A trio of Weld County High Schools are headed back to remote learning starting Tuesday (Nov. 10).

The Greeley Tribune reports that Windsor, Roosevelt and Valley High Schools will move back to 100% online classes due to rising COVID-19 cases and the amount of staff in quarantine.

District 6 Superintendent Deirdre Pilch told the board of education on Monday that the district has 55 people quarantined at 30 campuses, affecting more than 1,700 individuals.

The one that REALLY hits home for our family is Windsor High School, who is making this switch because there are more teachers in quarantine than can be filled with substitutes. WHS will make the switch to remote learning on Tuesday and roll with that through the Thanksgiving break, going back to the hybrid schedule on Nov. 30.

Free meals will be provided to students in quarantine. To request meals for pick up, please send an email to covid.meals@weldre4.org and provide the student’s name and school.

As for Roosevelt High School, the school closure will extend through the Thanksgiving break but will not effect the Roughriders football games and other open gym activities, where masks will be required (except for football players while playing).

Valley High School will only be closed to in-person classes through Nov. 13. The school reopens for in-person learning on Nov.17 for Hybrid A and Nov. 18 for Hybrid B.

This week the Weld County Department of health reported some pretty alarming numbers, with a two-week positivity rate of over 11% with 511 new cases.

When all of this is over, I think ALL parents and teachers need to go on a vacation (away from the kids) and just breathe. Meanwhile, the grandparents can enjoy some nice bonding time since they weren't able to hang with their grandkids for so long, so... it's a win win for EVERYBODY.  Stay safe out there.
