All Grades are attending in-person learning four days a week.
HELP KEEP COVID-19 OUT OF OUR SCHOOL
ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A COMPLETED COVID SCREENING BEFORE ENTERING
IF YOU ANSWER YES TO ANY SCREENING QUESTIONS
DO NOT ENTER
Each class will be kept separate from other classes of students during the school day (They will have their own bathrooms, their own separate recess and separate lunch areas within the cafeteria or other spaces).
Students will be asked to wear masks but can remove them when eating or when outdoors. Students will also be asked to wash hands frequently.
The number of staff that can be with groups of students will be limited.
Parents must do a screening form prior to the student arriving at school. Forms are in Infinite Campus and are available hard copy. Any student who arrives without a submitted screening will be screened and a call home will be made to arrange for screenings to happen prior to the student arriving at school in the future.
Here is the district website with Reintroduction Plan information:
Dear Wonderful Whittier families,
Welcome back to the 2020-21 school year! This year will be a year like no other but I am confident in our amazing community of families and staff to make the most of it. I know there are many, many questions out there so here is a link to FAQs that I am hearing so far and that I will continue to add to including notes from my Google Meets for parents.
Technology support: Our IT Service desk is available and now has bilingual support if you have any issues with your device and setup or are in need of repairs. You can contact them at 720-561-HELP or at IT@bvsd.org.
Please do not hesitate to call the main office if you need anything at 720-561-5431. Also, Alexis Batko, our FRS Coordinator, is back to support families with any financial or other needs and she can be reached at 720-561-2422 after August 10th. We hope that together we can remain focused on our IB vision: as civically-engaged community members, we can all improve our world through intercultural understanding and respect.
Hug N Go volunteers are needed to manage traffic in our drop-off and pick-up lane as well as to do crossing guard duty. It will be a bit different than years past as we will not physically open car doors. Instead, volunteers will be present to ensure people pull forward in the lane and that no one parks. We ask people to sign up for one morning (7:50-8:05am) or afternoon (2:35-3:00pm) per week. Here is a link to sign up if you can help: https://bvsd.helpatschools.com/schools/19/events/7063
Workshops will be offered during the following dates and times:
Wednesday October 21, 2020: 7:30 - 9 pm

If there are any issues with the zoom link, please reach out to Nadia directly at email@example.com.
Tonight, during a special meeting of the Board of Education, we updated our reintroduction plans. All students will now have the opportunity to return to in-person learning before the end of this month
