With the recently approved change in start time for schools in Cherry Creek, all students in 3rd through 11th
grade are being invited to participate in a survey on sleep habits,
daily routine, and general wellbeing. While existing sleep research
indicates the change in start times will have an overall positive
effect, we are committed to understanding the impact this change has on
our students, parents and staff. With this understanding, we can
determine what areas of additional support, if any, may be needed as we
make this transition.
Download a copy of the survey to review and then check your email for more information.

Dear Parent or Guardian,
During the 2015 legislative session, lawmakers passed SB 15-223 which gives parents the right to refuse to have their children take the state standardized tests CMAS, PARCC and the PSAT/SAT without any negative consequences to the student, teacher or school.
The Cherry Creek School District has created a form for parents which can be found on the district's website.
Please fill out the form as soon as possible so that your child's school can plan for those students who will not be taking the test, and so we can provide the Colorado Department of Education with an accurate count of parent refusals.
Overland High School is committed to providing a learning environment where students, staff, and community members feel safe. This includes attention to both physical and psychological school safety. Each year, we revise our Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Template, which outlines important safety procedures we follow. This includes items such as our drill schedules and plans for preparation and response to potential school emergencies. On a regular basis we conduct Fire, Secure Perimeter, and Lockdown drills, and we continuously revisit and revise all safety procedures. All of our procedures are designed in accordance with recommendations of best practice made from both external agencies and the Cherry Creek School District. By establishing such proactive measures, and continually reflecting upon and adjusting our plans as needed, Overland High School strives to promote and maintain a safe learning environment. For any questions related to school safety at Overland High School, please contact Stephen DeSchryver, Assistant Principal, at 720-747-3751.
