Everyone has been awaiting this information. Jeffco Public Schools released information to staff via email regarding the reopening plans and it is being shared on social media. The community email release isn’t due until Friday, June 19th (tomorrow) but since it’s out there on social media groups, we’re sharing here so everyone has access and no additional rumors are created. The content is copied word for word below:
Dear Jeffco Public Schools staff,
This message will be sent to our entire Jeffco community Friday, June 19
We are pleased to inform you that school will reopen in Jeffco Public Schools the week of August 24th. Start days may vary by school and grade. In July, schools will be in contact with families to find out about their plans for return to school and to share additional scheduling information. Teachers are still scheduled to return to work on August 12th. School-based classified staff are still scheduled to return to work on August 18th. The new school start date is intended to provide additional time for teacher planning, professional learning, and school preparation. Administrators will be sharing additional scheduling information with staff as it is known.
We are also pleased to announce as part of our RestartJeffco effort that we will be restoring a 100% in-person option for elementary (PreK, K-5, and K-6 buildings) students, along with an all-remote learning option for families to choose. We will be putting in place numerous public health provisions so that we can protect the health of our students, staff, and community as we reopen schools.
Jeffco Public Schools continues to evaluate international systems, coordinate with other regional districts, review and consider guidance from public health, and adapt to changing conditions as we consider our secondary (middle and high) schools. PreK-8 schools will reopen with a 100% in-person model for PreK-5 (elementary) students, with decisions still to come for middle (grades 6-8) and high (grades 9-12) school students.
Final determinations and more detail on our RestartJeffco plan will be released July 8th. Please continue to check the RestartJeffco website for details and summer resource information.
