 Important Information

From the Nurse!

​​Looking ahead to next year:  New medication orders will be needed for the new school year (at the start of the new school year for all oral medications, inhalers, epi-pens, etc.). ​

Healthy Sleeping Habits:  The start of a new school year means moving from a summer to a school-year routine.  Making this transition gradually, beginning a week or two before the start of school, can be beneficial.  This transition is also a good time to remember how important getting enough sleep is for students to do their best in school.  To help with this, we are providing you with some key recommendations for healthy sleep habits. Thank you for your partnership in your child's education.

Important Traffic Notice

Hello HMS parents, friends, & staff.

At Horizon Middle School we strive to be good neighbors in the community and hope we are leading that example.  Along these lines, you may not know that HMS has a crossing guard at the corner of Tower and Hampden, as well as at the light just northeast of the school, for the entrance to our lower parking lot.  Over the last four weeks, we have seen an increase in safety concerns in these areas.  There have been several instances in which drivers have stopped on the crosswalk, which poses a danger for our pedestrians and the crossing guard as they cross the street. 

As it can be hard to see if you are over the crosswalk, your best bet is to stop well behind it.  Please understand that if your car is impeding the crosswalk in any way, it forces pedestrians to walk closer to oncoming traffic, which can be dangerous. Thank you for your understanding and support to keep our students safe!

Finally, if you are accessing our lower lot near the fire station we ask that you be mindful and not block their entryway. Our first responders are asking for your help and support in keeping these lanes clear of traffic at all times. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility with this very important issue.

 District Announcements

  • Parent Forms available July 1

    Cherry Creek Schools requires families to update their household and student information each year including emergency contacts, medical, and policy acceptance forms, along with school specific forms. These forms will be made available online beginning July 1, 2017 and are part of the annual check-in processes for the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Parents who submitted information last year can save time by accessing the system to review, update, and save information previously stored. Parents can always return to the online forms to update information that may change during the school year (i.e. phone numbers, emergency contacts, medical updates, etc.).

    In July you will receive an email informing you that the Parent Online Forms system is ready for 2017-2018 annual check-in. Some important notes about accessing the system:

    1) You can register and/or login to the system at http://my.cherrycreekschools.org.

    2) Parents who already registered to use the system in prior years will use the same username and password. Parents can change/reset their password at http://my.cherrycreekschools.org.

    3) New parents to CCSD will need to create a username and password to use the system by registering at the Internet address above. To register, parents should have the following information available: Parent First and Last Name, Birthdate and Student ID for at least one of their children, and a Personal Email Address. Spelling for all personal information must match District Admissions. Student ID Numbers are available on school report cards, as well as original Admissions documents.

    4) Students and families not yet admitted to Cherry Creek Schools will not have access to the system.

    Cherry Creek Schools requires each family to update their student information. Be aware that updating student forms electronically is only part of the check-in process. Each school has additional steps for each student to complete. Check with your school for more information.

  • Dates, start times for 2017-2018 school year

    Be sure to double-check your children’s school calendars for the 2017-18 school year. In March, the Board of Education approved new start times to better align with adolescent sleep patterns. Elementary schools will start at 8 a.m. and release at 2:45 p.m. High schools will start at 8:20 a.m. and release at 3:30 p.m., with the exception of Endeavor Academy, which starts at 8:40 a.m. and releases at 3:05 p.m. Middle schools will start at 8:50 a.m. and release at 3:45 p.m.  As part of that process, the first day of school was also adjusted and winter break falls differently than in years past.
    Monday, July 10 – First day of school, Four-Track Calendar
    Monday, August 7 – First day of school, Transitional Calendar
    Monday, August 14 – First day of school, Traditional Calendar
