As you have heard, due to significant anticipated teacher absences, DPS is canceling all classes for Friday, April 27. Polaris will not hold classes or after school enrichments on Friday. Discovery Link will be held at various sites throughout the district for the full day. Families who use Discovery Link should have received an email letting them know what sites are available. If you have not received this, please call the school office and we will assist you.
DPS has been working in partnership to press our state government to restore education funding to our schools. The statewide teachers association, the Colorado Education Association (CEA), is planning a statewide rally of educators on Friday, April 27, to advocate for greater state funding and expects that many of our teachers will participate. If you would like to join teachers there, you are welcome!
School may be closed, but the show must go on! Because our fifth grade students have worked so hard on their Shakespeare play, we will attend the Shakespeare Festival, but will ask parents to bring their students and stay for the half-hour play and then take their students with them. A communication
will be sent to the parents of fifth grade students regarding the logistics. If you have concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to call me, the fifth grade teachers or Corrilee Kielmeyer.
Polaris Parents, thank you for your support. It is humbling to be a part of this amazing community!
Anne Sterrett, Principal
Polaris Elementary School
