Dear Miami Yoder Families –

Today, with the support of our Board of Education, we have made a difficult yet important decision to continue with our remote learning plan for the remainder of the 2019 – 2020 school year.

While we do not have all the answers, we believe this is the right move to protect the health of our students, staff, and community while also being transparent with what we are hearing from our Governor, public health officials, and educators in our community and across our state.

On April 1, 2020, Governor Polis ordered all schools to stay closed until at least April 30, 2020, and for citizens to observe the stay at home order until at least April 26, 2020.

We believe that once the stay at home order is lifted, social distancing and limited group gatherings will continue for several weeks, if not months.

We are not comfortable to return to our school buildings while implementing these recommendations with fidelity to keep students and staff safe.

Food Service & Remote Learning shall continue through May 20, 2020

During this time and until May 20, 2020, our District will continue to offer food service for our community’s children through age 18. Our remote learning opportunities will also continue through the end of the school year.

We will continue to work on plans for some form of graduation.

Retrieval of Student Personal Belongings

We realize that some students may have left belongings at school. You will receive notification from school staff with a plan on how to retrieve those belongings.

Thank You

Dwight Barnes

Departments: Superintendent
