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. El Centro de Recursos Comunitario de autoservicio estará abierto los miercoles de 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. durante los meses de junio y julio.

"How does a computer work on the inside?" "Why does my foot fall asleep?" "I want to know more about cancer because my mom has it." "How do you knit?" "I want to know more about sharks."
These are just some of the questions and topics generated by students' Genius Hour projects. Students from 1st-5th grade are choosing topics of their own research, but also their own methods of "presentation." A second grader chose to learn about a technology tool, "Blendspace," and as her final presentation she taught a first grade class some pointers on how to use the tool. A fourth grader has always been interested in how computers work, and now, with the help of a donation from the Innovation Center, has been able to take apart and analyze components of a desktop machine. Another group in fourth grade had similar interests in architecture. The group of three girls will research famous structures and build a replica scale model for demonstration.
With so many different topics throughout even one class, teachers find ways to organize and structure the experience for students. Several teachers have online organizational Google Docs to record conferencing conversations, while others have paper and pencil techniques. Students are monitoring their own progress, too, with reflection through Schoology's online environment, or digital portfolios like Blendspace.
