School Opening Information
The School Board amended version 2020.4 of the reopening plan. The main change has to do with the mask requirement for K-4. The plan now reads, "for K-4 masks are required in indoor common areas defined as the hallway, art room, and library and will be encouraged in the classroom."
Below is the Reopening Plan at a glance. Click HERE to see the full Version 2020.5 of the plan.
*Masks are also required for preschool students aged 3 and up in all areas of Prime Time Early Learning Center and the district preschool. For K-4 masks are required in indoor common areas defined as the hallway, art room, and library and will be encouraged in the classroom.
**Self checks are encouraged prior to your child leaving home. In the event a child has a 100.4 degree temperature, presents with a cough or difficulty breathing they should stay home (or will be sent home). NPS is partnering with COVIDCheck Colorado to provide families with a self-screening app. This has not been finalized so NPS asks that families use the “Can I go to school today?” at-home symptom screener provided by CDPHE.
***Social distancing metrics vary by age group
****Only essential visitors will be allowed inside campus buildings after a temperature screening and complying with the mask order . Visitors who need to drop something off are encouraged to do so at the front door.
