Larkspur News!

September 14, 2018



We would like to make you aware of a very important date coming up. On September 25, 2018, the Colorado Department of Education will take a snapshot of our Pupil Count. The Pupil Count is what determines the amount of funding that our school receives from the state, essentially the funding to run our school.  It is very important to our school, and our students, to have all of our students in attendance on this important day. We know illness or other unforeseen circumstances arise, but we ask that outside of those circumstances that your student please be in attendance on September 25, 2018. Thank you so much for your assistance in helping our school receive the maximum amount of funding.

Attendance News:

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.

When students are absent for fewer days, their grades and reading skills often improve even among those students who are struggling in school. Students who attend school regularly also feel more connected to their community, develop important social skills and friendships, and are significantly more likely to graduate from high school, setting them up for a strong future.


But when kids are absent for an average of just two days of school per month even when the absences are excused it can have a negative impact. These absences can affect kids as early as Kindergarten.


For example, young elementary school students who miss an average of just two school days per month often have difficulty keeping up with their peers academically and tend to fall behind in reading. But when students are able to read on grade level by the end of third grade, which is when kids transition from learning to read to reading to learn, they are three to four times more likely to graduate high school and attend college, post-graduate, or professional development classes than their peers who struggle with reading. Please make sure your kids attend school on a regular basis. This is their foundation and we want to ensure they have a solid foundation as we send them off to middle school.


Attention Car Pool Safety!

Mr. Forbes has noticed a large amount of parents on their cell phones while in carline. Please put that cell phone down until you are off school grounds. Thank you for ensuring we keep all students and staff safe! 



*Please remember there is no school Friday, September 21st for staff development. Champions will be open if you are in need of childcare. 


Thank you to all our volunteers for making field day a huge success. It sure was a hot day, but I enjoyed watching all our students enjoying all the games and festivities! 


Please have a wonderful weekend and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any comments, questions or concerns. 


Jen Oldham, Principal
