As long as the building is closed, we can not host visitors. We will offer provisional admission to candidates who meet the other components of school’s admission criteria (link to admission criteria at the bottom of the Admission Overview page). This will allow students to start school on time and as soon as it is evident that the student is thriving at Denver JDS, the provisional status will be lifted.
We are planners and are working on several contingency plans for different fall scenarios. All of them are driven by what is in the best interests of our students and families to ensure maximum cognitive growth and social emotional support. To learn more, register for our virtual event “Let’s Get Real About the 2020-21 School Year” Registration details coming soon...This event will also be recorded and posted on the website for viewing any time.
We have implemented a robust Remote Learning program that was ready to open as soon as our Governor ordered school closures. We began designing this in February when the possibility of school closures during COVID-19 was raised. Remote Learning at Denver JDS utilizes several platforms including See Saw (K-2), Flipgrid (K-5), Google Classroom (3-12) and Zoom (K-12). In the Lower Division Remote Learning is primarily asynchronous with weekly real time optional opportunities including Tefillah, group chats with classroom teachers, and check-ins with our behavioral specialist and school counselor. In the Upper Division, learning is synchronous four days a week. One day is reserved for advisory check-ins and teacher office hours to promote social emotional health and preserve the student teacher relationships that are foundational to our student success.
We are currently offering rolling admission on a space available basis. Contact the admission department to inquire about space in a specific grade at email@example.com. As soon as your application is completed, we will review it and respond.
