District Updates

  • Updated Schedule for April 27th

    We thank our colleagues and stakeholders who have continued to engage about the teacher action day planned for this Friday at the state capitol in Denver. The number of planned absences has grown past the point where District 49 can ensure safe operations and a high-quality learning experience at all schools and sites. Accordingly, District 49 is converting Friday, April 27 from a student contact day to a professional work day. That means students will not attend school this Friday, April 27.
