Hello Evans Families!
As you know, we will be starting the year with E-Learning. Your student's teacher will reach out to you this week with more information and we're here to help you all along the way. You can expect an invitation to our Virtual Open House, as well as a chance to sign up for your child's beginning of year assessments this week.
We have prepared a robust E-Learning experience for your student. Teachers will be in building every day to enhance their instruction with the collaboration of their teams, including interventionists, special education staff, and coaches. In addition to live teaching sessions, you and your student will have access to your teacher's daily office hours if you would like one-on-one assistance with content or navigation of the online platform.
We will also be inviting students in for small group instruction and interventions during E-Learning. After the beginning of year assessments, we'll coordinate with families to ensure that we have an appropriate limit of students in building at one time.
On September 8, we look forward to having our kindergartners, 1st and 2nd graders back in building! And on September 14, we'll welcome ALL students back at Evans! We can't wait to see you all soon!
As always, reach out if you have questions or concerns. :)
Hello Evans Community!
We are back to school and preparing the best learning experience for your students. During this dynamic situation, we've been practicing flexibility and agility as we closely monitor the emerging guidance from the Colorado Department of Education, El Paso County Health Dept, and District 49.
For students who will be in the building in August, we've arranged for additional and thorough cleaning protocols within classrooms and shared spaces. We'll have an extra custodian on staff to help us with the new sanitation measures buildingwide. We'll also keep students in cohorts of about 25 to minimize contact among our population. Lunch and recess procedures have been modified to comply with the cohort recommendations.
We will also provide eLearning instruction for those families who prefer to keep their children home. We are building an online platform and curriculum that will provide consistency and ease of use for parents and guardians who are assisting their online learners and our instructors will be available daily for virtual conferencing and support.
If you haven't confirmed your plans yet, please take this survey so that we can continue to plan accordingly. If you need more information about your options, please call us at (719) 495-5299.
Check back often for new updates and COVID season-related information. We're looking forward to serving our Evans families this year!
