Montclair Updates for March 19th – COVID-19

March 19th, 2020
Dear Montclair Parents,
By now many of you have received the updates from the district about the ongoing changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  As I write this from my house now watching the storm come in, I am hoping that all of you are safe, healthy, and warm.
Here is what we know today, March 19th:
  • On March 18th, Gov. Jared Polis issued and executive order that suspends in-person learning in all public and private schools across the state through April 17th. 
  • Each school in Denver Public Schools is developing a remote learning plan.  Remote learning will begin on April 7th.  
  • CMAS is cancelled for this spring.  
  • DPS continues to provide pickup locations for breakfast and lunch.  The locations closest to Montclair are Manual High School and Place Bridge Academy. https://www.dpsk12.org/coronavirus/#familyresources
What does this mean for Montclair families?
  • In the upcoming weeks, Montclair leadership will be in communication through Dojo, the Montclair App, and the Montclair website.  We have asked our teachers to use Dojo to communicate with their students and families.
  • Our amazing staff put together packets and online resources for families before we left last Friday to keep students engaged in learning during our extended spring break.  Here is the link to those resources:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jKmDuUYlwUwq7QHcDTK-N-5HgGVXvY_oilVt7JXZxz8/edit?usp=sharing.
  • In the next few days, you will receive a survey to ask about your families’ access to Internet and technology at home.  Please respond as this will help guide our remote learning plan.
  • Our team has begun work on our remote learning plan and we will have further details for families beginning next week.
On a a personal note, I am muddling my way through these changes with my own children as we “social distance” at home.  Here is what I have learned:
  • It is really tough for kids to understand why we have to be stuck at home if we are not sick.  Here is a video made by kids, for kids, to explain:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ex4H6n_s7w
  • It is important to keep routines and schedules that include some learning time, some fun time, and some down time.  Here are some same schedules from DPS – they are so helpful! https://www.dpsk12.org/coronavirus/#familyresources
  • Take good care of yourself!  Parents need down time too.
We miss seeing all of you each day!  We will continue to communicate and do what we can to continue our learning in the midst of these unprecedented times.
Be well,
Susan Miller-Curley
Assistant Principal
Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment

DPS has announced: 
No In-Person Classes through April 17

We are an ECE through 5th grade elementary school located at 1151 Newport Street.  We would like to encourage all families from Montclair and surrounding neighborhoods to consider our school for the 2020-21 school year.  Below is some information about what makes Montclair such a great school!

  • Montclair is proud to be an innovation school!  Curriculum is carefully selected to meet the needs of our students.  Paired with a school wide enrichment model that ranges from art to engineering, we strive to bring learning to life!
  • Montclair strives to create a global perspective valuing family and community by hosting social and educational events throughout the year that represent the multicultural school community we have.
  • Montclair understands the importance of personalized learning for all scholars and has received a four year grant to become more impactful with our plan for nurturing our students’ individual academic progress.
  • Montclair is home to 22 different languages and is one of the most diverse schools in the city. Families, students, and staff members of different cultures and backgrounds interact together daily. As a school community, we work to build tolerance, empathy and friendships across socioeconomic, racial and ethnic lines.

In addition to the points above, we put strong emphasis and energy in to:  providing lots of enrichment and after school programs, focusing on the needs of our many English language learners through our ELA department and our TNLI (Transitional Native Language Instruction) program, and parent and community engagement.

We will be accepting students who live within the Denver Public Schools neighborhood boundary, and also accepting students who live outside of that boundary.  More information about the SchoolChoice process can be found at SchoolChoice.
