Greetings SLHS Families,

I hope that this message finds you and your families well. As you have heard, Jeffco Public Schools has made the decision for our high schools and middle schools to transition to 100% Remote Learning, effective Monday, November 16th. The RESTART JEFFCO plans can be found HERE.

While we can all agree that in-person learning is best for our students, the current state of the pandemic dictates that the safety of our students and community is the priority. We have prepared for this possibility and SLHS is ready to make this move. We began the school year in a 100% Remote Learning Environment and have learned so much from the spring as well. With the hybrid model, we have been using the remote learning model all semester in one way or another. I am also confident that, when needed, we will transition back into this in-person learning environment seamlessly.

In preparation for this change, I’ve included a LINK here to our Remote Learning Plan. This semester we intentionally developed a schedule that would allow us to move between learning models with the least possible disruption to our students. Due to these early efforts, no adjustment to our current bell schedule will be necessary. Following the daily bell schedule, students will login and attend their classes synchronously (Monday – Thursday) and on Fridays- asynchronously. All SLHS students should login to their odd numbered classes on Monday, November 16th and Tuesday November 17th. For example, if I have a 3rd block class, I will login and attend class on both Monday and Tuesday. I will interact with my teacher and classmates both days online. I will also login and attend my even numbered classes online on both Wednesday and Thursday. Please email your teacher with any questions about class logins or expectations.

Attendance will still be taken daily. Teachers will continue to mark attendance for each period. Please call the attendance line (303-982-3300) if your student will be absent. Please continue to communicate with us via the attendance line any illnesses or if you or your student are exposed to COVID-19, or are getting tested.

I would also like to remind all families to complete the Spring Semester Learning Choice Survey, and let us know whether you would like to join the Remote Only learning model OR Hybrid learning. We will need your choice in anticipation of having both options available in January.

As we near the end of our first semester, I know that no matter what learning model we utilize, our staff will work incredibly hard to provide students with the support they need. If you find your student(s) is struggling for any reason, please reach out to their counselor or grade level administrator.

We’re in this together!
