Jeffco Announces Remote Learning Will Continue Through End of School Year

On Wednesday, April 1, Colorado Governor Jared Polis extended the state-wide suspension of in-person instruction at all public and private schools through April 30 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. School districts have been encouraged to work with their local county health departments for further guidance on how to proceed.

After consultation with Jefferson County Public Health and in coordination with other districts in the metro Denver area, Jeffco made the difficult decision to suspend in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This announcement email from Jeffco was sent to families on April 3rd. We will continue on our path delivering remote learning for students and remote work for staff through the end of this school year, 2019-2020.

GHS Remote Learning Plan
Remote Learning Schedule → Students will log into their classes (i.e. Google Classroom, Schoology, etc) between 9:00am - 3:00pm. Students do not need to log into classes in a sequential order during that time frame. In other words, if students start with 4th period at 9:00am, that is okay. Students should focus on work for the periods assigned to each day.

→ Teachers will be online to support student learning. Students can email, send messages through google meet, etc.

GHS Testing Schedule Spring 2020 Spring 2020 testing College Board Update for May 2020 AP Exams

Your health and safety are our top priorities. We know the coronavirus has created new and unexpected challenges. Here’s how the AP Program is supporting you and your school: we’re providing free, live, and on-demand AP courses and developing a new at-home testing option. For each AP subject, there will be two different testing dates. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing information will be available by April 3. Free resources will be available through exam day to help you get ready. While we encourage you to wait until closer to the test to decide, any student registered for an exam can cancel at no charge.

See the link below for information on how to study and for the AP exam schedule. If a student decides to cancel their exam(s) and receive a refund they are able to do so, however the College Board has not communicated with schools yet on how this will work. Until the College Board notifies us of how to cancel an exam students should email Sarah Julias requesting cancellation.
