Dear Sand Creek High School and Springs Ranch Elementary School Families,
On Thursday, at approximately 8:45 a.m., our law enforcement partners at the CSPD told SCHS administrators as well as D49 safety and security about a suspicious incident in a nearby neighborhood. Following the guidance from CSPD, and out of an abundance of caution, administrators initiated a lockout status at SCHS and SRES as police carried out a thorough scour of the area around our campuses.
Administrators lifted the lockout when CSPD gave the all clear, at 9:07 approximately, 20 minutes after the initial alert. Please see Leadership Updates for more information.
Join us for our next Parent Academy: Mindfulness on 11/21 at 5:30pm at Remington Elementary. Hosted by the administrators and staff of Remington Elementary, this night will give you a better understanding of Mindfulness and implementing Restorative Practices with your own child.

Congratulations Springs Ranch families on completing the 2018-2019 school year! School is out for the summer and we hope that you have a restful and rejuvenating break. We also hope that our learners will have a chance to keep learning over the summer. It is a good idea to set some time aside each day for your child to read. Each class had a visit from our local library (PPLD) to talk about the summer programs they have going on. As you may be travelling to various places have your students write about their travels in a journal. Play games, read books, and spend time together. You can always check out our Library Resource Page for great online resources as well.
Look for information via email for the 2019-2020 school year. Our SRES Open House to meet your teacher will be on Tuesday, July 30th from 3-5 p.m. and the first day of school for all students is Thursday, August 1st.
As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to provide your child with a great elementary experience. Enjoy you summer and we look forward to seeing you again at the start of next school year.
