Dear U Prep Families,
Following Tuesday’s announcement by Denver Public Schools we wanted to provide you with an update from U Prep and our decision making tied to in-person schooling.
U Prep will continue to offer an In-Person and Remote option for all scholars in K-5th grade. If you are currently a family sending your child to in-person school across any of our grade levels please continue to do so next week and up until the Thanksgiving holiday break. We will continue to offer both fully In-Person and fully remote learning unless one of the following 3 scenarios occurs:
In the event that any one of these situations were to occur we will communicate with you directly in a timely fashion.
While we continue to see an up-tick in cases of COVID-19 in the Denver area, the clear message coming from local health officials is that schools are not the source of the problem in Denver. They remain incredibly safe spaces for children and adults as a result of all the health and safety guardrails that are in place.
Further, we continue to learn that elementary aged students:
Our decision to remain open for those families who choose to send their children to school is directly tied to the data and science tied to the recommendations of our local health officials. Ultimately, we believe you should have this choice so long as health officials believe it is safe for our doors to remain open.
As we proceed forward with the school year, there are a few additional decisions we want to be sure you are aware of as they relate to your experience from now through 3rd quarter.
We understand that the stress and anxiety created by this ever-changing environment that is school in 2020-21 can be challenging. We are working diligently to make sure that despite the difficulties involved, our scholars continue to receive the highest quality education that we can provide. And, we can’t thank you enough for your consistent engagement and effort as a partner in that high quality education.
We continue to implement all the necessary health and safety guardrails to keep your scholars, your family and our staff as safe as possible, and will always keep you updated as any new information arises.
With eternal gratitude,
