Please see the message below for some important information and upcoming events for the start of the school year. I hope you all have had a fun, safe and relaxing summer. The Woodglen office is now open 7:30-3:00PM each day. Please take the time to read the whole letter.
The Online Check-in (OLC) is open through August 14. During the OLC window, parents can call 720-972-2003 to request assistance with the OLC process. Starting at 8:00 am on July 28, if the Service Desk is not able to answer a call made to 720-972-2003, the voicemail message will encourage parents to call their student’s school for OLC assistance. At this time please call Woodglen Elementary at 720-972-5700.
The district’s online check-in process is necessary each summer for all families to verify or update primary household information, confirm their child(ren) will return to a district school this fall and sign important districtwide documents from the comfort of their home.

Safety Tips to Review with your Children
Plans to and from school
Each child should be familiar with how they will be getting to and from school each day. Is someone picking them up? Are they supposed to meet you at a special location? Will they be attending the B.A.S.E. Program? Is there a special plan for the first day of school that is different from what will become the normal routine?
Taking time to talk with your child and help them be familiar with the plans makes a big difference on that first day.
It is always helpful to remind your child that they need to have your permission and arrangements confirmed before walking home with a friend after school.
Students are expected to go directly to and from school. They are to respect the rights and property of all people in the neighborhood.
Not taking rides from others (unplanned)
It is important to remind your children not to take rides from anyone else unless previous arrangements have been made and that you, as their parents/guardians, know about the plans.
Find a staff member if assistance is needed
If your child becomes unsure about the plans for after school or if their ride hasn’t shown up, encourage them to find a staff member or to go to the office for assistance. We will help them get in touch with you.
Use of crosswalks
It is important that students stop and look both ways and ensure that all vehicles have stopped before using the crosswalks to get to school.
We often see students running across the street, crossing in the middle of a street, etc. These types of practices are unsafe and put students at risk. Please help us keep everyone safe!
Parking and Hug and Go Lanes
Hug and Go lanes are located on the east side of the school by the yellow/green cones. Please do not park and exit your car in this area. We need to keep everyone moving to keep traffic from backing up.
Drop off and pick up of students is along the curb only, so they don’t have to cross traffic other than at the crosswalk.
Avoid picking up or dropping off students in the parking lots.
Avoid parking within 15 feet of school crosswalks.
Pets On School Property
In an effort to keep our school feeling safe for all students and families and in accordance with District Policy, only service animals are permitted on school property. We ask that all other pets remain off school grounds during school hours. We appreciate your cooperation with this
Please contact the office at 720-972-5700 if you have any questions.
