Letter from the Superintendent:
Good Friday Morning,
I hope this email finds you and your family well. I know there are quite a few questions about the start of next year. If things were up to me we would start school as normal as we could. Students need face-to-face interactions with their peers and their teachers. We need face-to-face interaction with our peers and our students. The only way we do not return to face-to-face instruction is if the federal or state government makes an executive decision.
The district has been working on a reopening plan and I want to share it with you. Please take the time to read through it and if you have any questions please let me know I'll be glad to answer them.
There are still some things that will need to be worked through that pertains to particular schools and the principals and their leadership teams will be working on them, but this plan is what will guide decisions.
Stay strong, stay safe.
Yesterday Gov. Polis held a press conference where he stated that Colorado would be moving from Stay-at-Home to Safer-at-Home on April 26, this coming Sunday. As far as education is concerned it does not change anything that we are currently doing. During the phone call this morning with superintendents, Gov. Polis stated that the Colorado educational system would finish the school year in a distance learning model.
With the new Safer-at-Home what changes is retail can begin to go back to work with the same social distancing and no groups larger than 10 still in force. Also hair salons and tattoo parlors can reopen with guidance from the social distancing and no groups larger than 10. Restaurants are still closed to in house seating.
For us this means that we will finish the school year online. I will be working with administration in all three buildings to work through end of year checkout of students and staff. Once this process has been created I will share with you and the public. This also means that graduation will not take place on May 17. I do know that Mr. Waterman and Mrs. Miltenberger have been working with seniors to create a plan.
I know this is not how we wanted the year to end, but it is what it is, and we will make the best of it. Thank you for all that you do and continue to do for our students and community. Stay strong, stay safe and stay well.
