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.

The "I-Statement" is a tool we can all use to respectfully stand up for ourselves! I think of this as a basic format that provides your "best-bet" results for difficult conversations. "I-Statements" are much less threatening than "You-Messages", and therefore can help to defuse conflict, while still allowing you to saying what you need to. This takes practice, but can help your child and family communicate significantly better. Many parents choose to post this in a visible location in their homes (refrigerator for example), and model this calmly when they need to discuss something with family members.
“I feel ________________
(name the feeling)
“and I would like ______”
(Say what you would like to happen instead)
