Stuart id in order to get in. Students who do not have an id may
purchase an id wrist band for $2 at the entrance. Students who wish to
visit the movie room will need to have a signed movie permission form.

at the entrance on November 21st.
From the office of Dr. Rich Patterson, Principal -
Stuart Middle School continues to grow each year, we experience greater
and greater volumes of traffic - especially during morning drop-off
year, we have attempted to address the urgency of ongoing morning
traffic problems by helping to direct the flow and direction of cars at
the intersection of Joplin St. and 101st
Way. While doing so,
we've also had discussions with Commerce City Traffic and Public Works
staff. Through their traffic studies and common complaints from parents
and school staff, new signage is being posted and lanes will be painted
along Joplin St. Commerce City agreed that
they could help us with the morning traffic situation at our
intersection by providing new signage as well. Effective immediately on
Mondays through Fridays, all vehicles exiting 101st
Way onto Joplin
St. between 7am and 730am must make a right-hand turn only.
Additionally, when inside the school drop off lanes, please remember to
move forward as far forward as possible to let your student out of the
car. This greatly helps the flow of traffic move more
efficiently Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our
students safe and getting them to school on time.
This is a friendly reminder to inform you of our weather policy.
Weather - As we head into the winter months, we thought that this might be a good time to review some of our weather policies. Students will participate in recess if the temperature is 20 degrees or above. Exceptions to this guideline will be made in case of wet weather or other conditions. In the event that weather warrants we will bring students into the small gym at 7:00a.m (instead of the usual 7:20a.m.). Please remember to send your student to school dressed appropriately (hats, jackets, gloves, etc.).
