The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont.

Physics students at Skyline High School exercised their creative flair with the introduction of paper circuits and pop-up electric circuit cards to classes this semester while learning about electricity. Students designed their own pop-up card and then created an electric circuit to be placed inside the card. The circuit included an LED, copper tape, and coin cell battery. Once the projects were completed and students had successfully troubleshot their designs, they were then required to reflect on the project and explain the physics behind how the card and circuit worked.
Excerpts from student reflections best demonstrate the learning goals of the project:
“The circuit I created used a conductive copper tape to transfer the stored energy of the battery into a small LED when a switch was activated, thus connecting and completing the circuit.” - Nicholas King
’“An LED is a light-emitting diode, it permits current to flow in only one direction. Incandescent lights use more watts, cost more, and emit more carbon dioxide than an LED.” - Priscilla Aguirre Jimenez
Some students took advantage of the personalized projects by creating a greeting card for friends or family.
This project was made possible by a Race To The Top grant from the Department of Education.
