Remote Learning Updates: 8/4/2020

Hello Arapahoe Ridge Families, 

We hope that this communication finds you healthy and well! As you know the Board of Education has approved a remote learning start to the school year.  We continue to partner with district leadership to finalize the specific details regarding the 2020-2021 school year. As final decisions are made we will communicate with you.

We understand how important it is for you to have these details and we are committed to making this a successful year. Our staff is dedicated and you will be able to count on us to continue providing a robust academic program. We have highly educated teachers with a wealth of experience and love for our students. 

What if I Have Questions? Adams12 has created a form for families, students, staff and community members to submit questions for the 2020-2021 school year. Feedback collected in this form will better inform planning and communication as we seek to best serve our families. To submit a question, visit
