILOT also having a virtual option to participate, with a Zoom link and using a Revas camera in the room.  If this pilot is an option, the link will be posted with the agenda for the meeting on the website by Monday morning, August 9th.  With our current technology, we are not sure how well the audio will work with the Zoom meeting, but we recognize that continuing to have a virtual option to participate in these board meetings would help to keep our community engaged in all that is happening at school. Meeting agendas are usually posted the Monday before the board meeting and can be found HERE. Thank you for your interest in these meetings!

We will continue to have sign ups in advance only for public comments.  Please click the below link to sign up to make a public comment for the August 11, 2021, 5:00 PM board meeting.  Public comment sign ups close at 4:00 PM on August 11th:

  NEW! Traffic and Parking Plan 2021-2022
 
Please review this document, by clicking the Read More button below, which highlights the traffic flow for daily drop-off and pick-up of students.  For the first few weeks of school, traffic on campus will undoubtedly be heavy and congested, so please be patient and considerate.  Please follow the guidelines to allow for a safer and more pleasant experience.  Also, keep in mind that traffic will improve in a few weeks as carpools get established and people stagger the times that they arrive.  Please note that Puma Drive is a one-way entrance at all times, and Canterbury Drive is a one-way exit at all times.  Also, please DO NOT park on the side streets off Spaulding Street.  These are private drives and we want to honor our neighbors.  Please click the below Read More button to view the entire K-12 traffic plan. Please also review the attached campus map.

  NEW!  Communications Pathway
 
We use the Communications Pathway at our school as an effective, respectful, and efficient pathway to a solution when an issue arises. It is a good starting point method to address any issues. You may periodically receive reminders about the Communication Pathways in our weekly digest. Keep in mind that when you are seeking information or answers to questions, we always welcome dialogue with any member of our community. The Communications Pathway is intended as a problem-solving strategy.

Volunteer (all school levels)

  NEW! Volunteer Information

Once on-site volunteering resumes, 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 our volunteer waiver and release form then you do not need to complete any volunteer paperwork this year!  Please make sure you have a photo volunteer ID card with a barcode on the back.  If you do not have a photo ID card please stop by the Volunteer Station at registration or contact the office staff.  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 waiver and release form each year.  You will be given a one-time volunteer ticket to turn in when you volunteer the one time.  Please follow this link to print them or pick them up at registration:  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 for a refresher on protocols.  Follow this link Volunteer Training to view the information.  It can also be found on the volunteer page of the school website.

Enter Volunteer Hours from Home:  Thank you for helping us track your hours for our records!  See this training on how to enter volunteer hours from home. 

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 either Allie Cross or Rachel Hirt, Volunteer Coordinators.  They would love to meet you!
