Dear Thornton Fractional District 215 Staff, Students, and Families,
At last night’s meeting, the Board of Education, with my recommendation, voted for our district to remain in a remote-only learning setting for the second quarter of the 2020-21 school year. While this news comes as a welcome relief for some, I realize that for others it is a disappointment. The struggles that our staff, students, and families are confronting daily in the face of this pandemic and all the ways it has changed our lives are substantial. Our top consideration in the decision to remain remote for the second quarter is the safety of our more than 3,000 students and several hundred staff members.
Please know that we are working tirelessly to continue to improve the remote learning environment for staff, students, and families. Here are a few announcements/reminders:
