Return to In-Person Learning Plan

Grades K-5


In-Person learning
5 days per week

Grades 6-12


In-person learning in Hybrid model
100% Remote Learning option will continue through the school year


updated 1.15.2021


Interim Superintendent Kristopher Schuh, in consultation with the Jefferson County Board of Education, public health, district leadership, and school leadership, has made the decision to return middle school and high school students (grades 6-12) to in-person instruction in a Hybrid model beginning Monday, January 25. A number of factors influenced the decision including current county-level COVID-19 case data, a strong desire of both students and families to return to in-person learning, a larger pool of guest teachers (substitutes) which can improve our ability to sustain operations while responding to virus spread and quarantines, and the improved availability of COVID-19 testing.

Other Key Information 

  • Food Services: The district will continue to provide free meals to all students (PreK-12) through the end of the 2020-21 school year.
    In-Person, Hybrid and Remote Learning Meal Service

  • Transportation Services: The district is adapting ridership plans to align with the return to in-person learning at the various grade levels and programs. More information coming soon.

  • Athletics & Activities: Jeffco Public Schools follows Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) and local and state public health guidance. Information about practice schedules and activities coming soon and you can always review the CHSAA website for more information.
