Spring 2021, COVID-19

SPRING 2021

DPS and other school districts in the state have worked together to create a more dependable instructional framework as we head into the spring semester.  DPS will follow the state color dial – https://covid19.colorado.gov/data/covid-19-dial-dashboard  – and its own instructional framework, as indicated below.

What does this mean?  
 
As of December 30, 2020, Denver County is red, per the state’s color dial.  Given the DPS elementary framework, we will provide instruction either “in-person” or “remote” once we return to school in January.  If you opted for remote instruction, you will remain online (and we will revisit this come Spring Break or when the state dial turns orange, whichever comes first).
 

Important Dates to Calendar!

 
Monday, January 4th: Non-Contact Day for ALL Students; PD Day for ALL Staff; NO SCHOOL!
 
Tuesday, January 5th: Preschool returns for IN-PERSON instruction
 
Tuesday, January 5th-Friday, January 8th: Fully REMOTE instruction K-5
 
Monday, January 11th: In-person instruction resumes for K-5 (5th grade remains hybrid)
 
Friday, January 29th AND Friday, February 12th, ACCESS Testing: These are 100% remote days for K-5 students (instruction will be posted) as we need to test our multilingual learners (MLL) these days.  If you are a family of an MLL that is 100% remote, we will be scheduling times for you to safely bring your student into the building for ACCESS testing.  In-person MLLs will be tested during the regular school day.  Preschool is in person these days.
