Greetings Five Star Families and Staff,

Today, Wednesday, April 1, the Governor announced the extension of a previously enacted mandatory state-wide school closure through Thursday, April 30.

While nothing can replace the immense value of in-person education, our remote learning plan is designed to be adaptable and we’re prepared to extend remote learning as long as necessary, including through April 30

The Governor mentioned today and on previous occasions that it is very unlikely schools will reopen for in-person learning this school year. We are discussing this possibility with key stakeholders including our Adams 12 Five Star Schools Board of Education, the Colorado Department of Education, other educational organizations and public health experts. We will continue to update you as decisions are made.

Update on High School Events (prom, graduation, testing, events)

High school families will receive a separate communication shortly regarding the status of end-of-the-year activities including prom, graduation, spring testing and other co-curricular events. 

Device Distribution

If you are in need of a student device to support remote learning, please visit your attendance boundary high school between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, Thursday, April 2 to pick up a device. This will be the final planned day of general device distribution.

Staying Connected

We encourage you to continue to visit www.adams12.org/COVID19-Updates for information to support families in this remote learning journey as well as resources such as our grab and go meal service.

We realize the past month has, at least temporarily, changed the way all of us approach our daily lives. As we now look ahead to the continuation of this new reality, our goal remains the same - to support students and parents. 

We thank you for your continued patience as we continue this work together.
