Dear Adams 14 Parents, Families, and Staff Members,
Over the last fourteen days, Adams County as a whole has experienced an increase of new reported COVID-19 cases of 357%.
In recognition of both the need to ensure continuity of student learning and quell current county-wide transmission trends, all Adams 14 schools will operate virtually for the entirety of the week of January 10-14.
Students should prepare for virtual instruction by bringing any necessary instructional materials home. Families experiencing issues related to technology or connectivity should contact their schools directly or the district’s Technology department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meals will be provided to students for the entirety of the week.
On Monday, January 10th, meals will be served between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on each school site. (Sanville students will be served at Central Elementary School, and STARS students will be served at Rose Hill Elementary School.)
Beginning on Tuesday, January 11th, meals will be delivered to neighborhood locations. More information on pick-up locations and times will be sent directly to families in advance.
Each school’s normal start and end times will remain in effect during this period of virtual instruction.
Middle and high school students will be expected to attend and participate in all scheduled synchronous classes in their entirety.
Elementary school students will be expected to attend and participate in scheduled morning synchronous sessions in their entirety, followed by afternoon asynchronous sessions.
All middle school sports activities will be canceled for the entirety of the week of January 10-14. High school sports activities will continue as normally scheduled. School administrators and coaches will communicate directly with students and families with updates related to logistics and transportation.
Grounds, maintenance, building engineers, transportation, IT, and food service personnel need to report to work during their regularly scheduled hours. All remaining school-based personnel should confirm their preferred operating location (either remote or on-site) with their principal prior to their departure from campuses on Friday, January 7th. Each campus will be staffed with at least one administrator on-site on a daily basis.
All Adams 14 students, families, and staff will be notified by Thursday, January 13th of any decisions related to virtual or in-person instruction beyond the week.
