Compass 20-21 Restart Plan Parent Communication
Friday, July 31, 2020
Dear Compass Community members,
Over the last several weeks, our school’s administration has created a plan that balances student and staff health with the need to return to school. We have developed a learning atmosphere that encourages our students to flourish and exceeds safety guidelines. This plan was guided by listening not only to parents, teachers, and support staff, but also by consulting with local, state, and national experts while maintaining alignment with Jefferson County Public Schools. We developed this plan, knowing it may be necessary to adjust to ever-changing circumstances concerning COVID-19. Compass’s K-12 programming will continue to align with Jeffco schools as restart plans shift.
Safety will always be Compass Montessori’s top priority for our entire community, including students, parents, staff, and the broader community. We will follow all directives given by Jefferson County Public Schools, Jefferson County Public Health Department, Colorado Department of Education, Colorado Department of Human Services, Center for Disease Control, and the Governor. All of our policies and procedures are up-to-date with current state and national public health guidelines, and our plans may change if guidelines or orders are adjusted.
Providing quality education, including taking care of the whole child, is also our priority. Our decisions have been made with careful consideration for all students and staff as we move forward with this school year. Compass’s mission and vision have not changed, but how we’re going to implement it this year has. Please read through this information carefully to help guide you in your decision-making process. This document will serve as an addendum to the Family/Student Handbook for the 2020-2021 school year.
We will hold a town hall meeting next Thursday, August 6th, 2020. Please be sure to read through your child’s specific level restart plan. Here is the Zoom link and meeting ID: 919 4806 2190. Each level will be discussed at the following times:
