jeffco RESTART Plan: what you need to know

THE BASICS

  • In-Person Learning: 100% in-person learning, five days a week, grades PreK - 12.

  • Remote Learning: Families have the option of remote learning, grades PreK - 12.

  • Cohorts: Students will be grouped in cohorts during in-person learning.

  • Food & Nutrition: Meal service program available with a combination of in-school serving and a “grab & go” program. Students will eat in their classrooms or other designated areas to support social distancing.

  • Transportation: Bus transportation will be available for eligible students with new protocols including face coverings and reduced capacity of riders.

  • Visitors: Volunteers, visitors, or non-employees will not be allowed to enter the building during the school day.

  • Choice and Electives: Guidelines to promote safe participation within all choice and elective programs including Visual Arts, Music, Choir, Band, Orchestra, PE, and Theatre will be communicated before the start of school.

  • School Schedules: Schools will be developing their building schedules and logistical plans for pick up/drop off, symptom screening, building entry, transitions throughout the school day, lunch/recess schedules, etc. and will communicate these details to families before students arrive in August.

  • Code of Conduct: Students enrolling for in-person learning are expected to adhere to all public health guidelines, protocols, and procedures; attendance at school will serve as agreement to these terms.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

As staff and students return to the classroom, important safety protocols will be in place to limit exposure and transmission of COVID-19. Among them:
  • 6' social distancing will be practiced to the fullest level possible.

  • Staff and student face coverings are required when social distancing cannot be maintained with consideration for exceptions, if necessary, for the health and wellness of certain students or staff.

  • Symptom screening.

  • Student grouping limitations wherever possible.

  • Regular hand washing.

  • Shared items and school materials will be reduced.

  • Increased building ventilation and fresh air mixture to the greatest extent possible.

  • Use of common spaces - cafeteria, gymnasium, auditoriums - is prohibited for large and mixed-group use.

  • Enhanced cleaning and decontamination of buildings and buses.

If a virus outbreak requires the closure of the district, individual schools, or affects specific groups of students, we will be ready to serve students in a remote environment as outlined in our Remote Learning Plan | Español.

NEXT STEPS

FOR FAMILIES:

Read the Restart Plan or the Executive Summary. After reviewing the plan, please complete this Family Learning Model Preference Form for each student who will attend Jeffco Public Schools during the 2020/21 school year. This form will help your school determine scheduling and resources as well as transportation options for eligible riders. Please complete the form and submit by Wednesday, July 22. It will remain open until the start of school and a family can change their choice. Likewise, families/students will be able to change from remote to in-person or vice versa at certain intervals after the start of the school year.

FOR STUDENTS Grades 5-12:

After reviewing the plan, please complete this Student Input Survey to provide your feedback. We are interested to learn what our students think about the Restart Plan.
