I hope you are well and enjoying the fabulous weather this week.  In this message, I will be sharing several pieces of information, but most importantly the plans we are developing for the reopening of school next month.  Details are spelled out in the attached document, which is available in both Spanish and English.  Please realize that this will always be a work in progress as we receive further guidance, more input, and learn along the way. 

In order to help us best plan for opening school, we ask that all parents fill out a survey with your preferences and needs.  It is important that we get as many responses as possible, so please make every effort to complete this and share with other parents you know.  That survey can be found at: 

We received notice today from the Telluride Film Fest that they are no longer requesting to use our school facilities for the festival.  We know that many of you were concerned about the TFF staff and patrons in our schools impacting the health and safety of our school community.

I want to acknowledge on behalf of the administrative team that many of you have expressed legitimate concerns, that we hear you, and are doing everything we can to address them.  I sincerely hope the information provided today goes a long way to address your concerns, but I know it will not make all the issues go away.  We know it will take a concerted effort by everyone involved to get through this and keep our students, staff, and community safe.  For our part, we will continue to do everything we can within our schools.  Do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time.  This is uncharted territory, and we will get through it together.
