September is Suicide Prevention Awareness month, and one way BVSD is helping to support our student’s emotional health is through Sources of Strength.

Monarch High students, staff and families have been living in challenging times. The school serves the most impacted families in the district (200+) affected by the devastating Marshall Fire in December, which came within feet of the school and burned hundreds of homes just across the street. Like many in our BVSD community, the effects from the stress of living through the pandemic and the impacts of the fires have spotlighted the need to focus on student wellness.

This morning the Boulder County Sheriff's Office provided a brief update regarding the ongoing investigation into threats made by an adult community member in Superior.

This is an important differentiation and we apologize for the misstatement.
We have been informed by our partners in law enforcement that they are investigating racially charged threats made by an adult member of the Superior community, which have included general threats towards schools.
A lot is happening in the Boulder Valley School District. As you may have heard, we have been working hard on the All Together for All Students Strategic Plan.
