Village Insider (COVID-19): Issue 3

Aurora Community School

Governor Polis signed an executive order suspending in-person learning in public and private schools across the state from March 23-April 17; this means students will return to school on Monday, April 20th. However, the executive order directs schools to make every effort to provide alternative learning opportunities during this time, while taking into account the needs of our local community. We will share updates about this, in the coming days!

Remote Academic Learning

Because we won't have in-person learning prior to April 20th, we have decided to utilize blended learning (both online and in print) to meet the academic needs of our students. Our official blended learning will begin on Monday, March 30th.

Your child(ren)'s teacher(s) will send out newsletters, every weekend; please make sure to read these, as they have so much important information, that will support you and your student to be successful!

What to Expect

  • Teachers have created packets of work that will be included in soft copy (in the newsletter email) and available for pick up at the school each Friday between 11 am - 1 pm. If you are unable to pickup during this time, the paper packets will be mailed to your home.
  • Teachers are offering LIVE sessions, where they will provide instruction in content areas (see schedule below for more details).
  • Teachers will offer OFFICE HOURS for students to drop in and ask questions, get help on assignments, or just say hi to the teacher and friends (see schedule below for more details).
  • We are working on deploying technology to families by Friday, April 3. Please complete this technology survey, so we can better understand your needs; without this information, we are unable to share technology with you. Even if we share a device with you, if you don't have internet, you won't be able to use the device.
