  • Regular Schedule: Tuesday, Oct. 31

    District 49 transportation crews and facilities team members were out and about starting at 2 a.m., driving to monitor road conditions by driving the 133 square miles of the district. Buses begin to roll in District 49 at 4:30 a.m. for some of our special routes and rural routes that have longer travel distances to pick up secondary students in rural areas. At that time, El Paso County plows were observed to be out on roads. At some point between 5 - 6 a.m., we began to get reports that roads in some locations, particularly Woodmen Road, northern Marksheffel Road, Meridian Road and Falcon Highway were icing in spots. These roads continued to ice over, even with the air temperature remain steady, and even starting to rise in some areas!

  • Building an Identity: A name. A mascot. School colors.

    In the next few months, we'll break ground on a new elementary school just north of Falcon Middle School. A school is more than the walls, doors and roof.
