60+ Veterans Day Free Meals, Deals and Discounts in Denver

in Community

Here’s to our real-life superheroes! There are many ways to thank veterans for their courage and sacrifice, but celebrating their heroism with free food is a good start. It’s a small way to show appreciation and respect for their service and sacrifice. (With a little planning, bargain-hunting vets just might take advantage of several offers for even bigger savings.)

There are many deals, discounts and freebies for military members (active and veterans), as part of Veterans Day on Monday, November 11 in Denver & Boulder. The round-up will be updated, as more deals are confirmed. Check back often.

Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, LPS will implement its immunization policy and follow state law as written.

in Community/Education

From the Littleton Public Schools Website-

Board Policy, JLCB

“The Board directs the superintendent or designee(s) to annually provide parents/guardians of each student enrolled in the district a copy of the standardized immunization document developed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The standardized immunization document includes a list of required and recommended immunizations and the age at which each immunization should be given.

No student is permitted to attend or continue to attend any school in this district without meeting the legal requirements of immunization against disease unless the student has a valid exemption for medical or non-medical (religious or personal) reasons.

Students who do not submit an up-to-date certificate of immunization or a written letter confirming the date of appointment for required immunization(s) or a valid exemption will be suspended and/or expelled from school according to this policy’s accompanying regulation.

All information distributed to parents/guardians by the district will inform them of their rights to seek an exemption from immunization requirements.

Compliance with the immunization expectations is required for enrollment and attendance in LPS schools, unless the student has a valid exemption for medical or non-medical reasons.”

Read JeffCo Superintendent Dr. Jason Glass’ letter on respect and civility

in Community/Education

The letter begins…

Dear Jeffco Community,

October snowstorms are unusual, even in Colorado, but I do hope that you take a moment to enjoy and appreciate the majesty and beauty that the coming of winter brings.

As you know, Jeffco Public Schools enacted a two-hour delay schedule today, a relatively new procedure for us, as the district did not previously have this as an option. There will be things we will learn from this experience today and we will evaluate how to make our two-hour delayed start more efficient when we need it in the future. Based on the reports I have received from numerous schools and my own experiences this morning, the two-hour delay was successful and ultimately the right decision for our community. I appreciate our staff, parents, and students for your part in making that happen.
