Elementary Students to Return to In-Person

DCSD Elementary Students to Return to In-Person Learning

Dear DCSD Family,

Last night the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education voted unanimously to return our elementary students to full-time, in-person learning by a target date of October 19, 2020. The Board will review the status of the targeted return at its next regularly scheduled board meeting on October 6.

The rationale for the vote was largely based on DCSD’s decision dashboard metrics.

A 100% eLearning model will continue to be offered to elementary school families who prefer that option.

DCSD will implement all health and safety mitigation measures, as outlined in its Road to Return plan, to ensure the safety of our elementary students and staff.

Returning middle and high school students to full-time, in-person learning will require more time to plan for logistical challenges, such as ensuring larger numbers of students can be distanced and that health and safety mitigation measures can be maintained. As such, DCSD staff will soon begin engaging with community members, educators, and staff on the feasibility and potential timing of returning middle school and high school students to full-time, in-person learning in the future.

Additional information about this transition will be forthcoming.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we navigate this ever-changing pandemic.

Douglas County School District

Estimada familia de DCSD:

Anoche, la Junta de Educación del Distrito Escolar del Condado de Douglas (DCSD) votó unánimemente para devolver nuestro estudiantes de primaria para el aprendizaje en persona a tiempo completo antes de la fecha límite del 19 de octubre de 2020. La Junta revisará el estado del retorno previsto en su próxima reunión de la junta programada regularmente el 6 de octubre.

La justificación de la votación se basó en gran medida en Métricas del panel de decisiones de DCSD .

Se seguirá ofreciendo un modelo 100% eLearning a las familias de la escuela primaria que prefieran esa opción.

DCSD implementará todos medidas de mitigación de salud y seguridad , como se describe en su plan Road to Return, para garantizar la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal de primaria.

El regreso de los estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria al aprendizaje en persona a tiempo completo requerirá más tiempo para planificar los desafíos logísticos, como garantizar que se pueda distanciar un mayor número de estudiantes y que medidas de mitigación de salud y seguridad puede ser mantenido. Como tal, el personal del DCSD pronto comenzará a interactuar con los miembros de la comunidad, los educadores y el personal sobre la viabilidad y el tiempo potencial de regresar a los estudiantes de la escuela intermedia y secundaria al aprendizaje en persona a tiempo completo en el futuro.

Próximamente se proporcionará información adicional sobre esta transición.

Gracias por su paciencia y apoyo continuos mientras navegamos por esta pandemia en constante cambio.

Distrito Escolar del Condado de Douglas
