Dear Weld Re-8 Community:
As we begin our summer, I want to take a moment to thank you for your grace and patience throughout this past school year. No one could have predicted how this year would unfold with seemingly each day bringing new challenges. With that being said, family and staff members looked on as our 108th Fort Lupton High School graduation proceeded on May 29, 2021 with 160 seniors walking across the stage at Bob Felps Field in a live ceremony. With these latest Bluedevil graduates, our total number of Fort Lupton High School graduates has reached 8,204. I am proud of each one of the 2021 Bluedevil Graduates and their families for the grit and persistence in reaching this milestone!
I also want to pause and say thank you to our Weld Re-8 employee team. Each job family experienced significant challenges and opportunities with the COVID-19 Pandemic that officially changed our lives on March 13, 2020. I cannot express the number of decisions and issues that we faced head on to ensure our staff, students and community were safe in our learning environments. It feels inadequate to say a simple thank you given the realities that each of the teams (students, staff, parents) faced this school year. Weld Re-8 was able to continue to offer in-person learning throughout the course of the school year 2020-2021 due to your trust.
As we continue to monitor the pandemic and the improvement of in-person options, I will continue to keep you updated. Governor Polis has issued Public Health Order (PHO) 3rd Amended PHO 20-38.53121. I am including this as an attachment for your reading and review. This is in effect until July 1, 2021
. Here is an excerpt from that PHO:
A. FACE COVERINGS
1. Face coverings are required for certain individuals, age twelve (12) and older, in the following settings:
a. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated students, staff, and visitors to preschool through grade 12 schools (including extracurricular activities) and child care centers and services, including camps, except while participating in outdoor activities.
Currently, an Enrichment Summer School is beginning at both the elementary and secondary levels with Fort Lupton High School hosting grades 6-12 and Butler Elementary offering grades K-5. This enrichment opportunity offers students the chance to ensure they are prepared for the beginning of school in August of 2021.
Please visit our website for the Board of Education-approved school calendars for the next two school years. You will receive additional information from your school of enrollment as the end of July approaches. Weld Re-8 will offer both in-person and remote learning as full-time options for the next school year. Please contact your home school for more information.
It is an honor to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.
Superintendent Alan J. Kaylor
