Jeffco Public Schools
Today, the Jeffco Public Schools Board of Education had a study session with district leadership about the any future modifications to the learning models currently in place. There was no decision made during this study session but a press release this evening indicated there is likely to be a decision announced by end of day tomorrow, November 12th.
The school district did explain that they have had to close multiple facilities for 24-48 hour periods in order to disinfect areas. In addition, there are currently 14 schools in the district which are in full remote learning mode because of “multiple positive cases”.
We asked for a clarification on team sports and allowing schools to continue to compete against each other based on Jefferson County moving to Level Orange. The district provided the following response ‘This level change does not affect football, which is the only athletic activity we have going right now - they will continue to play. There are no spectators allowed however; we haven't had any spectators since Oct. 29.”
