Introduction

Welcome to the 2024-2025 school year! 鶹ýPorn is committed to providing academic and extracurricular activities for students in a safe environment with minimal disruptions and an atmosphere of mutual respect. This handbook provides information to students and their families of their rights and obligations regarding various educational opportunities offered by the district, the rules governing confidentiality and inspection of education records, and the districts policies and procedures relating to safety, discipline, and student conduct.

School Safety

School safety is a community effort and 鶹ýPorn relies on students, staff, parents and community members working with us to help keep our campuses safe places for learning. Our mantra is: If you see something, say something. That goes for anyone in our buildings or on our campuses including parents, volunteers and business leaders. We encourage everyone to report suspicious activity or safety information to school administrators for follow up. The district has three ways to report the things that negatively impact the experiences of students, staff and community members in our district. Safety concerns can be reported through Safe2Tell, the statewide Colorado program which provides the opportunity for anyone to provide anonymous tips about safety at schools. Information can be provided to Safe2Tell via its website, App or hotline at (877) 542-SAFE (7233).

All information is anonymous and passed onto the appropriate personnel in the district for follow-up. Sexual harassment can be reported through the districts Title IX platform. Negative experiences, such as discrimination, can be reported through the districts Incident Reporting platform. Keeping our schools safe places for learning requires that we work together as a community to speak up when something doesnt seem right and actively participate in reporting suspicious behaviors, activities or rumors in a proactive manner.
