Weld Re-8 Community,
I hope this communication finds you healthy and well. As we continue through the 2020-2021 school year, it is difficult to make sense of our journey in reflection, let alone predicting the future. We have been a part of a pandemic that has changed the daily interaction for each of us.
As we continue on through the year, I want to provide you with updates that will provide additional information for you. We are the recipient of Corona Virus Relief Funds which has allowed us to purchase a Chromebook for every student in Weld Re-8. In addition, we will be installing an air cleaning system in each of our buildings. The product is Global Plasma Solutions and is designed to be installed on every heating/cooling unit. It will kill bacteria, viruses (including COVID-19) and mold. This will be a permanent solution to air quality standards in our schools. We are discovering more scientific data around the importance of air filtration to stop the spread of the Virus. We have also received the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER 1 and 2) from the federal government. These dollars are to be used for any learning loss that may have, or is, occurring due to the remote learning platform. We are in the early stages of planning around the student learning enhancement that will utilize these monies. I will keep you updated on the allowable usage of these monies and the plan to insure each student is receiving the best education in Weld Re-8.
We are nearing the Parent-Teacher Conference time of year. Each school will reach out to you for scheduling these conferences. Butler and Twombly Elementary as well as Little Trappers Preschool will host these on February 10 and 11, 2021 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM. These will continue to be done in remote fashion-only in order to insure everyone’s health and safety. Homyak PK-8, Fort Lupton Middle School and Fort Lupton High School will hold theirs on March 17th and 18th from 4:00 to 8:00 PM. I would encourage each of you to take meet with your student's teachers during one of these times.
Thank you for your grace and patience.
