SAGUACHE — Following a family and staff survey, Mountain Valley School board approved a plan last week to resume in-person learning with social distancing and recommended preventative measures in place.
The full text of the plan can be viewed at https://drive.google.com/file/d/18I0SXSJgl69-asYEiW-04zTrX48ur7AY/view. Parents will have the choice of in-person or online learning opportunities for their children.
Registration for the 2020-2021 school year can be completed online using our student information system — PowerSchool. A link to registration will be provided on the school web page and posted on the school Facebook page.
New registrants and current families can easily create an account and update important information such as phone numbers and emergency contacts. Registration opens Thursday, Aug. 6.
Mountain Valley School staff will also be available to help those who need support completing registration forms over the phone by calling the school at 719-655-2578.
During registration, parents will select either an in-person or online option. Both options will follow the district-adopted calendar to the greatest extent possible. A school calendar can be found on our MVSD web page. An in-person registration day will not be offered this year.
The plan features a 100 percent Online and Free Option taught by MVSD teachers and/or Colorado Digital Learning Solutions (CDLS). All students will receive a district-issued Chromebook. Remote learning for all students will resume in the event of cohort dismissal or school closure.
The internet will be installed for students that need connectivity at home. Instruction through virtual class meetings and online content will be delivered to students daily. Attendance will be taken.
Mountain Valley School will follow state mandates, guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), and guidance from the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). COVID-19 guidance changes frequently as data becomes available.
Back-to-school interviews to replace back-to-school night are available.
