We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more.

Fall River is a collaborative STEM community inspiring curiosity, empathy, and innovation by integrating authentic problem-solving to mentor the leaders of tomorrow.
In 2009, the staff and students of Fall River Elementary created our school motto. First, staff members brainstormed words they thought were powerful and inspiring for those who work with children and in the field of education. Next, staff members worked in teams to create 5-7 word mottos using at least two of the words from the "inspirational" pool. Finally, the mottos were shared with the entire student body, who voted to choose the one they felt both inspired them and described best what is special about Fall River Elementary. These five words are our touchstone to remind us that you have to be brave, work hard, and never give up to achieve your very best! Fall River Elementary...The Courage to be Outstanding!
We are excited to have been awarded, as part of the Skyline High school feeder system, a Race to the Top grant worth $16 Million over four years. Students at all grade levels experience, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, integrated into their day.
Students also learn 21st Century Skills, such as collaboration, communication, and creativity. Students engage in hands-on inquiry based learning that encourages problem-solving and critical thinking.
