- Community Schools
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.

I grew up in a large Wisconsin family. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities with a degree in Consumer and Family Science Education (it was still called Home Economics Education then). After graduating, I moved to Austin, Texas and started my first teaching job in a Juvenile Detention Center. 5 years later, I moved to Colorado. Jobs in Consumer and Family Science were few and far between, so I subbed. I soon realized that I was drawn to working with children with Special Needs. I went back to school at the University of Northern Colorado and received my degree in Special Education. I have been a Special Education teacher for many years. I have done all my work as a Special Education teacher in the St. Vrain Valley School District. But a teacher never stops learning, so I went back to school at the University of Colorado-Boulder and finished my degree as a Reading Teacher.
