    Mapleton recognizes that when children are well-nourished, their ability to learn improves. To continue with our commitment to providing delicious and well-balanced meals to students, we are offering walk up or drive through 'Grab & Go' meals at five sites in Mapleton to ensure no one learns on an empty stomach. 

    Meals may be picked up from the following locations, Monday - Friday,  between 11:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m., through Friday, April 17.

    Global Primary Academy
     (7480 N. Broadway, Denver) - Pick up will be in the bus loop by GPA.

    Clayton Partnership School (Skyview Campus) - Pick up will be in the Clayton loop

    Meadow Community School (9150 Monroe St, Thornton) - Pick up will be on the west side of the building.

    Welby Community School (1200 E. 78th Ave., Denver) - Pick up will be in the bus loop beginning on the north side of the building.

    York International School (9200 York St., Thornton) - Pick up will be in the bus loop

    On Fridays, families are encouraged to take home meals for Saturday and Sunday, too! 

    All families will receive lunch for the day and breakfast for the next day. These meals will be available to all children through age 18, regardless of what school they attend. No paperwork, proof of residence, or student identification is required. This program is for pick-up of meals only. Meals cannot be consumed on-site.

    Gov. Polis issued a state-wide 'stay-at-home' order to stop the spread of COVID-19. Under this order, picking up food is considered essential travel and families are still invited to visit our 'grab and go' sites. We hope to see you soon!

  • What is coronavirus (COVID-19)?

    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. These viruses spread through coughing or sneezing, much like the flu.

    What can I do now?

    As best practice for overall health in cold and flu season, engage in every day, preventative measures to prevent the spread of germs and avoid illness, such as:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (about as long as it takes to sing the ABCs). If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
    • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing.
    • Avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose with unwashed hands.
    • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
    • Stay home/keep children home if they are sick. The CDC recommends that individuals remain home for at least 24 hours after a fever or signs of a fever (i.e., chills, feeling warm, flushed appearance.) Please notify your child’s school if your child needs to stay home sick and, if possible, share their symptoms. If they have a positive influenza diagnosis, please also share that information.
    • Get a flu shot if you have not gotten one this year. It’s not too late! 

    Update your contact information

    • Please make sure your contact information, including phone numbers and email, are up to date on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. This will ensure you do not miss out on any important updates. Please call or visit your child's school if you need help updating your contact information. 

    What is Mapleton doing?

    Our focus remains on providing safe, healthy learning environments for our students and staff. We will continue to work closely with public health partners to monitor the situation and provide additional communication as needed. In the event of an outbreak in our community, we would follow our public health partners’ lead on any quarantines, closures or other health measures as necessary. 

    Additionally, we maintain stringent cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting practices at all schools to help avoid disease transmission.
