Second Semester Coronavirus Information

Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) has shared numerous studies that have demonstrated that schools are not a primary source of transmission, as they have many controls and safety protocols in place making them safer environments than most public spaces. Accordingly, based on the guidance from our county and state health agencies, alongside feedback we have received from our teachers and parents, we plan to begin the second semester on January 6 with the following in-person learning schedule:

  • Preschool students will attend school in-person with the schedule they selected at registration.  
  • Elementary school students will attend school in-person four days per week for all students (Monday – Thursday), beginning Wednesday, January 6. Fridays will be scheduled as a fully asynchronous learning day. 
  • Middle school students will return to in-person learning four days per week beginning Monday, March 29. Additionally, middle schools will continue to support the Friday Academic Independent/Peer Work Centers for students to engage in independent or small group work during asynchronous Fridays. For the remainder of the semester, Fridays will continue to be asynchronous learning days in order for teachers to have appropriate time to plan and support students who choose to continue learning in the online environment, while also teaching students in-person. Families who wish to remain in the online synchronous learning model after Spring Break may do so for the remainder of this academic year.
  • High school students will return to in-person learning four days per week beginning Monday, March 29. Additionally, high schools will continue to support the Friday Academic Independent/Peer Work Centers for students to engage in independent or small group work during asynchronous Fridays. For the remainder of the semester, Fridays will continue to be asynchronous learning days in order for teachers to have appropriate time to plan and support students who choose to continue learning in the online environment, while also teaching students in-person. Families who wish to remain in the online synchronous learning model after Spring Break may do so for the remainder of this academic year
  • Students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) may attend school in-person four days per week (Monday – Thursday) with Fridays continuing to be scheduled as an asynchronous learning day.

Additional Information by Grade Level

While this is our plan at this time, the evolving nature of this health crisis will require us to remain flexible as we plan for the start of the school year and beyond. 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.
