We're Getting Ready to Go Back to School!


A Message from the Head of School About Fall Reopening Plans

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying summer break. Although campus appears quiet now, administrators, teachers and advisors from the Board of Trustees and Kent Denver’s Medical Advisory Board are hard at work developing our reopening plan for the fall.

It’s clear from your feedback that students, teachers and parents miss on-campus interaction; however, we intend to plan for all known contingencies going forward.

We are optimistic we will be able to offer face-to face-instruction, but only by making some significant changes to how we keep each other safe and healthy.

Your Role in the Process

Last month, students completed a survey asking for their preference for on-campus or online school if there is neither a vaccine nor increased therapeutics by August, but Kent Denver is taking appropriate safety measures.

On July 6, parents and guardians will receive a survey that asks for their first choice of whether their children return to campus or participate in online classes in the fall. Completing this survey is required.

While the situation could change between July and August, we need input from every family to decide which options are feasible.

Please check your email for a link to the survey on July 6 and complete the survey no later than 5 p.m. on July 8. Thank you, in advance, for your time in this important effort.

Reopening Plan Timeline

As we look toward fall, our primary goal is to offer on-campus instruction that adheres to safety guidelines and recommendations and offer online classes, if they are needed, desired and feasible. We are also hiring a full-time school nurse to manage our school’s medical plan.

We will share more details about our fall reopening plans on July 6 to help make choosing whether students return to campus or participate in online classes in the fall easier. By July 12, we will announce if online school will be offered on a regular (non-emergency) basis, and by August 3, students will receive their class schedules for the fall.

Safeguarding our community’s health is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding and support of the efforts we are undertaking in this area and for your confidence in our school.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Best,

Rand Harrington
Head of School
