Important Information Regarding Cougar Carnival: 
When parking in the neighborhood for this event, please be careful to not block any driveways or to park on any property easements. Also, the entire Kiss and Catch lane in front of the school must remain open (no parking) for a mandatory fire lane. As a reminder, this event is for current Niwot Elementary families only and all students MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
I'm excited to announce Lexi Zabielski as our new attendance clerk. We were very sad to see Rebecca go (she accepted a new job outside of SVVSD) but we are also excited to welcome Lexi. She has most recently been working as a para professional in our ASD classroom. She will continue that role, along with her new attendance clerk position, while we work to hire her replacement in the ASD classroom. Please include Lexi in all of your attendance emails at 
Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Stephanie Erbland, Niwot Elementary's 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year! She was honored at this year’s Tribute to Teachers. Stephanie's dedication, love and passion for her students is inspiring to us all!
A reminder that the last day for AAA is Thursday, May 12.

Dear St. Vrain Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for your continued partnership and support as St. Vrain Valley Schools prepares for the 2022-2023 school year. The Transportation Department is committed to continuously providing the best possible service for our students attending classes within the district. To this end, each year we require that students desiring transportation services complete an application for busing. The application window is currently available and remains open throughout the academic year. Parents and Guardians will be notified when an application has been processed and a seat has been reserved.

While we make every effort to accommodate as many eligible riders as possible, transportation services are provided on a space-available, and first-come, first-served basis.

Please click on the link below for Step-by-Step instructions for the Bus Rider Application which also includes a link to our Bus Rider Application.  Please contact us at 303-702-7530 if you have additional questions.
