We continue to closely monitor wildfire activity around our community in partnership with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management. Firefighters have done an outstanding job closing the spread of the Cal-Wood and Lefthand Canyon Fires, and we are incredibly appreciative of their hard work and dedication to protecting our communities. We must remain vigilant and prepared for any changes to the fire’s activity, particularly with high winds forecasted for this afternoon through Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has requested that we extend our closure of in-person learning at school in Lyons through the end of this week.
Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. Click here to learn more.

My name is Amy Abbott and I have been teaching elementary music since 1998, and started working in the St. Vrain Valley School district in 2001. I received my undergraduate degree in music education from the University of Colorado at Boulder and my masters in music education with a Kodály emphasis from Colorado State University. I have Kodály certifications from Portland State University and from Colorado State University.
I am passionate about teaching elementary music and the role the arts play in a child’s education. I love to learn and the students at Red Hawk inspire and teach me new things on a daily basis. In addition to teaching general music, handbells, choir and musical theater at Red Hawk, I also teach level 2 Kodály at Colorado State University in the summer and present sessions on elementary music at workshops and clinics throughout the school year.
When not teaching I love spending time with my husband and children, gardening and exercising. I’m very excited and proud that my children both attend Red Hawk, it’s a wonderful place to work and learn!
