Message from the Director, Suzanne Acheson

Dear Colorado SKIES Academy Community,

We have been working a lot with various vendors and the Cherry Creek School District, and everything is coming together for an amazing start to our inaugural school year at CSA. Parents, please watch for a survey to provide us with valuable information to determine the type of lunch program that will best fit the needs of our learners. Your input is vital! Also, our Parent Accountability Committee will be providing input on dates for a Meet & Greet with facilitators (and our modulars will be in place), along with a more formal Q&A session with your CSA administrative team.

Over the next week or so, I will be solidifying the Emergency Operations Plan for CSA while in the modulars. I will be coordinating with Exploration of Flight, the airport authorities, Araphoe Sheriff’s Department, and local fire protection to complete the plan. Once complete, CSA will provide updated communication on our website about our emergency operations.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July with friends and family! I can’t wait to meet all of our learners and their families!

Soaring with Colorado SKIES,
Suzanne E. Acheson, M. Ed.
School Director
