  • 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."

  • Dear Skyview Middle School Families,


    District 49 safety personnel received a Safe 2 Tell report on Friday, Jan. 19 about a bomb threat at Skyview Middle School.


    Both school leaders and the Colorado Springs Police Department received the Safe 2 Tell report at 11:36 p.m. Based on information in the report, officers from the CSPD interviewed a student and that student's family at their residence.


    Additionally, CSPD and district security officers and school leaders conducted a search at the school using an explosion detection K-9 unit to sweep the school and grounds.


    There is no evidence or indication of any explosives at the school, and school leaders in collaboration with the CSPD have determined the school is clear of any unsafe condition. School will continue as scheduled on Monday, Jan. 22.


    Student and faculty safety is the highest priority in District 49, so we treat every report of a possible threat seriously. The district's safety personnel coordinate with local law enforcement to investigate any reports of possible threat to schools.


    David Nancarrow

    Director of Communications
