EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM

We are very excited to announce that this year we are able to offer a free extended day program, which will be available to all AAK students. This program will serve as a safe and enriching environment for our students beyond the school day. It will have a planned structure and schedule that includes opportunities for homework help and academic support. We will continue to offer the same robust after-school activities that we always have–drama, dance, Mad Science, music programs, etc.

With the implementation of this program, we hope to make it easier for families to attend our school, and to extend our reach and the unique opportunities we offer to families who otherwise are unable to access our school due to transportation or care obstacles. Please click here for instructions on how to register your AAK Student.

Some highlights of the program:

  • Free to all enrolled students
  • Free breakfast for qualifying families
  • 7:00am-8:10am and 3:20pm-5:30pm
  • Homework help & academic support
  • Structured and safe environment
  • Additional enrichment opportunities

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Caylee Amott at camott@aakelementary.org.


DROP OFF/PICK UP

As we get ready to start the new school year in a new facility, we would like to ask you to spend some time reviewing our attached Drop-Off-Pick-Up-Map-and-Policy before the first day of school.  It will take a few weeks to get used to the flow and work out any kinks, so please plan accordingly.  We will have additional staff members during the first couple of weeks to help facilitate the flow of traffic and students.

Please keep in mind that parents may ONLY park in the furthest north lane on the parking lot that is immediately adjacent to the sidewalk. The other three lanes are reserved for EAN and AAK employees only.  Parental escorts are required to use this sidewalk until they reach the crosswalk by the shed, at which point they can cross to enter the playground.

DO NOT CROSS THE PARKING LOT AT ANY OTHER POINT OR DROP STUDENTS OFF ANYWHERE BUT THE DROP OFF PAD.  It is important that all families follow the drop off and pick up procedures carefully to keep our students and staff safe!

The playground and valet line will be staffed beginning at 8:00am. PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF YOUR CHILD BEFORE THEN. Parents are welcome to remain on the playground between 8:00-8:10am but may not enter with the students.  Parents wishing to volunteer or that have a meeting with a faculty member must enter through the front of the building and check in at the front desk.

Also, please note that all parents, visitors and volunteers in the building will be required to check in at the front desk using a photo ID that will be held at the front desk for the duration you are inside the building, so please keep that in mind when planning your  trip to AAK.

If you have any questions regarding the Drop-Off-Pick-Up-Map-and-Policy, or any other questions, please contact the front desk at 970-226-2800.

Notice of Asbestos-Free Building

Dear Parents, Students, Teachers, and Building Occupants,

In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requiring
schools to inspect and identify any asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM). We are
pleased to announce Academy of Arts & Knowledge is an asbestos-free school.

The law further requires all schools to have an asbestos management plan. Academy of Arts & Knowledge
has an asbestos management plan available for review in the administrative
office at 4512 McMurry Drive.  Rick Bolton is our designated asbestos program coordinator, and all inquiries regarding the asbestos plan and asbestos-related issues should be directed to Rick Bolton at rick.bolton@coloradoearlycolleges.org.
