New Legacy Charter School is a small public charter school tailored to the unique and multifaceted needs of teen parents, empowering them to create a legacy of education, quality parenting, and personal success for themselves and their children. We serve pregnant and parenting high school eligible students (male and female) and their children ages 0-5 in northwest Aurora, Colorado. We opened doors on August 31, 2015.

REMOTE LEARNING is HERE!  During this unprecedented time, we are all doing what needs to be done to stay safe and healthy, while continuing in our daily lives (as best as we can).  New Legacy is excited about providing a great educational service for our high school students and also our Early Learning Center (ELC) children.  Students for both the high school and the ELC will have daily assignments and daily contact with their teachers.  While we may be physically distant, we will be in constant contact with all our students and their parents; we will also be available for their questions daily.

High school students – during the week of March 30th, you will be completing projects that count for Intensive credit.  Look for a packet in the mail or check your email for these assignments.  Then, starting April 6th, your assignments will be online.  We will use a central Google Classroom page for this work (join using the code f4kvb5m).  Reach out to your advisor if you have any questions.

Students — are you ready for Remote Learning?

Attention New Legacy Charter School Students: for those that do not have a computer or internet access at home, please come to the school between 10 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday to check out a Chromebook and/or a wifi hotspot device.  Please do this as soon as possible.

School Store

Students and Parents/Guardians, our school is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3 pm for essential services.  Access is limited to students and parents/guardians for the purposes of getting technology support or getting supplies like notebooks,diapers, formula, wipes, and food (gift cards)

New Legacy Remote Learning from March 30th to April 17th

Governor Jared Polis issued an executive order to suspend in-person instruction at all public and private schools in Colorado from March 23 to April 17. This is in an effort to help curb the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state. This means all students in Colorado will not attend classes in person through April 17.  Also during this time, no events will be occuring in the building.

The order also directs the Commissioner of Education to support school districts in developing and implementing plans to assist students and families in accessing alternative learning, providing free and reduced lunch and breakfast, and offering waivers for instructional time as appropriate.

New Legacy Charter School is currently planning for remote learning opportunities for both our high school students and our Early Learning Center students starting March 30th. We will continue to provide updates and share information with you through phone calls, emails and our website www.newlegacycharter.org.  And since New Legacy’s food provider is APS, please remember you can get free breakfast and lunch during remote learning.  See this link for more details: APS Offers FREE Breakfast and Lunch During Extended Break.

We know this news may bring up many questions and concerns. Students, please communicate with your advisors, principal (lbock@newlegacycharter.net) or executive director (sbartholomew@newlegacycharter.net) if you have specific questions.  Also, we will be calling each of you to see how you are doing and how we can support you.  If you have not heard from us, please call the school at 303-340-7880 and leave a message with your name and current phone number.  As we develop plans for what school will look like in the weeks ahead, we will share that information with you.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. The safety and wellbeing of our students, staff, families and community is our top priority.

COVID-19 Information

With the heightened concerns of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), New Legacy would like to share some important information with our students, families, and friends.  We will be following all state guidelines regarding the virus.

We strongly urge the students, families, and friends of New Legacy to take these essential health precautions:

  • Stay home when you are sick, and keep your children at home when they are sick.  (New Legacy will work with students and families to support with your health and your academics – so please communicate with us.)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Finally, here are a few helpful links:

  • CDC Guidelines: Federal guidelines about symptoms, prevention and what to do if you think you are sick.
  • CO State Health Department  for information about state policy changes, testing locations and other state updates.
  • Symptoms of Coronavirus  This is the federal guidelines for the illness- it is different from the common cold or seasonal flu.
