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.

After graduating with a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2010, I moved into the mountains of Colorado to immerse myself in outdoor education–literally teaching out of a backpack. During those formative years, I witnessed the power of learning when students are directly immersed in the natural world. My desire for education ignited like a wildfire.
My time in outdoor education allowed for many life-altering experiences such as living out of a hammock during a summer, creating primitive skills camps, and truly experiencing the daily rhythms of our planet. I later decided to further my path in education by returning to CU, where I received my Post-BA Teaching License in 2016. Additionally, I have participated in the Partner’s In Education program (PIE). I received my Master’s in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction in 2019.
SVVSD is definitely the place to be for me. I look forward to growing as an educator with the creative students, brilliant staff, and the devoted community of Red Hawk. Outside of school, my time is spent exploring colorful Colorado beside my beautiful partner Robyn along with our canine companions.
