Florence Crittenton High School

Are you a young mother? Get in touch!

Students and Families,
We are pleased to announce that many of our staff members will receive their second COVID vaccine this Wednesday, March 10th. School will be open on Wednesday, March 10th and classes will be held as usual. However, we have been informed that some vaccine recipients may experience significant symptoms after the second dose, which would require them to stay home. As a precaution, we will be closed on Thursday, March 11th to allow staff members time to recover from the second vaccine dose. High school students will not have any in-person or online classes, and attendance will not be taken. ECE students will have remote learning opportunities available to them and moms can work with their children on these activities that day. We apologize for any inconvenience this creates for our community, but we are looking forward to making sure all of our staff members are safe and can work to keep our campus open safely. Please feel free to call the main office at 720-423-7900 with any questions. Thank you!
Estudiantes y familias,
Nos complace anunciar que muchos de los miembros de nuestro personal recibirán su segunda vacuna covid este miércoles, 10 de marzo. La escuela estará abierta el miércoles 10 de marzo y las clases se llevarán a cabo como de costumbre. Sin embargo, hemos sido informados que algunos receptores de vacunas pueden experimentar síntomas significativos después de la segunda dosis, lo que requeriría que se quedan en casa. Como precaución, estaremos cerrados el jueves 11 de marzo para permitir que los miembros del personal se recuperen de la segunda dosis de vacunas. Los estudiantes de secundaria no tendrán clases en persona o en línea, y no se tomarán la asistencia. Los estudiantes de ECE tendrán oportunidades de aprendizaje remoto disponibles para ellos y las mamás pueden trabajar con sus hijos en estas actividades ese día. Pedimos disculpas por cualquier inconveniente que esto crea para nuestra comunidad, pero esperamos asegurarse de que todos los miembros de nuestro personal estén seguros y que puedan trabajar para mantener nuestro campus abierto con seguridad. No dude en llamar a la oficina principal al 720-423-7900 con cualquier pregunta. ¡Gracias!

Through a unique public-private partnership, Denver Public Schools and Florence Crittenton Services provide on-site high school academics, after-school tutoring, and post-secondary readiness to pregnant and parenting girls ages 14 to 21.

New mothers receive at least six weeks of homebound academic and social-emotional support while on school maternity leave. In addition, teen mothers enrolled at the high school are able to participate in concurrent enrollment college courses, allowing them to take remedial coursework and first-year classes while still receiving the social-emotional support and child care from Florence Crittenton Services which helps them to succeed.

The high school has a state-of-the-art STEM classroom and a Certified Nursing Assistant program with paid internships. It also has a new gymnasium with safe and appropriate fitness equipment for pregnant and parenting students for physical education classes as well as after-school opportunities for the whole family, including yoga, playgroups, and dance classes.
