He is a graduate of George Washington high school, and served five years as the site coordinator for a non-profit organization at Columbine Elementary School in the near northeast region of DPS before coming to the Noel Beacon center.
“I am so excited to be here at Noel and to have the opportunity to work with you and your children! My goal is to provide a program that enriches and supports students by offering a variety of after school activities that engage students and cater to their academic, artistic and athletic interests.” – Ron Harris, NBNC Program Coordinator
Due to severe winter weather conditions and heavy snowfall for Denver metro area, all Denver Public Schools will be closed Friday, Feb. 3. This closure includes all before- and after-school programming, athletics and after-school activities. All DPS district offices will also be closed.
In severe winter weather situations, school leaders must consider both education and safety in their decision making. The toughest call involves a weather pattern that includes heavy snowfall. The safety of the students is the primary consideration in the decision to close the school. We must be concerned with the youngest students who ride school buses as well as the most capable of our driving teenagers. In addition, the ability of CDOT to plow all of the streets traveled by buses and children as well as the ability of our maintenance staff to clear each school site has to be factored into any decision regarding closings. In some cases, public streets are unable to be cleared until the following day. It is also important to remember that weather and street conditions can vary greatly within the boundaries of Denver.
