The Boulder Valley School District celebrated three teams with new awards during the Impact on Education Awards ceremony on May 24.
It has been another challenging year for our school district and community, as we continue to navigate the impacts of the pandemic, the mass shooting and now the Marshall Fire. I’m incredibly proud of the way that we have come together following so much tragedy over the past few years. As a school district, we will continue to wrap our arms around impacted kids and families.
A year after the tragedy at the King Soopers in Table Mesa, we are once again mourning today. This time, it is for at least 19 students and two teachers who needlessly lost their lives in a mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas, just two days before the end of their school year.
This summer 54 athletes will represent Team Colorado at the 2022 USA Special Olympic Games in Orlando, Florida. Two of the distinguished athletes selected to compete include Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) student Michelle Zhang (tennis) and BVSD alum Leigh Shafer (swimming).
Boulder Valley School District’s Grad Plus program was built on the idea that every student should graduate from high school in BVSD with more than a diploma.
The health precautions we have in place in BVSD are the same recommendations that the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and our local public health agencies continue to stress: stay home when sick, test for COVID if symptomatic, vaccinate and isolate if you’ve tested positive.
It only takes a tiny amount of fentanyl to be fatal and one of the most troublesome aspects of this situation is that it is believed that fentanyl is now being mixed into every type of drug being sold illicitly and you cannot see it, smell it or taste it – so many of those who overdose, have no idea that they are taking fentanyl.
