Dear Boulder High School Community,
I want to take this opportunity to thank our staff and the class of 2024 for a successful return to school this week. Although we have some things we need to adjust, overall the week went well. I am really excited about this freshman class. If this week was any indication of what type of students they are, it will be an exciting four years. Starting on Tuesday, October 27, we will be welcoming our 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students back to the building. As we continue our goal of keeping our students and staff safe and our schools open for in-person learning, I want to remind you that all health and safety protocols must be followed. Please review these protocols before next Tuesday and reach out to an administrator with any questions. I have highlighted a few protocols below; however, you can find the full list on our district and school website on the Phase 2+ parent resource page.
A student WILL NOT be permitted to enter the building if a parent or guardian has not completed the Daily Health Screener in Infinite Campus. Parents/guardians MUST complete the Daily Health Screener the day of entry to the building. The screener cannot be completed a day prior. Additionally, only the parent/guardian can complete the Screener; students are not permitted to complete the screener on their own. Boulder High School cannot assist parents with completing the screener on site. Please refer to the following letter from our school nurse, Eileen Chacon, for further information about health guidelines and a link to the screener: BHS School Nurse Letter to the Community.
You can also link to the Student Daily Health Screener from the quick links menu on the Boulder High website. In addition, for parents/guardians who would like them, magnets and business cards with the Health Screener QR code are available. View this document for instructions on how to make a shortcut/tile on your phone.
Students MUST wear a face covering/protective mask while in the building and on school grounds at all times unless they are eating in a designated area or outside socially distanced. Students who do not comply with this district and county mandate cannot remain in their classes for the day, and parents/guardians will immediately be notified to come and pick up their child. Refer to this document for appropriate and acceptable face coverings/masks.
Building Entrance and Exit
Students will enter the building according to their last name. Look at the building entry points below and find your ALPHA-ASSIGNED entry.

Attendance and Contact Tracing
If your student is not attending their in-person learning day but intends to join the virtual class, please call (720) 561-5300 and leave a message for attendance stating that they will be joining virtually. This will support accurate contact tracing of student cohorts.
For all other attendance calls (illness, family emergency, family trip), please follow the Virtual Attendance Policy found on our website.
Finally, please be sure you are checking the Infinite Campus portal for your in-person learning day. We look forward to seeing you all next week. Have a great day, and be safe.
