Each 2020 Boettcher Scholarship finalist was asked to identify one teacher who impacted their lives and made significant contributions to their growth and education. Our 2020 Boettcher Scholarship finalist Benisa Ellis chose Mrs. Renee Loflin as their teacher nominee in recognition of Mrs. Loflin’s passion for the profession and dedication to their students. In addition to a plaque, the recipients of the Teacher Recognition Award will receive a $500 grant, which they may use toward an educational program, professional development, or project to benefit students at our school. Mrs. Loflin, this award is the Boettcher Foundation’s way of telling you that they appreciate your commitment to your students and to our community. We are incredibly proud to have you as a teacher in our school community and thank you for inspiring not only your students but also setting a standard of excellence for others in your profession.
SHS Students: As we embark on a new model of instruction, I would like you to remember who we are. WE ARE LONGHORNS! Being a lifetime Longhorn myself, there is a certain amount of pride that statement conjures up. It means we overcome obstacles, we will persevere in the face of adversity, and together as a community we will prevail. WE ARE LONGHORNS! Remote learning will come with obstacles for us. Together we will find solutions. Many of these problems are not even known at this time, but we will solve them by working together, by communicating our needs, and by refusing to allow a difficult situation to break us. WE ARE LONGHORNS! At the end of this phase of learning each of you will be in one of two categories. One group will emerge brighter, more independent, more responsible, and further down the road at achieving your goals in life. The other group will have an excuse for failing. Each of those excuses are nothing more than an obstacle you choose not to overcome. Together, we are capable of prevailing, regardless of the obstacles. WE ARE LONGHORNS! This time of your life is temporary. We are here to support you. Communicate your needs with us and we can emerge from this in a few weeks better for the experience. WE ARE LONGHORNS! I look forward to seeing every one of you today!
Congratulations Benisa Ellis for being selected as a recipient of the Boettcher Scholarship! SHS is proud of you!

Springfield CMAS Testing Update... Spring CMAS testing is currently on hold. Springfield School District had petitioned for an early testing window to open on March 23, 2020. However, the Colorado Department of Education has made the determination that the testing window will not open. At this time it is uncertain when students at Springfield Schools will be tested in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. All Social Studies state tests have been cancelled for the 2020 testing session. SAT and PSAT testing is also suspended at this time. As the SAT is extraordinarily important for students across the state, for scholarship and college application purposes, CDE is currently working with CollegeBoard to ensure that opportunities for testing will be made available for our students. The schedule on the website will be updated as soon as information is made available. If you have any further questions about testing, please contact Ginger Walker, District Assessment Coordinator, at email@example.com, Kyle Lasley, High School Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Richard Hargrove, Superintendent, at email@example.com.

Currently, CHSAA has cancelled all activities, including athletic practices through April 6th, 2020. In line with these decisions, we have cancelled all before or after school facility use of buildings by the community and any before or after school district related activities until April 6th ,2020. We will re-evaluate these decisions as appropriate. It is important to note that there is potential and probability for school closure.
