During these uncertain times, all of us may experience stress, and no matter how much we may try to protect our children from what is in the news, they are going to hear things or they will pick up on the stress levels of the adults around them.  If you are concerned about any anxiety your child is experiencing, you can request some support from Mrs. Acker or Mrs. Jones by submitting this form: Student Request Form. They will receive the form and reach out to you or your child.  

Jeffco Public Schools initiated its Remote Learning and Work Plan on March 16 and will continue with this program until April 17, with a one-week hiatus for the district’s spring break scheduled for March 23 - 27. In addition, the district will continue to provide Grab & Go food services to students throughout the same period. Any student can receive breakfast and lunch.

Jeffco Public Schools will provide regular updates to the community during the closure of its school buildings. All employees will continue to be paid. The district office operations have transitioned to a remote work plan for those employees whose roles enable them to work from home. All employees have been instructed to practice “social distancing” and other CDC-recommended hygiene practices to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We know that this information brings both certainty and uncertainty for the weeks ahead. We’d ask that we allow each other a measure of grace, as we develop plans for what school looks like in the weeks ahead. Now, more than ever, we must work together for the benefit of our children and our community. We thank you for being patient as we navigate this new reality.

Please review our Coronavirus COVID-19 webpage for updated information and FAQs. This message will focus on five topics: Remote Learning and Work Plan, homeschooling, food services, cleaning schools, staying healthy tips.

Remote Learning & Work Plan: 

We have been planning to implement remote learning since we learned that the COVID-19 outbreak may be widespread to the point that we would need to close school buildings. We are excited to be able to implement remote learning to continue educating our students. Remote learning is a way to maintain the integrity of teaching and learning during this time of ambiguity. It is hard to predict how long the virus will remain active in our community and by offering remote learning to our students, Jeffco continues to elevate the importance of instruction for our students - our primary role in the community. Moreover, the instructional hours that are offered to students in a remote environment count toward the state-mandated instructional hours for the school year. These factors supported our decision to continue teaching and learning in a remote environment.  

The Remote Learning and Work Plan is new and we will no doubt meet some challenges along the way. Please know we are here to support our families and continue our high-quality education for all Jeffco Public Schools students. We have worked to ensure tools, systems, and supports are in place for blended and online learning for students, though it may look and be delivered in different ways depending on a student’s grade. 

Special Education/Gifted & Talented/Health Services:

Our Student Success office is coordinating efforts to ensure student educational needs are met to the greatest extent possible during these unique circumstances. The Health Services Department will staff nurses to provide resources related to COVID-19 and general health. Student Services will provide social-emotional support for students and their families. Special Education professionals will coordinate with teachers to provide support to students with disabilities. Gifted & Talented will coordinate to provide support to students with Advanced Learning Plans. Students receiving case management or navigation services from Student Engagement will continue to receive these supports via phone, text, or other mediums dependent on family resources. 

Below are guidelines and things to consider for students and families. 

Students:

  • Students will be bringing their Chromebook, iPad, laptop, charger, and headphones home.
    • If a student needs to borrow a device, they should work with their school to determine if extra devices are available. 
  • Students will need to ensure they have an internet connection at home. If your family does not have internet access at home, please contact your classroom teacher.   
  • Know your logins and passwords. Register in the Password Reset Tool
  • Know how to contact your school/teacher from home via Chromebook, laptop, or iPad.
  • Set up a place to focus on learning at home.
  • Have a few independent reading books.
  • Use the available technology self-help resources here to answer many common questions around applications and technology.
  • Attendance will be verified by online login time, phone calls or emails from parents, or work turned in
  • Work-Based Learning
    Students who are participating in an internship or apprenticeship as part of receiving school credit will be allowed to report to their employer as long as 1. the employer remains open and does not have any concerns regarding the virus, and 2. parent/guardian has approved continuing with the internship or apprenticeship.

Food & Nutrition Services:

Beginning Monday 3/16 until Friday 3/27, “Grab and Go” meals will be available for collection for Breakfast (8:00-9:00a) and Lunch (11:30a - 12:30p) at the following school locations:

  • Arvada K-8 School
  • Colorow Elementary School
  • Edgewater Elementary School
  • Foothills Elementary School
  • Lasley Elementary School 
  • Parr Elementary School

Families and students can go to any of these locations to collect food. We will be serving anyone in need. We will also be donating perishable foods and working with our local food banks in order to mitigate the community impact of missing food services in schools. Additional school distribution locations will be added as needed.

Cleaning Schools & Buses:

District buildings and school buses will continue to be cleaned per standard procedures. In the event of a confirmation of an active Coronavirus COVID-19 case affecting the building, more intensive cleaning will occur per CDC guidelines.

Before & After Care Programs:

School-Aged Enrichment (SAE) will not be available next week, March 16 through March 20, or over spring break, March 23 through March 27. There will be no students and no after school care in any Jeffco school buildings until further notice beginning Monday, March 16th.
