Annual Bond Update and School Safety Town Hall Meetings

Dear St. Vrain Valley Families:

Thank you for your continued partnership as we work together to advance the well-being and academic success of our students. We are very fortunate to have such committed families, outstanding students and dedicated teachers and staff that make our community a highly engaging and supportive environment for our children to thrive.

School Culture Drives Student Safety

It is no secret that St. Vrain Valley Schools values cutting-edge technology, high-quality teachers and academic excellence within its schools. These essentials are considered ‘priority one’ when speaking to any district official or community stakeholder. Another area of equal importance is student safety and providing secure learning environments for our community’s greatest asset – students.
 

Student safety is a top priority across St. Vrain Valley Schools. This is the core of our work and we are committed to a consistently proactive approach to fulfilling our highest responsibility – ensuring the well-being, safety and growth of our children. We have implemented many programs and protocols to ensure the highest levels of school security, many of which are being replicated across the state and nationally. Along the way, we have heavily involved our community in shaping the safety and quality of our learning environments. In the past year alone, we have featured stories in district publications, developed news articles, earned media coverage, delivered school presentations and hosted 12 public meetings across every community in our district – all emphasizing our work to increase school safety and support student advancement.

As we continue our drive for increased community engagement and public participation across our schools, we invite you to join us for one of this year’s annually scheduled Bond Update and School Safety Town Hall Meetings. These public events are designed to share current security features and protocols; discuss how school officials, law enforcement, parents and students can work together to further strengthen school safety; and show the progress of construction projects and other 2016 bond program plans.
