CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE FOR RMP FAMILIES

March 10, 2020
By admin
Coronavirus image

Last updated June 4, 2020

As of Friday, April 3, all DPS and APS schools have suspended in-person learning through the end of the school year.

This means that all Rocky Mountain Prep buildings will be closed until the start of the 2020-21 school year. While we will be unable to resume in-person classes, we will continue remote learning through the end of this academic year. 

Be sure to check out the remote learning section on our website with sample schedules, links to online learning platforms, and tech support resources.

If you can’t find the answer to a question on our website, please talk with your child(ren)’s teacher so they can help you find the best person to answer.

 

Through Revolution Foods, RMP will be offering free meals to ALL children in the community, ages 1-18, through the summer. Families can pick up three meals at a time (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) at RMP Berkeley, RMP Southwest, and RMP Fletcher.

We will have food available for pick up on weekdays from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm. RMP Creekside families are encouraged to pick up food at nearby Place Bridge Academy. (See information below on Denver Public Schools pickup sites.)

Denver Public Schools will offer free meals on weekdays to all Denver students at locations throughout the city, using a grab-and-go style system. Details are available on the DPS website.

Aurora Public Schools will also be distributing free breakfast and lunch to ALL children 18 and under. These meals will be provided on weekdays at 15 locations. Both meals, which include vegetarian options, will be available together for pickup through a grab-and-go system. More information on those meals is available here, and a map of sites is available here.

Chalkbeat Colorado has also created a Google Map of all the locations in the metro area that are giving out food while the schools are closed.

If you are looking for additional resources (internet access, childcare, etc.) during this extended break, please view our family resource document here.

Please note: RMP has not screened any of these resources or organizations fully. This list is intended as a starting point of potentially helpful resources depending on an individual’s needs. This is also a living document - we will be actively updating the document as we identify different resources for families.

The CDC and CDPHE will continue to be the best sources for the most up-to-date information on COIVD-19. DPS also has a number of frequently asked questions with answers available on their websiteWe strongly encourage everyone to continue to act on prevention steps that health officials strongly urge us all to take to prevent the spread of this virus:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

We recognize that this may be a stressful time for children and their families. Knowing important information about the outbreak and learning how to be prepared can reduce your stress and help calm likely anxieties. A resource for parents and families is available here as you think about how to plan for your family and talk with your child(ren) about this disease.

Our diversity as a community and warm, loving environment are two of our greatest strengths. Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of race or ethnicity, so please do not allow this issue to give rise to discrimination based on fear, perception, and stereotypes. Thank you for everything you do to ensure the health of your child(ren), families, our staff, and our overall community.
