High School Students

Updated September 22, 2020


Return to Hybrid In-Person Learning

  • High 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 Tuesdays.
  • Group 2 will attend in-person school on Wedesdays and Thursdays.
  • Students with disabilities with 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.
  • Synchronous learning schedules will likely change to accommodate specials, lunch, and recess. Teachers will communicate with families changes to the synchronous schedule.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • High 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.
  • All 9th graders will be asked to remain on campus during lunch and use proper social distancing procedures. Any other student remaining on campus for lunch should observe the same procedures. With parent permission, 10th - 12th graders, may leave campus during their lunch period.
  • 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.
