Important Update: Remote Learning Plan
March 27, 2020
Dear District 6 Families and Students,
Thank you for your patience during this national health emergency. This virus has changed the way all of us work and live. Governor Polis has released an Executive Order stating in-person instruction for students in grades K-12 is suspended through April 17, 2020. If this order is extended, we will communicate additional information at that time. We will continue to work as quickly as possible to get you important information.
On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, Governor Polis also issued an Executive Stay-at-Home Order. We are an essential service, so we will continue to provide food and educational services during this crisis.
District 6 will have online and virtual, distance learning for students in grades K-12 beginning on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Your child’s education remains a priority for us during this time away from the brick and mortar school. The virtual, distance learning coursework is aligned with the Colorado State Standards and will be delivered by Greeley-Evans District 6 instructional staff. Someone from your school will be reaching out to you and your student directly before the online learning begins.
While virtual materials cannot take the place of a child’s classroom teacher or teachers, it is important for students to continue learning and have some sense of normalcy during this time. Virtual learning is different, but it is still school and the expectations for learning are the same as they were when your children attended school every day.
- Attendance will be taken.
- Students will meet with their teachers virtually or on the phone and instruction will occur.
- Students will also be given work to do on their own.
- Special Education Services will be provided.
- Additional resources for art, physical education and music will be available to all students.
- The learning plan will include resources to help answer your questions and support your children’s learning.
If your student is still in need of a Chromebook to do school work, please email your principal directly. If you are having issues connecting to the internet, Comcast is offering access to its hotspots throughout our communities. Visit www.corporate.comcast.com/covid-19 for information on how to access the internet. Students may also be able to access the District 6 public WiFi in the parking lot at some school sites.
We know this is a challenging time for everyone. During this rapidly evolving situation, information and circumstances will continue to change. We will provide updates as necessary. Please continue to follow our Facebook page and get information on our website at www.greeleyschools.org. Here is a personal message from Superintendent Dr. Deidre Pilch.
We sincerely appreciate you supporting your students in their learning. Thank you for your patience as we work through this together. We are working very hard to support your children’s learning during this uncertain time. We are District 6!
