Sexting 
  • Sexting is defined as "an act of sending sexually explicit materials through mobile phones." These messages may be text, image file, photo, or video.
  • Sending or receiving a sexually suggestive text or image under the age of 18 is considered child pornography and can result in criminal charges. Criminal charges can be brought against any senders and receivers of these messages who are themselves under 18.
  • Under the School District’s Student Conduct and Discipline Code, students found possessing or distributing sexting images, videos or texts will be immediately disciplined up to and including suspension or expulsion. These same students may also be disciplined by law enforcement for possession and/or distribution of child pornography.
Student/Parent Reunification Process
In the case of a critical situation, the District may enforce a student/parent reunification process. Directions on how you will be notified and what to expect during this process can be found here.

Marijuana Youth Prevention Webinar
The Colorado Department of Health and Environment has put together a Marijuana Youth Prevention Webinar with the objective of establishing a successful youth prevention campaign that leverages trusted adults, reinforces the reasons not to engage in underage marijuana use and deters youth from trying it.


Marijuana Information
The following posters provide helpful information on how to talk to kids about the risks associated with using marijuana. These documents contain strong messages on identifying consequences for underage users and provide great (age appropriate) talking points to consider using with our youth.
