Continued Distance Learning Through the End of the Year

Hello Garfield Re-2 Family:

As you may know, the Governor had a press conference this week to announce his “Safer at Home,” Phase 2 of the State’s Cornonavirus response plan. Although there was some initial confusion between the press conference and the Governor’s Office press release, we received clarification from Governor Polis and Commissioner Anthes that all schools will be closed for in-person learning for the remainder of the school year, with our online efforts continuing. The closure also includes all athletics and activities.

We know that this will create a host of other questions, concerns, and ideas. We will continue to flesh out Phase 2 of Distance Learning (see graphics below) with our administrative team, and we ask that you continue to use the diagram below to assist in answering specific questions.

We know that this is both good news and bad news for you. It is nice to have a final determination, however, we know that there we were all holding out a glimmer of hope that students would have a chance to return to school at least a few days at the end of the school year. We will work on plans together to define what end of year celebrations look like and help students clean out lockers, and desks, etc. in the next few weeks.

The School Board, Administrators, and teacher leaders appreciate the work that you have been doing at home to manage family life, work, and supporting your children in their learning. We greatly appreciate all of your efforts and we know that together, we've got this!
