- Student Enrollment
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont.

On Wednesday, October 16th all students grades 9 - 11 will take standardized assessments.
Juniors will all be taking the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (NMSQT). This assessment is given to select students who will recieve an excellent scholarship which pays for a good part of their post-highschool education. Freshmen and Sophomores will be taking a released version of the PSAT. This provides students with a baseline score for the test they will take in the spring. This will also be the first opportunity for these students to see the test they will take toward the end of the year since our Sophomores took the PSAT 8/9 last year and the Freshmen haven't taken a PSAT yet. We will take another PSAT in February so that students can assess their growth over the course of the year. This also provides exposure to testing conditions in a low-stakes environment. This repeated exposure to the test helps to reduce anxiety that these tests can produce in students. Erie High School students have reported that having these testing opportunities before the high-stakes test in the spring helps them perform better and reduces test anxiety. This topic was addressed recently in Principal Buchler's latest Principal's Update.
Seniors may use the day to work on scholarship applications and application essays for entrance to their next educational opportunity after high school. Any student that chooses to do this from home needs to have a parent call in to the school to excuse their absence.
