    Testing

    Our state assessment window is right around the corner. Spring assessments will take place in all schools in Colorado in March and April. Our 3-6 grade student participate in PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) and CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success) state testing. These assessments are given online and will be administered under standardized conditions to ensure accurate results.

    Our school will be testing on the following days:

    Tuesday-Friday, March 14-17 (3-6 grade English and Math assessments)
    Monday-Wednesday, March 20-22 (3-6 grade English and Math assessments)
    Tuesday-Thursday, April 11-13 (4th grade Social Studies and 5th grade Science only)

    Each fall we review our state assessment results as part of our school and student performance to set goals. It is important that students arrive to school on time each day and have a good night’s rest. We also ask that you avoid scheduling doctor appointments or other events during our testing dates. Thank you for supporting your student and Bishop as we prepare for our assessment days. If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly.

     

    Thank you,

    Shanna Martin

As of February 8, there have been 27 cases of mumps in Colorado, and this number is expected to grow. In order to minimize the spread of mumps in schools, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has asked us to provide you with this information about mumps.

  • Important Information about Immunizations

    Immunizations are an important part of our children's and the community's health. Colorado law requires students attending a public, private or parochial school to be immunized against certain vaccine preventable diseases.

    Specifically, incoming kindergarten students and sixth graders are due for vaccines before coming back to school for the 2016-2017 school year.

    Please read this letter for kindergarten families (en español) and this letter for sixth grade families (en español).

    Health Updates: Information about flu season and Enterovirus D68 

     

     
    Influenza:

    Flu season is just around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health insurance companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine so families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care provider to receive a vaccine at no cost.  Many pharmacies will bill your insurance and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local pharmacy). If you are uninsured, or your insurance won’t cover vaccines, or you have Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health Department at 303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can also visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/ to find flu shot clinics near you.

    Enterovirus D68

    The following link takes you to the CDC website and contains general information and recommendations about Enterovirus D68:

    http://www.cdc.gov/non-polio-enterovirus/about/EV-D68.html

    How can I protect myself?

    • Avoid close contact with sick people
    • Wash your hands often with soap & water
    • Cover Your coughs and sneezes
    • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces
    • Stay home when you’re sick
