Equity, Diversity, & Belonging Meeting Tuesday, Sept 13

Hi all! Please join the EDB Committee for our monthly meeting on September 13 5:30-7.
The Equity, Diversity, and Belonging Committee meet once a month. You do not have to commit to the entire year and are more than welcome to join and check it out.
The Horizons Equity, Diversity and Belonging Committee promotes diversity and belonging throughout our school. We recognize, support, and explore the benefits diversity brings to the learning environment. We emphasize supporting our educators and community to ensure that all students and families feel valued and that they belong.
EDB meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 5:30 via Zoom.

Help Other Horizons Families By Signing Up for Carpooling

We have several families at Horizons that are in need of carpool connections to get their students here and back everyday. If you feel like you could help in this way (or need help!), please sign up for BVSD’s WayToGo program. See below for more information.

Dear Parents or Guardians,

Are you interested in having your children carpool, walk, bike, or ride the RTD bus to and from school with students from other families in your school? Now is the time to join your school’s secure SchoolPool network.

WayToGo – SchoolPool, which is a program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), is once again providing BVSD with its own Transportation Network. Each of BVSD’s 53 sites has its own secure network. It’s free and there is no obligation to participate. Instructions on how to register for SchoolPool are listed below.

Click on your school’s link to get started: Horizons

Using this secure website, you can register to find and contact interested families from your school. You can register with your home address or with a nearby intersection. WayToGo’s primary goal is to reduce traffic congestion and pollution, so rest assured your information will only be shared with other families at your school who have signed up. It will not be shared with third parties.
