Lea este artículo en español

We had an incredible response to our first day of Grab ‘N Go meal service today, Tuesday March 17 with more than 3,000 meals served.

We encourage families to continue to take advantage of this opportunity as meals will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for all children, ages 1 to 18, at our five comprehensive high school sites on weekdays through our extended Spring Break of Friday, March 27.

We want to let you know of an important change to the meal schedule for this week. With the potential for significant snowfall this Thursday, we will not offer meal service on this day.

Instead, families who visit a Grab ‘N Go site on Wednesday, March 18, will receive breakfast and lunch meals for Wednesday, March 18 as well as Thursday, March 19.

Please visit www.adams12.org/ExtendedBreak-Meals for any additional information on meal service.

Updates from Colorado Department of Education

Today, Tuesday, March 17, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) announced a pause on the administration of end-of-the-year assessments, including the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS), for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year due to extensive school closures throughout Colorado to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

CDE also indicated they are working with The College Board to generate possible solutions for the administration of the PSAT and SAT tests, which offer unique roles in Colorado’s system in terms of scholarships and college entrance. Additional information will come from CDE as it becomes available.

You can read more about CDE’s update on testing in their press release

Update on Resumption of School

We will continue to follow guidance from the state on the potential extension of our current extended Spring Break and will provide updates as they become available.

Communicating With You

Our goal as we move forward is to communicate with our school district community when there are important updates to share but to not overwhelm you with information.

We will generally share messages with you via text or email when:

  • There is a significant update from our state or federal government in regards to the spread of this virus or recommended response

  • New information regarding the scheduled resumption of school

  • The addition of new resources from the district to support families during this time

For up-to-date information from the district, visit www.adams12.org/COVID19-Updates. We will also share links to important updates via our Facebook and Twitter social media accounts.

Thank you for working with us in our community’s collective response to COVID-19.
