Dear Weld Re-8 Community,
Happy New Year to each of you. Like many of you, I am hopeful for a better year than 2020. As we resume school for your child(ren) on Tuesday, January 5, 2021
, I want to inform you of the plan for the next few days. We are continuing in all-remote learning for January 5 through January 8, 2021
. All students and all grade levels will be remote only during this time. On Monday, January 11, 2021
, we will resume the in person option as follows:
-All Preschool children can return to the in-person daily learning that began the school year.
-Grades Kindergarten through Grade 5 at Butler and Twombly can resume in-person everyday attendance at their school of enrollment.
-Homyak PK-8 will be offering in-person everyday.
-Grades 6-12 at Fort Lupton Middle School and Fort Lupton High School will be the hybrid schedule of every-other-day attendance according to assigned cohorts.
-Each of you can continue remote learning-only as well for your child(ren). Please reach out to your school of enrollment for any questions or clarification.
There are new documents that guide us through the necessary precautions regarding COVID-19. I am providing attachments for you to read over for information. We will continue to require face masks for all staff and students while maintaining the six (6) feet of physical distancing. We will work to provide a seating chart for your child in order to provide the ability to use the new targeted identification for those close contacts if a positive COVID case is identified. This will allow only those students in close contact with a positive case of COVID individual to go into quarantine and not the entire classroom of cohorts.
We will continue to provide any updates that become available. We receive a weekly data chart of positive COVID cases by age group and will always place the safety of students and staff at the forefront of all decisions.
I look forward to the return of students to classrooms and know that our staff is prepared to continue offering the best instruction.
