Free Student COVID Testing with CCC Partnership
DPS is pleased to announce it is expanding its partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado to offer free COVID-19 testing for students to support a safe return to school. All students and staff will now be able to take a baseline COVID-19 test before coming back to school, and then DPS will be able to offer an ongoing COVID-19 student screening test every other week. As shared with charters through an earlier email from Portfolio, this information will be shared with families through this PSA video, via School Messenger. Thanks to the CDPHE partnership, testing for charter students will be free, and charters will not have to pay for staff testing through March (charges will resume after March). 

Baseline testing can be completed at any of COVIDCheck Colorado’s testing sites via this link (students and staff must use their DPS ID). DPS encourages everyone, unless you have tested positive in the last 90 days, to take a baseline test in the new year. The tests are free, fast, and reliable. See an updated list of testing sites here including at the Montbello campus, Abraham Lincoln Campus, North HS Campus, All City Stadium and a new site at George Washington HS. The test will be completed via nasal PCR test or SalivaDirect™, and results will be returned within 36-72 hours.

At any time, your families and students can schedule a test at existing CCC sites. Any charter student or employee should use the district link, while family members can continue to use the community link.

Good morning,  

I hope this note finds you and your family well during these challenging times.  We thank you for your support and tenacity in helping our students learn in these extraordinary circumstances.  

One of the challenges that we have heard from many of you and our staff is that the uncertainty around how school will look creates added stress.  We want to do everything we can to mitigate additional stress and give our educators, students and families as much time to plan as possible.  So, after looking at the ever-increasing cases in the Denver area we have decided to stay remote through Quarter 3, January 5-March 26.  We will decide about Quarter 4, April 5-May 28, in early to mid-March based on cases and guidance from DPS and the Health Departments.

All our educators are working incredibly hard to provide the most engaging and best online experience for our students.  If your student is having trouble connecting to this material please reach out to their Advocate who can help with technology, hot spots and other resources.   

We recognize these times have brought new challenges and if you and your family need help with food please let your student’s Advocate know. 

Thank you for your support

Buenos Dias,  

Esperamos que esta nota los encuentre bien a usted y a su familia durante estos tiempos difíciles. Le agradecemos su apoyo y tenacidad para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes a aprender en estas circunstancias extraordinarias.

Uno de los desafíos que hemos escuchado de muchos de ustedes y de nuestro personal es que la incertidumbre sobre cómo se verá la escuela crea estrés adicional.Queremos hacer todo lo posible para mitigar el estrés adicional y dar a nuestros educadores, estudiantes y familias el mayor tiempo posible para planificar. Entonces, después de observar los casos cada vez mayores en el área de Denver, hemos decidido permanecer alejados hasta el tercer trimestre, del 5 de Enero al 26 de Marzo. Decidiremos sobre el cuarto trimestre, del 5 de Abril al 28 de Mayo, de principios a mediados de Marzo, según los casos y la orientación del DPS y los departamentos de salud.

Todos nuestros educadores están trabajando arduamente para brindar la mejor y más atractiva experiencia en línea para nuestros estudiantes. Si su estudiante tiene problemas para conectarse a este material, comuníquese con su Representante Estudiantil, quien puede ayudarlo con tecnología, puntos de acceso y otros recursos.

Reconocemos que estos tiempos han traído nuevos desafíos y si usted y su familia necesitan ayuda con la comida, informe al Representante Estudiantil de su estudiante.

 

Gracias por tu apoyo,

July 30th, 2020 COVID-19 Update -

2020-21 School Year

Students and families, 

Over the summer we have been working closely with Denver Public Schools (DPS) and our local health experts to determine the safest way to open the 2020-21 school year.  In staying aligned with DPS, we have decided to delay the start of school until Monday, August 24th.  In addition, we have decided to conduct classes through remote (online) learning through Friday, October 9th.  This is a difficult decision but we believe it is in the best interest of our students, staff and families.  Our decision is based on the health and safety of our school communities.  We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and its impact on our school community with local health experts and DPS officials. 

Registration for returning families and applications for new families are currently available on-line. Emails were sent out to returning CHSC families with log-in and access information.  New families can apply here. If you are unable to log-in or need assistance please touch base with your advocate.  Their contact information is listed below.

Over the next few days, please expect to receive a phone call from your student’s advocate if you are a returning student.  This call is meant as a wellness check-in for you and your family.  If you would like to volunteer, donate or receive food assistance please let your student's advocate know. Please don't hesitate to reach out with your questions or suggestions.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility,

Clark Callahan

Estimados estudiantes y familias,

 

         Quiero agradecerles a todos por comunicarse y brindarnos sus comentarios a través de nuestras encuestas electrónicas y telefónicas. En este momento, basado en la decisión de Escuelas Públicas de Denver (DPS) y las recomendaciones de expertos de salud, hemos tomado la decisión de continuar con aprendizaje remoto hasta al menos el 19 de Octubre, hasta el final del primer trimestre. Nosotros continuaremos trabajando duro para dar la bienvenida gradual y segura a nuestros estudiantes de nuevo en nuestro edificios, cuando las condiciones de salud lo permitan.

         Nuestra prioridad principal durante estos tiempos extraordinarios ha sido y será continuar garantizando la salud y el bienestar de nuestra comunidad. Hemos escuchado de muchos de ustedes que no se sienten seguros y sabemos que la pandemia esta impactando desproporcionadamente a las comunidades de color. Seguiremos trabajando estrechamente con DPS y organizaciones de salud locales para obtener la mejor información sobre cuándo podemos abrir nuestras puertas con seguridad una vez más.

          Sigue siendo extremadamente importante que se registre lo antes posible para asegure su asiento para el año escolar 2020-2021. Este registro también nos ayuda a asegurar financiación para nuestros representantes estudiantil y maestros que están haciendo un trabajo fenomenal en este momento para proporcionar una excelente instrucción y servicios. Utilice el siguiente enlace para acceder a nuestro registro en línea.  https://www.coloradohighschoolcharter.com/ Si desea obtener más información de su representante estudiantil, utilice la información de contacto que se detalla a continuación.

          Gracias por su apoyo continuo durante este período de incertidumbre. Por favor díganos cómo podemos mejor apoyar a usted y a su familia.

 

Gracias,
