September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month —a time to raise awareness of this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. We use this month to shift public perception, spread hope and share vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is ensuring that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help.

Construction Delays and Attendance

We are all finding the new surface of Hwy 550 delightful to drive on but the construction delays are a continued headache. Not to worry. Ouray School will be flexible on morning attendance until the construction is completed or no longer impacting morning commutes.


Superintendent's Message

Welcome to our school! I am so pleased to welcome our new students as well as our returning students. We have made many recent improvements to our campus and we continue to expand our extra-curricular programs to ensure that all students may make the most of their time and explore a broad variety of interests. We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go. As always, I am happy to receive feedback and suggestions and my door is always open. Here’s to another great year!
