From The Director

Student safety is a top priority here at PCK.  We spend a lot of time practicing safety drills and ensuring our facility is well monitored and secure. But, have you ever wondered how we keep student information, personally identifiable information (PII), safe? With the use of more and more technology in schools, this question becomes an important one for many parents and staff members. New technologies — including personal computers, mobile devices, apps, websites, programs, and online services — have become vital to our ability to educate students and identify opportunities for academic interventions. Additionally, they allow teachers to interact with students in a very engaging 21st century manner, with and through devices. One primary example of that is Google Classroom. Many of our teachers utilize this Google tool to seamlessly interface with their students.  

This past spring, the State of Colorado passed HB 16-1423 into law. In a nutshell, the new Student Data Transparency and Security Act, as it’s called, requires all districts and individual charter schools to create and adopt a policy outlining how it will manage and protect students’ personally identifiable information (PII). At the November Board meeting, the PCK Board of Directors approved the PCK Student Data Privacy policy, which is now part of our Parent Handbook in Section 4.02. Additionally, the PCK staff has begun an in-depth training process to help them understand their responsibilities under the new policy, including how to properly vet websites and apps that they may wish to use in the classroom. Many of the approved sites and apps currently in use by the staff can be found on our website under Approved Apps and Websites, located under the Financial Transparency tab.  

The PCK staff will continue to learn and grow in our understanding of this new law, and it’s applications within the school environment, with the express goal of continuing to keep our students — and their PII — as safe as possible. This is just another important level of safety we take seriously at PCK.

Pizza Is Back!

In response to feedback from our recent Hot Lunch survey, we will be offering Papa John’s pizza on two Fridays each month beginning in January. Parents will order via the My Kid’s Lunch website where they currently order all hot lunch. You will have three ordering options: Regular (1 slice of pizza and a drink), Standard (2 slices of pizza and a drink), and X-large (3 slices of pizza and a drink). We know our students are excited to have pizza again!

Are You Done Scooting? 

The Music Department is looking for a used Razor Mod Scooter (any color as it will be painted) for our upcoming production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. If your child has one but is done playing with it and would be willing to donate or sell, please email Mrs. Myers at Kmyers@ckcs.net.


It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas… At Our Front Desk

If you are sending out a photo Christmas card of your family this year, we would love one to display at our front desk. We enjoy seeing the smiling faces of our wonderful families!
