The El Paso-Teller County Emergency Notification System is used to alert you of emergency situations that are a threat to life or property, or situations that are deemed dangerous by public safety officials. This may include, but is certainly not limited to, man-made disasters, hazardous materials incidents, missing persons, crime, or neighborhood/business evacuation notifications.
There is a smartphone application that all parents should be aware of. The application is called “AfterSchool”. It is being marketed as a “funny, anonymous school news” application, and encourages students to compliment and send funny messages all while being anonymous. The app has a troubling feature that only allows teenagers to access it. It uses a student’s Facebook credentials and the phone’s locating service to determine the student is either in the school or a member of the school’s student body. Inherently, this feature eliminates a parents ability to access the contents of the application.
Here is a link to help articulate what this smartphone application is all about: Safe, Smart & Social
The Peyton Way Foundation is an organization started by a group of local volunteers dedicated to promoting and supporting programs that will enhance academic, artistic, and athletic excellence.
Our mission is to provide financial support for programs that will enhance the educational opportunities of the students and staff in Peyton School District 23JT. To apply for funding throughout the year, (to be considered separately from the foundation’s Mini Grant Application), complete the Donation Request Form. Supporting our community will always be an important part of our organization, however, it is unfortunately impossible to honor all requests.
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) registered in the State of Colorado, the Foundation provides a tax-deductible vehicle for citizens, businesses and foundations to contribute to Peyton School District 23JT. The Foundation will be a source of financial support for specific needs that the school district is unable to fund, either by law or by budgetary limitations.
