End of the Year Information

 

Niwot High School
End of Year Details & Dates

Dear Niwot High Students and Parents,

I hope that this writing finds you doing well and healthy. It is with mixed emotions that I write to you.  On the one hand, my heart is heavy for those dealing with their own health issues or that of a family member or friend, for the many who have been negatively impacted financially by the shutdown, and for those students (especially seniors) who are missing out on time with friends, performances, concerts, prom, athletic contests, and the normalcy of life for which we all yearn.

However, I am also very hopeful for the future.  Like the flowers that blossom after a long winter, I know that we are going to emerge from this time with a renewed appreciation for many of the things that we previously took for granted.  We are going to emerge with new skills, with a fresh perspective on the blessings in our lives, with a renewed confidence that comes with persevering through difficulty and succeeding, and with a desire to live life to its fullest every day.  My hope is also that we emerge from this time with a renewed sense of unity, as a school, community, state and nation.  In short, I am finding many reasons to be hopeful during this challenging time.

Students, thank you for doing your best to stay positive and to engage with your teachers and schoolwork during this time of online learning.  Parents, thank you for helping your student to stay positive, for encouraging them, and for tending to their physical and emotional needs.

For additional information, please reference the email sent out by Dr. Haddad on April 20th. A copy of the email can be found at http://svvsd.org/coronavirus.

Sincerely, 

Eric Rauschkolb
Niwot High School Principal
