Welcome Back!


Dear Bluedevils,


I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy! I know these have been very trying times for all of us and it is so important for our students to get back to a sense of normalcy. We understand that our schools are critical to the social and emotional health of our students as well as the continuity of our community. 


With that in mind, I am writing this letter with the anticipation and hope that our students can start the year in person at the high school. Although we want to start in person, the reality of COVID-19 may require us to start school with remote learning with our students attending school from home. However, even if we start in person there is a good chance that we will have to move to remote learning if the COVID-19 infection cases spike during the school year. Due to this reality, we have worked to develop engaging learning opportunities whether students are in person or learning remotely. In addition, we have created a rotating schedule (see attached) that will allow our students to socially distance in each classroom. This schedule splits our students into two separate groups, using our school colors to name each group.  Half of our students will be assigned to the blue group (A-L), and half of our students will be assigned to the white group (M-Z). Only one student group, blue or white, will attend in-person, at the school each day. This allows students to socially distance within the classroom and at lunch. The student group that is not learning in person, at the school, will still be able to access the learning from home. For example; on our first day of school on August 17th, the blue group (A-L) will attend in-person learning, at the school, while the white group (M-Z) will be learning remotely at home. This rotation will allow students in the blue and white group to meet in person five times and learn remotely five times every two weeks.  


Our Freshman class will start the year off with Freshman orientation on August 14th. They, like all the grades, will be divided into two student groups either blue or white. The blue student (A-L) group will meet at FLHS at 7:30 am and will be done at 10:30 am. The white group (M-Z) will arrive at school at 11:30 and will finish the day at 2:30 pm.


COVID-19 Safety

We are taking the COVID-19 virus very seriously and we have put in numerous health and safety precautions and procedures in place to keep both staff and students safe throughout the year. 

 

We have enclosed your student’s summary sheet contact information with the current household information we have on file and their fee billing summary paperwork along with other necessary forms needed. Please look over these forms and make any necessary changes and sign them.   All completed forms need to be returned to the high school along with student fees.  The high school office will be open beginning the week of August 3rd.  We will have a drop box in the main office atrium where you may return those forms in person.  Any questions, please feel free to call (303)857-7100.



We are so excited to reconnect with our Bluedevil family!
