RMP at Home

As of Friday, September 11, based on the latest health data and feedback from the community, Rocky Mountain Prep will be bringing back students to in-person learning over the coming weeks using a phased-in approach. The current plan for RMP students to return to school for in-person learning is:

  • Monday, September 14: Pre-K students return (all campuses)

  • Wednesday, September 30: Kindergarten students (all campuses) and students in our MI center at Creekside return

  • Wednesday, October 7: 1st-grade students return (all campuses)

  • Wednesday, October 14: 2nd-grade students return (all campuses)

  • Beginning Wednesday, October 21: 3rd through 5th-grade students return (all campuses)

We’ll be working hard to safely and gradually welcome all students back into schools. A fully-remote option will continue to be an option for all of our families even after mid-October.


For those continuing to participate in remote learning, students will receive instruction in English, math, specials, and social-emotional learning. The day will be a combination of a live virtual instruction block (“synchronous learning”) and a block of on-your-own learning (“asynchronous learning”). Students will be divided up into either a morning block or an afternoon block for their schedule.

Students use one central website throughout the day to navigate their schedule and participate in live lessons with their teacher. Students and families can access that site at RMPatHome.org.

Our families are our most important partners in scholar learning at home. We believe creating clear expectations that honor different structures and circumstances is incredibly important. When your teacher calls to support your scholar, please ask any questions that will help you set this up!

Morning block students will be in school from 8:30am - 3:30pm. 

The morning block schedule will be as follows:

  • 8:30-11:30:  English & math with the teacher via Zoom
