Getting Started at Legacy Academy!

Please refer to the following list of helpful information and tips for families that are new to our school or if you need a reminder on Legacy Academy policies.

  • Birth Certificates – Turn into office, email to info@legacyk8.org or fax to 303-646-2636.  A copy of your child’s state issued birth certificate is required before attending school in Colorado.  If you do not already have an original, please order as soon as possible as this can take over 6 weeks to receive.  
  • Immunizations – Turn into office, email to info@legacyk8.org or fax to 303-646-2636. State law requires that specific immunizations be in place in order for students to attend public school in Colorado.  Please contact your child’s doctor to make sure they have the required immunizations and if needed to make an appointment.

NOTE: Students entering 6th grade, must have a Tdap which is a booster immunization of tetanus, pertussis, and diphtheria.

Parents who have religious or personal objections to immunizations, or students who have a medical reason for exemption, may sign a form at the school office.  Please be aware that students who have exemptions will be excluded from school if an outbreak of a specified common disease occurs.  

  • Uniforms – Legacy Academy requires that all students wear a uniform. Details about uniforms are online in our handbook. Uniforms can be purchased from any retail source provided that the clothing items meet Legacy’s uniform requirements.  To view or order uniforms online, use the following links.

PTCO periodically sponsor used uniform sales that are advertised in parent emails and on our website. These events are excellent times to find gently used uniforms at great prices. The clothing at these sales has often been donated back to the PTCO by Legacy families whose students have grown out of their uniforms.

  • School Pool  – Legacy Academy is pleased to continue our partnership with Way to Go/Schoolpool to assist parents that are interested in carpooling, to and from school with other families in their neighborhood.  To be added to Legacy’s Carpool please register on the following secure link: https://mywaytogo.org/s/schoolpool-legacy-aach14.  Questions can be directed to Way to Go at 303-458-7665 or waytogo@drcog.org .

  • Medication  – Students who require prescription medication during the school day must have a “Permission for Medication” form on file at the school health office before it can be administered.  This form requires a physician’s signature so please print this Permission for Medication and you can take it with you to your child’s appointment.
  • Technology Terms and Conditions – Please complete the Technology Terms and Conditions form confirming your understanding and acceptance of our expectations for Legacy Academy’s devices.

  1. Do I need to fill out forms and start up accounts for everything below, if we are a returning family? Maybe some? Or perhaps none?
