Introduction

Welcome, Estrella Vista STEM Academy families!

We are diligently working to improve school culture. Having the right environment to support student learning is essential. Our goal is to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn in a fair and equitable educational setting. We look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders to foster this expectation.

As a STEM Academy, we believe each child is a treasure with unique gifts, talents, and capabilities. We work collaboratively to discover and nurture those abilities through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We expect all students and staff members to be respectful, dedicated, hardworking, independent thinkers, and problem solvers. 

Estrella Vista promotes four core values, which include the following:

  • We are a trusted and established community committed to setting high standards in STEM with integrity and fidelity.
  • We believe in developing responsible global citizens.
  • We strive for every student, staff member, and community member to exhibit the utmost respect in all situations.
  • We believe in building a cooperative and positive team environment conducive to the highest level of STEM learning. 

We look forward to having you back in person and participating as a school community. Go Hawks!

A Message from our principal

October 15, 2020

Dear EV Families,

We are so excited to welcome our Hawks back to the nest! We will begin in-person learning on October 22. We realize we could not accommodate every request at this time and will be monitoring attendance and class size to invite those on the waitlist to join in-person learning as soon as it is safe to do so.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. For those families who elected to have students return to campus for face-to-face learning, below is some important information to help you prepare. Now, more than ever, we will need to work together to maintain a safe learning environment for our EV students. Please review each of these in their entirety.

For a complete list of the district’s health and safety procedures, visit the Littleton Elementary School District Return to School Plan as well as the FAQ page on the district website

  • Littleton Return to School Daily Checklist
  • Littleton Reopening Expectations
  • Littleton Health and Safety Precautions
  • COVID-19 Waiver (signed copies for all enrolled students)

We also want to make sure our students return to a warm and inviting learning environment. For instance, facemasks and social distancing will be mandatory, but our students will be able to eat lunch in the cafenasium and enjoy recess outside. We will still utilize Google Classroom in all grade levels to some extent, but we will provide lessons and activities in person by the teacher. Please read Principal Durazo's entire return to school letter for a few additional processes we would like to share with you. Please also visit our Reopening Information page where you find all of this important information.

Sincerely, 

Nicole Durazo
