Middle School Information

Middle school students will begin the semester remotely and learn fully online from Wednesday, January 6, through Friday, January 8. Beginning Monday, January 11, middle school students will return to our hybrid learning schedule, and continue to follow the schedule utilized in the fall with two days of in-person learning, two days of online learning, and asynchronous learning on Fridays with teacher office hours and small group and individualized student support. Students will stay in the same group they were assigned to during the first semester. 

Fully Synchronous Option

Families who began the school year with the hybrid model at their home school can opt to keep their students home and attend school in a fully synchronous online environment. It is important to note that in this model, the instruction is designed around the in-person or hybrid learning environment. Families selecting this option should plan to commit to the synchronous model through Spring Break to ensure consistency and continuity in our learning environments. Students should choose the model in which they will participate, and attend consistently. If you choose to utilize this learning option for your student, please contact your school principal by Monday, January 4.

Additional Schedule & Safety Information

  • Middle school students will attend school on a hybrid schedule where they will be assigned to one of two groups. Group 1 will attend in-person school on Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Group 2 will attend in-person school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Students with disabilities on an IEP will have the option to attend in-person learning Monday through Thursday.
  • On days when students are not physically in school, they will engage in a blend of synchronous (real-time) online learning with their classroom teacher and/or independent work as assigned. This will enable students to continue progressing in their curriculum.
  • Fridays will continue to be asynchronous learning days similar to our current remote-learning schedule. Teachers will still have office hours and some students may still be brought into the buildings for specialized instruction and support.
  • The school administrative teams in each feeder have worked together to assign students to Group 1 or Group 2 by household, making every effort to have middle school and elementary school students from the same household on the same schedule.
  • In order to minimize close contact with other students, there will be directional arrows in our hallways to help guide students. As much as possible, students will stay to the right in hallways and use the directional arrows to keep traffic flowing.
  • Upon arrival, students will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer and staff will check in with students to ensure they had their temperatures taken at home and are feeling well.
  • All students will wear face coverings while at school. We know that wearing a face covering all day can be difficult, especially for younger students, and we will plan to schedule appropriate socially-distanced breaks.
    • If a student is not able to wear a face covering at school, they will need to remain in the fully-remote learning environment.
  • Students will be seated spaced apart to the fullest distance possible in classrooms.
  • Middle school students will not be assigned lockers in alignment with our health agency partners’ school reopening guidance.
  • Students will attend electives on a regular schedule, however there will be less sharing of equipment and materials.
  • Students will be dismissed at exits in a way that keeps grade levels separated as much as possible and dismissal times may be staggered when needed to maintain social distancing.
  • While this is our plan at this time, the evolving nature of this health crisis will require us to remain flexible. The Governor’s Office, as well as our local and state health departments, could issue new orders at any time that would require us to alter our current plans.

In the event that we become aware of a positive and/or suspected case of COVID-19 in a classroom or a school environment, our local health department has assigned an epidemiologist and several contact tracers to St. Vrain who will work closely with our district nurses and leadership in determining and guiding the appropriate next steps. Toward this end, our system is well-prepared to support a robust online, synchronous learning environment in the event students or staff need to quarantine or isolate for a period of time. If it becomes necessary to temporarily return to a fully-online learning environment, we will work closely with our county and state health agency partners on recommended actions and closely adhere to their guidance and directions. Communication regarding quarantines will be directly with those impacted.
