Given the current situation with COVID-19 here in Boulder and Broomfield counties, our local public health agencies feel that it is possible to open schools, as long as students are kept in small consistent socially-distanced groups. As a result, we are planning to start the school year a week later than planned in Phase 3, unless the situation worsens significantly.
We are excited to offer in person ceremonies, during which schools will have some ability to incorporate their individual traditions.
Over the past couple weeks, several Colorado school districts have announced their plans to return to full in-person instruction this fall. We expect several more to do the same over the next couple of weeks.
Our hope – above all hopes – is that students in BVSD have the opportunity to do the same.
