Dear Weld Re-8 Community,
We have been fortunate with unseasonably warm weather for the past two months, however, there are bound to be those days in our calendar that will provide safety and travel complications for students and staff. I will continue to make every effort to determine a Late Start or Cancellation of Schools prior to 10 P.M. the day before the affected school day of student attendance. We have Board of Education policy that states the decision will be made by 5:30 A.M. of the school day affected. While we utilize many weather predictions, there are many times the forecast is inaccurate. I appreciated your patience during these times of year.
As a District, we continue to emphasize Best-First Instruction and Relationships. I remain steadfast in my belief of the paramount importance that relationships provide for our students. I know that a trusted adult is a needed resource for each of our students in every building. I am committed to provide a safe and secure learning environment for your student(s) every day. I would encourage each of you to have conversations with your student to insure they feel safe in school and have a trusted adult in their building with whom they can talk to.
We are quickly approaching Parent-Teacher Conferences at Butler and Twombly and Little Trappers. Those dates are on Wednesday, February 12 and Thursday, February 13, 2020. Our teachers are available on both days from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Please plan on attending one of those two nights to meet with your teacher for feedback on your students’ academic progress. On Friday, February 14, 2020, there will be no school at those three buildings while Fort Lupton Middle School, Homyak PK-8 and Fort Lupton High School will be in regular daily schedule with Parent-Teacher Conferences on March 18 and 19, 2020
Your child has recently completed the second benchmark assessment series which measures academic progress over the course for this school year. This provides key information for your student’s teacher to adjust instruction to best meet the individual needs. The goal of Best-First Instruction is to ensure EACH student has the opportunity to learn at their individual best.
I am appreciative of the Weld Re-8 community and am honored to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.
A Proud Weld Re-8 Employee
