  • Special Olympics Brings Social and Physical Support for Students in Extended School Year Program

    Representatives from the southeast Colorado Special Olympics regional office taught bocce ball to students enrolled in District 49's extended school year program June 7 at Sand Creek High School. The extended year program serves qualifying students with special needs for four weeks at the beginning of the traditional summer break. The program focuses on retaining information and skills that students learn during the traditional school year. The extra learning helps increase retention and ensures a strong start to the school year. "When we are in the classroom we are working hard on reading and math," said Bridgette Martin, ESY coordinator for secondary students. "A lot of the students have social goals too and this is a practical and fun way to work on those goals."

  • School Meal Accounts Must Have Funds in May

    The District 49 school nutrition teams enjoy the opportunity to nourish the students we serve by providing healthy and nutritious meals. As a self-funded program, our team needs help from parents to wrap up the school year and close the books.

    Starting May 1, student accounts must be funded to purchase meals. No students will be allowed to borrow lunch money. Each school year must end with all accounts current.

    District 49’s Nutrition Services department is regulated by the federal government through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. Part of that regulation requires nutrition services to operate as a self-funded district enterprise (not-for-profit business). This means our cafeterias do not receive financial support from local taxes to provide meals.

    To check your student's account balance, contact the school lunch manager or visit payschools.com.  Skyview also accepts cash or checks payable to Falcon Food Service.

    Meal accounts remain active throughout a student’s academic career in District 49. At the end of each school year, any money remaining or owed on an account is rolled over to next year.
