DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The Douglas County School District transitioned to full remote learning on Monday. The district announced students in preschool through 12th grade would make the switch after Thanksgiving Break.
In an email to families and staff on Nov. 12, Interim Superintendent Corey Wise said the district made the decision based on the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
“DCSD will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation during December to make further decisions about the second semester,” stated Wise. “Currently, the second semester is scheduled to resume Monday, Jan. 4 for staff and Tuesday, Jan. 5 for students. We will continue to keep families updated on our plans for return following Winter Break.”
