Huerfano RE-1 Reopening of Schools Plan for 2020-2021

Huerfano RE-1 Reopening of Schools Plan for 2020-2021

Huerfano RE-1 Schools (Peakview pk-8 and John Mall HS) will begin school with online/remote instruction. Huerfano RE-1 will hope for a normal return to school on September 8, 2020 after further review and analysis of the Covid 19 virus levels in the state, county and in schools that returned to normal to start their school year. New student Chromebooks will be distributed when students return in small groups for online training on 8/17 or 8/18.

Huerfano RE-1 does not expect nor anticipate that students will spend 8 hours in front of their Chromebook. We will make every effort to provide exceptional lessons in a reduced amount of time. The starting and ending times of student classes will be determined by building level Principals. Lessons shall also be recorded for viewing at an alternate time.

Sack breakfast and lunches will be served in a similar drive-through manner as this past spring. Only Peakview and John Mall HS enrolled students are eligible for these sack breakfasts and lunches. Students will receive 2 days’ worth of meals during each pick-up. Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:30am-12:30pm

Huerfano RE-1 School District Re-opening of Schools Plan

Huerfano RE-1 School District Re-opening of Schools Plan

This plan is susceptible to change at a moment’s notice. These plans will also need to be approved by the Las Animas/Huerfano Health Department. We are currently waiting for a response by Friday afternoon. When I receive said response then we will either make recommended changes or go to another choice> remote learning until Labor Day or alternate a/b days. These are our intentions:

  1. School will open for full time in person instruction, meaning all students are expected to attend schools on August 13, 2020. If this option is not possible it is likely we would go to an all “remote learning” situation until Labor Day and reevaluate prior to that date.
  2. Parents/students will have the option to stay home and engage in remote learning provided by the school district. Students will engage in live lessons provided in the classroom via live video. Our intent is to provide as close to a classroom experience as possible with the live instruction. We have also purchased Schoology, a new, trusted, platform to deliver this and other lessons/work associated with the classroom experience.
  3. Schools will abide by the safety protocols as put forth by the local health department to include:
  4. Temperature scans for all personnel and students. These may be conducted prior to entry on a school method of transportation (bus or school vehicle
  5. Intermittent health checks during the school day
  6. Facemasks, preferably of the cloth type, or other material will be required for students and teachers to wear. The school district will provide masks to any student needing a mask. We understand that it will be difficult for many children to keep these on yet we need to make the effort to ask that they do, to the best of their ability and we need your help in doing so.
  7. Follow protocols to wash hands often and use hand sanitizer
  8. Attempt to follow social distancing protocols as best as possible
  9. Cleaning and wiping of surfaces by custodial personnel
  10. If allowed to go full time, busing will be normal and not limited to 10-12 students. If the full time plan is not allowed then expect busing changes to occur which could include some bus runs not being available.

This has been a very trying time to determine our best course of action and I understand and appreciate the fact that people will have differing opinions and may exercise the right to choose the “remote learning” option. We ask that you please inform school personnel of your choice during early registration which will occur soon of which you will be notified. Thank you. Let us all do the best that we can to provide a meaningful learning experience for all.

Important Information Regarding Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)

Dear Parents and Guardians.

You may have heard about a new program authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) called Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer or P-EBT for short. This program intends to provide financial assistance to families of children grades K-12 eligible for free or reduced-price school meals who have lost access to food due to the school closures caused by COVID-19. The financial assistance will be distributed to eligible families on new or existing Colorado EBT cards. The average P-EBT benefit is $5.70/child per day or up to $279 per eligible child, retroactive to when school initially closed. Huerfano School District Re-1 participates in the National School Lunch Program under the Community Eligible Provision, which provides free lunches to all students, meaning all Huerfano RE-1 students grades K-12 may be eligible for P-EBT.

If your family is already participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and possesses an EBT card, the P-EBT benefits will automatically be loaded onto your card within the month of June 2020. If your family is not currently enrolled in SNAP benefits, you must complete an application to receive P-EBT.

Receiving these benefits will not affect your immigration or public charge status. All families who are eligible for P-EBT may receive it, regardless of immigration status. P-EBT is a pandemic emergency benefit based on free or reduced-price school meal eligibility, and similar to other benefits that the Department Homeland Security has stated that it is excluded from consideration in public charge. Household information that is used to determine eligibility is protected under both federal and state data privacy practices.

To successfully complete the P-EBT application, you will need your child(ren)’s State Assigned Student ID (SASID) number

Upon approval, an EBT card with the qualifying amount will be mailed to you. To access the P-EBT application visit: https://www.colorado.gov/cdhs/p-ebt.

For more information about P-EBT, please visit Colorado Department of Human Services’ Frequently Asked Questions webpage – https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdhs/p-ebt . If you have further questions, please contact pebt2020@state.co.us and a representative will respond.

If you have other questions or need help, or are interested in applying for P-EBT, contact Tara Burke at tburke@huerfano.k12.co.us or 719-695-0095 to obtain the required SASID information.

Sincerely,

Huerfano School District RE-1
