Back To School 2020 Update

Back To School 2020 Update
Posted on 07/17/2020
Dear DCSD Staff and Community,

Thank you for your feedback and questions in follow up to my email from Wednesday, July 14.

Transitioning our students and staff back to school requires community collaboration and we thank you for your continued partnership. We will continue to update and refine our re-entry plan to incorporate feedback, the changing environment, and pending guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on reopening schools protocols. This information, along with our, forthcoming, full plan document, and frequently asked questions will be presented and reviewed by the Douglas County Board of Education at its upcoming special meeting Saturday, July 25. 

We are listening to your concerns. We received many common questions that families feel they need answers to in order to select in-person learning or eLearning for their students. As recommended by our Task Force, we could also pivot to a hybrid model (more details included in the link below).

Next week, we will release a full plan document which will include information ranging from specific safety protocols in buildings to what lunch and recess will look like for in-person learning, Frequently Asked Questions and Answers, informational videos, and invites to upcoming town hall meetings. We hope the following information, along with the additional resources coming next week, will help better inform your decision.
