Attendance, Enrollment and Registration

Monique UrbanHello and welcome to Elk Creek! My name is Monique, and I've lived in Conifer for 22 years. I'm married and have a daughter who's attending college in Florida and a son attending Conifer High School.  I began at Elk Creek in May 2014, and I've been with Jeffco Public Schools since 2007. I look forward to assisting you with your enrollment/registration needs. If you ever have any questions, the best way to reach me is by email I can also assist you with any questions regarding attendance procedures.
