Dear Open School Community,

First, we want to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back from Winter Break. We hope everyone had a restful and restorative break.
As we return to school, in a full virtually connected environment, please know we are preparing for a return to a mixed learning environment with some families continuing in a virtually connected environment, some in-person and some hybrid. We believe that there were numerous successes in our approach to learning in the fall semester, it would be disingenuous to suggest there haven’t been challenges. As a result, elementary and secondary teams continue to make adjustments to better serve our students. We know that it is difficult to maintain a sense of community and ensure maximum student engagement. Please know this is a community effort and we appreciate all the efforts students, parents, and staff are making as we continue to work through the challenges of providing meaningful learning for our students during this continuing COVID-19 crisis.

Important in-person and hybrid return* dates include:

January 6: Preschool continues in-person learning
Grades K-6 continue remote learning
Grades 7-12 continue remote learning

January 19: Grades K-6 in-person learning begins again

January 25: Grades 7-12 hybrid learning begins again

Jeffco Schools has begun to roll out a vaccine schedule for employees that will phase in over the next several months. We are hopeful that this process will begin to have a notable impact on our ability to return in-person fully to our community. In the meantime, it will be important to remain diligent to follow COVID-19 protocols and procedures in school and in the community at large. Thank you in advance for your diligence; our responsiveness to these protocols gives us the best chance for returning safely.

We are excited to be welcoming students and families back. We know that relationships and Advising are the core of our program and encourage families to remain connected with their Advisor to ensure they are engaged and informed with the goings on of the Open School during the spring semester. Also, for parents, please know PTSO and Circle are additional places to find connection to other families in the community. Our next PTSO meeting is on January 12th at 5:30 PM and the next Circle meeting is on January 20th at 5:00PM.

Happy 2021!
Melyssa, Sangita, and Scott
