We Are Pinnacle!


In an effort to improve the safety of our students as they cross the parking lot we are asking that cell phones not be used as you are entering and driving through the parking lot.  We have had several incidents where drivers were using their phones and are not paying attention to the people who are directing traffic.  We are in the parking lot to maintain an orderly flow of traffic and to keep all of our students safe as they are coming to and leaving school.  The most important part of our job is the safety of the students, and we take that seriously.  Please help us by doing your part and ensure that you are not distracted by anything while you are driving in the school parking lot.

En un esfuerzo por mejorar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes al cruzar el estacionamiento estamos pidiendo que los teléfonos celulares no deben ser utilizados cuando usted está entrandoal estacionamiento.  Hemos tenido varios incidentes en los que los conductores estaban utilizando sus teléfonos y no están prestando atención a las personas que están dirigiendo el tráfico. Estamos en el estacionamiento para mantener el movimiento rapido del tráfico y para mantener a todos nuestros estudiantes seguros, ya que están llegando a la escuela y salir.  La parte más importante de nuestro trabajo es la seguridad de los estudiantes, y nosotros lo tomamos en serio. Por favor ayúdenos a hacer su parte y asegurarse de que no se distraiga con nada mientras conduce en el estacionamiento de la escuela.

Pinnacle Performance Information

Each year, school districts in Colorado are required to report school performance to the community, as required by No Child Left Behind. Because this required information is available on the Colorado Department of Education’s website, districts are no longer required to produce an individual annual report to the public. Instructions on accessing school and district performance are available by clicking the link below.

 If you do not have access to the Internet or would prefer to receive a hard copy of this information from the district, contact Liz Schmit at (303) 866-3299 or by mail at 1580 Logan Street Suite 210, Denver, Colorado 80203. A paper version will be mailed to you or will be available for pickup.

Annual Report Access Information

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 The Pinnacle Charter School is committed to supporting the educational needs of our students.  If your children attend Pinnacle and are living in the following situations there may be additional educational support available to you. Supports that may be available include: transportation services, information about additional health or educational services, resources for after-school programs, and payment of costs associated with uniforms or graduation.

Are you or your children:

o   sharing living arrangements with other people due to your loss of housing, economic hardship, or for a similar reason?

o   living in a motel, hotel, trailer park or camping ground due to the lack of alternative accommodations?
