Thank you to all of the families who joined us on our annual Cyberschool Hike Day on September 13th! This year families met at four different hike locations around our state and enjoyed the great Colorado outdoors while reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.
Not only is this annual event a great opportunity for the families and students in our community to get together but it also helps celebrate recreational safety awareness in Colorado, raising much needed funds for local search and rescue and paying tribute to a special child.
On October 2, 1999, Jaryd Atadero went missing in the Colorado wilderness while on a hike at the age of three. Despite a massive search and rescue effort, Jaryd was never found. As an important reminder of the need for recreational safety, the State of Colorado and Governor Hickenlooper proclaimed September 7 – 13, 2014 as Recreational Safety Awareness Week in Jaryd’s memory. Every year we honor Jaryd's memory and celebrate this weeklong event with CyberSchool Hike Day.
Every year our events grow as more families become involved with the cyberschool community. If you are a cyberschool veteran or this is your families first year attending a cyberschool, we invite you to join us at future events.
