    Driveline News
    Earlier today, members of the STEM Administration, Deputy Dan Palermo, and representatives from the Douglas County Department of Public Works Engineering to discuss our traffic plan and driveline process.  On a whole, our school has made some great improvements, but we need to remind all drivers of a few things:
    1. There is no parking on Ridgeline or Barrons at any time.  Please don't park on either road as they have been zoned for no parking.  Additionally, parking on the west side of Barrons should be avoided because last year we found a rattlesnake nest near the road on the empty lot and believe the eggs have hatched.  Please avoid this area entirely.
    2. The east (MS Entrance) lot has been very open and there is plenty of room for cars, please use this lot as a way to ensure the safety of our students.  With both lots operational, vehicles are in and out of the lots very quickly.
    3. Remember the rules of driveline - "Right In, Right Out" - this helps to maintain a steady flow of traffic.  Turning left to enter our lots slows traffic down for all and is not approved in our traffic plan.
    4. The Douglas County Sheriff's department will be stepping up patrols of both Ridgeline and Barrons to enforce the traffic laws.  We encourage everyone to follow our traffic plan as well as all posted speed limits and road signage.  We have been told they will be issuing tickets to individuals if necessary.
    As always, check out our Transportation page on the Parent's tab from the STEM School website for more details about the Driveline process.

    Thank you for doing your part to help keep our students safe and the drop off and pick up process run smoothly.

    Congratulations to our 3 STEM middle school students, Keith Hedlund (left), Walt Weiffenbach (middle), and Carter Bennett (right) who were recognized for their outstanding academic achievement by the Center for Bright Kids Western Academic Talent Search in May 2014.  Members of the talent search are already in the top 5% nationally for their academic performance, and then their scores on the SAT exams placed them additionally in the top 10% (Keith and Carter) or top 25% (Walt) of those gifted students.  Additional information can be found in the press release.
