Quarter 3 Calendar Update

Quarter 3 Calendar Update
February 11, 2021 GWHS

Dear GW Families – 

Thank you for your patience as we finalized the Quarter 3 calendar. With the move to hybrid learning, we had to adjust our schedule to accommodate school holidays. Below we have detailed the school calendar through the end of Q3 on March 11. 

There will be additional schedule adjustments over the next few weeks to accomodate teacher and staff vaccinations. DPS has partnered with Children’s Hospital Colorado to vaccinate staff members. With a focus on equity and highest need, DPS has established a priority order that is based on the percentage of a school’s enrollment that qualifies for free or reduced-price meals (FRL). The vaccination schedule will be ordered based on FRL enrollment, starting with the highest-percentage schools. At this time we do not know when GW will be scheduled to receive our COVID-19 vaccinations. 

We do know that the days our school is scheduled to have our staff vaccinated will become asynchronous-learning days for students and a remote-work day for staff when they are not receiving their vaccine. As soon as we know these dates we will share them with our community. 

Thank you, 
Kristin Waters, Ph.D.
