Back to School

    Five District 49 families have chalked up an extra $200 for back-to-school shopping. Congratulations to the following parents who go to the head of the class with funds for the new school year ahead!

    Angela Bastille - Child attends Springs Ranch Elementary School.

    April Kite - Kids attend Woodmen Hills Elementary School.

    Kellie McSparren - Child attends Meridian Ranch Elementary School.

    Karrie Phifer - Kids attend Stetson Elementary School & Vista Ridge High School.

    Bridgette Schuls -Child attends Sand Creek High School.

    The winners were randomly selected this week from nearly 2,000 entries. Each will receive a $100 gift card to buy school supplies and a $100 gift card for back-to-school clothes.

    Some of our winners shared they haven't purchased their needed school supplies yet, so the timing is perfect. Others plan to buy extra supplies and donate them to District 49 classrooms for kids in need.

    It's time to start getting ready to head back to school.  In our continuing efforts to improve the service we provide to students and families, we've created this central hub to access the back to school page for each of the coordinated schools. You'll notice they are organized by zone (know your zone?), with the secondary schools on the top of the elementary schools.  Back to school pages contain downloadable school supply lists, information about some fees that have changed, important back to school dates, letters from principals, etc.
    ical example While sixth and ninth grade students have orientation on Wednesday, Aug. 1, the official first day of school in District 49 is Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018.  Get a detailed district calendar to help with planning for the upcoming year.  Check your specific school calendar, located on the school's homepage for school specific information.  Better yet, hit the green ical button at the top of your school's calendar to add it to your online or smartphone calendar.
    Some student services are provided at the district level. Here's a list of links to commonly used district services:
