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.

One of the most significant advantages to having a Race to the Top Grant from the Department of Education is that our students are able to experience and manipulate previously inaccessible technologies. Students in Kindergarten and 2nd Grade recently had opportunities to interact with robotics.
Kindergarteners have been learning about their bodies and describing the different ways we can move. To accompany this unit, students had a chance to interact with Sophie, a NAO Robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics. Sophie was programmed to help students compare and contrast our bodies and movements with those of a robot’s. Students followed along and copied Sophie as she identified and moved the different parts of her body. They were able to point out the similarities and differences, and even discussed how joints play an important part in the way our bodies move.
2nd Graders have been studying motion, simple machines, and three-dimensional shapes. To further their understanding and application of the concepts of motion, they had a chance to work with Spheros - small robotic spheres that are controlled by iPads. Students took turns driving the Sphero to investigate its motion, then completed small challenges that involved controlling and manipulating a Sphero to follow and turn along a line and maneuver around various obstacles. To be successful, they needed to apply what they knew about force and speed, as well as adequately communicate and collaborate with their group members.
These opportunities allow students to transfer what they are learning in class to engaging hands-on experiences that will solidify their learning and challenge them to take what they have learned beyond the classroom walls.
