Virtual Parent Meeting
We will have a virtual parent presentation on Wednesday, September 2nd from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m. To view the presentation click here.

Student Welcome Back and Code of Conduct Overview
In accordance with Jeffco Policies, students need to review the Jeffco Public Schools Code of Conduct. This handbook details Jeffco’s policies, procedures, and student expectations. Please take particular note that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jeffco Public Schools developed specific health and hygiene protocols to enable us to maximize in-person learning while ensuring the safety of our students, staff, and community.
If a student attends in-person learning, the failure of a student to comply with these expectations and the willful defiance to follow direction from school staff will be considered grounds for student discipline up to and including expulsion.
As a reminder, face masks are required for all staff and students. Students may not wear neck gaiters/buffs, bandanas, knitted mask, or masks with breathing valves. If your child is not wearing an approved mask, we will provide them with one. At all times that students are on campus, they should make every effort to keep at least a safe six-foot distance between themselves and others. In addition, social gatherings will not be allowed, which includes hanging out in the Commons, Gym, Library and Cafeteria.

First Day of School Message from Principal Paxton

How did it go? As we all experienced this morning, there will be a few technology hiccups as we start the school year. Thankfully the Conifer staff and our students were able to work through the technical glitches and move forward. That’s what Lobos do!
As we settle in for the next two weeks of remote learning, it is vitally important that ALL students logged into their classes every school day at the beginning of each class. That means every day, whether it’s Green, Silver or Conifer day. In addition, please make sure your child is prepared to learn by dressing appropriately for school and sitting in a quiet place (without background noises and distractions). Please see our CHS Online Expectations for online learning.
If your child is experiencing internet issues at home, encourage them to call the phone number associated with the Google Meet or Zoom class session. If you don’t see a number, please email their teacher.

Thanks!!! Principal Paxton
