Also, keep in mind that we do not have school on Friday, October 9 for a teacher prep and plan day, as well as Friday, October 16th for conferences comp day.
If at any time you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Student Progress While Out of School
Teachers are noticing an uptick of missing assignments, and when students are gone for more than a day or two, these assignments are not getting made up. Teachers are eager to support students while they are out and make sure students are keeping up with the learning.
Quarter One grades are finalized on October 23rd.
Please make sure your student is in touch with his/her teachers when they are out of school.
We can still have fun and be socially distanced!

MEET OUR STAFF...
Ms. Stephanie Matthews
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 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.
