News from the Principal, September 9, 2020
Hello Parents and Families,
Thank you for all your support--your students have been doing great (both in person and on rolling remote). We are so proud of their efforts!
Students have been showing up with their IDs, their masks on and ready to learn. They are so much fun to greet in the morning.
If at any time you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Synchronous Learning Information
An important element of providing equity across Englewood Schools during Rolling Remote and eLearning is having access to recordings of prior synchronous instruction when a student may not be able to attend the live synchronous class/instruction or would like to review the content for reinforcement and/or remediation of particular concepts. Therefore, teachers will have the option to record synchronous lessons so that students can access the instruction at a later time.
A teacher’s synchronous instruction may be recorded and uploaded to the Learning Management System (Google Classroom or Seesaw) during the Rolling Remote or Englewood eLearning classes. The LMS is monitored by the teacher so that only students in the class can access these recordings. The use of this recording is to provide access to instruction for classmates that may not be able to attend at the regularly scheduled class time due to illness, doctor’s appointments, etc. or would like to revisit previously delivered content or instruction.
In Englewood, we also take protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) very seriously. It is important to understand that these recordings are for access and use only by students in the class. If you have questions with regard to your child’s privacy, please contact your student's teachers so that we can discuss options with regard to your student’s individual picture and/or voice being recorded during synchronous instruction. Please email your student's teachers no later than September 14, 2020 so we can make appropriate arrangements prior to any classes being recorded. Thank you for your continued support and understanding during COVID. In Englewood, we continue to build a new tradition of excellence for all our students.
We will continue to develop plans for the 20-21 school year with guidance from CDPHE, Tri-County Health, CDE, and the governor's office. Recommendations change daily, and our plan will be flexible and responsive to the changing guidance.
Englewood Schools 20-21 Calendar
The first day of school for all EMS/ELA students will be Thursday, August 27th.
Students can arrive starting at 8:00 am. More details coming soon.
Englewood Schools uses four metrics (with Arapahoe County data) to determine if we must shift from In-Person learning to Remote learning. These metrics are based on science, facts and the best interests of our students and staff.
