(January 20, 2021)


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is using a new framework to monitor COVID-19 outbreaks and conditions, known as the COVID-19 Dial Framework.


Middle and High School Students
Last update: January 20, 2021

During the DCSD Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, January 19, it was decided that our middle and high school students will remain in remote learning for the time being. This will continue to provide some consistency for students and staff while we work to make improvements to our hybrid/in-person learning model.

For additional information, please reference the following email communication:



Our target for returning middle and high school to hybrid/in-person learning is now Monday, February 8
An update on our readiness will be provided at the next Board meeting on Tuesday, February 2.

*This information is for DCSD’s neighborhood, district-operated middle and high schools only. Students enrolled in DCSD eLearning will remain in eLearning for the remainder of the school year. If your child attends a DCSD charter school, please check with your child’s school regarding their current learning model.
