District 6 Headlines
This week, we made the difficult decision to switch to remote learning for two of our elementary schools: Madison and Billie Martinez. I wanted to update you on this decision, provide you some important information and resources, and give you some guidance how you can help us keep schools open. I urge you to read this entire communication. It is important.
Residents of Greeley-Evans School District 6 are invited to submit their suggestions for naming the new preschool-eighth grades school that will be constructed in West Greeley and open in Fall of 2022. The new school will be located near Boomerang Golf Course off 71st Avenue, between 4th and 10th Street. This is the first new school to be constructed in Greeley-Evans School District 6 - that isn’t replacing an existing school - since 2003, and the first time additional classrooms have been added to the district in 20 years.
Thank you for helping us have a successful first week of school and for continuing to trust us to serve your children's learning needs. While most of your children are coming to school in-person, we also know that some of you have chosen to have your children attend school through our online option. We are excited to have students in online or in-person school, and we want to thank you for partnering with us to get our students back to learning. We know there have been glitches for some families, but we will continue to work through those with you. This letter contains important information for families who are accessing both in-person and online learning. Please make sure you read the sections of this letter with information pertaining to your child(ren).
Welcome back District 6! We are thrilled to have you back for the 2020-2021 school year! If this year's journey begins within one of our school campuses or if it is through remote learning, we are excited to continue to engage, inspire, and making this school year THE BEST! Although it might look a bit different, we hope through safe learning we are able to continue to make you proud! We wish you the best for a successful and rewarding school year!
