Safe Return-to-School Plan

Learning Plan for 2021-22 School Year

As we look ahead to next school year, we continue working closely with our trusted health partners in preparation for the return to school in the fall.  We’re excited to share our plans for a full return to in-person learning for all students in all grades next school year, and we’re optimistic that classrooms will look a lot more like they did prior to the pandemic.


What will classrooms look like for students?

We anticipate that students of all ages will participate in a regular schedule (full-time, in-person learning Monday-Friday) and that students will not need to be in cohorts.


We will continue to work with our health partners and share more details about health protocols as we get closer to the start of school in the fall.


Some health protocols may still be in place and we will continue to work with our Weld County Department of Health and Environment as well as the Colorado Department of Health and Environment.
