Cache La Poudre Middle School

Dear CLPMS Parents and Guardians,

            Greetings from your Pirate Ship! I am beyond excited to return to school and be with our Pirate Family once again. While this will be a school year like none of us have ever experienced, we commit to providing the exceptional, student centered, and fun CLP middle school experience you desire and expect for your children.

Student safety is always our top priority. Now that safety also means masks, sanitation, and social distancing; school operations will be restructured to adhere with safety guidelines and requirements. Wearing masks all day and following social distancing in a school requires tremendous creative thinking to ensure our students’ needs for structure and routine, socializing, collaborating, achieving high levels of learning, and feeling safe and comfortable at school are met.

We are working on plans to schedule mask breaks, get students outside through the school day, not use lockers, and do all that we do here at CLP to make it such a wonderful place to be, just with a twist. The specifics of these plans including supply lists will be sent to you next week. This year we welcome three new staff members to our ship:

- Mr. Lauritz is teaching 7th grade Math.

- Ms. Bramwell is joining Ms. Duke in the Counseling office as the 6th grade counselor.

- Ms. Reeves is teaching additional 6th grade English and Computer classes.

While students, parents, staff members, and now how we conduct business, change through the years, what makes CLPMS special remains constant. CLPMS is a community school with a long and proud tradition built on Relationships and Respect. Our students discuss how to treat one-another with respect and how to act with confidence through our Olweus weekly meetings. We are dedicated to the familial partnership we have with our community and parents, as strong community involvement is essential to an outstanding school and highly successful students. No matter what changes in society and school operations, we commit that we will hold true to these promises and qualities you expect from your school.
