In-person instruction update 4/21/2020

Official notice from Superintendent Moore: It is with great sadness that I announce all Huerfano RE-1 schools will be closed for in person instruction the remainder of the school year (through our last day of May 22nd) as stipulated by Governor Polis late Monday evening.
I know everybody entertained the hope that we could possibly resume normal instruction, events and activities in May. These items will not occur, unfortunately.
There are still many school related items that will need to be discussed and acted upon of which many depend on the status of the Corona virus and regulations put in place by the Huerfano and Las Animas Health department.
Parents and students, remote learning will continue through May 22, 2020. I ask that you please finish strong and make every effort to do the best that you can.
We do have plans for an alternate format of graduation on May 22nd that will be held downtown at the intersection of 5th and Main similar to a homecoming parade with recognition of each graduate. A 2nd, more traditional graduation with very limited number of guests along with extensive social distancing will be held on June 13th at the football field complex if allowed to do so by our health department at that time. The specifics of our nontraditional and traditional graduation ceremonies will be released in due time.
I want to thank everyone for being patient, understanding and thinking safety first for all our community.
Thank you,
Mike Moore
