Parent Communication & Policies


Thursday Folders

Lots of important information goes home every week!

Every Thursday, students bring home their Thursday Folder. These folders will contain valuable information from their classroom teachers, specials teachers, and the office. Please make sure you review your child’s folder with him/her to help you stay up to date!

Parent/Guardian Handbook

Our Parent/Student Handbook serves as an important source of information for each of you. We have included helpful information to ensure a successful school year. Please read through the handbook and keep in mind that more detailed policies and procedures are available at your request. We sincerely hope you all have an enjoyable and successful year. If you have any questions or we can further support you, please contact us at 720-424-8300

Parent & Student Handbook Reminders: Birthday Treats

Due to the increased amount of allergy issues, and the concern for lack of instructional time, we do not celebrate birthdays with parties and food during the school day. Cowell will provide a special birthday pencil to each of our students during the month of their birthday. Please contact your child’s teacher, if you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with his/her class, at the end of the day, with a small, non-food treat.

Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to visit the front office. Potential volunteers will fill out paperwork and submit to a criminal background check.
