Our Community's Roadmap to Re-opening
The first day of school is Thursday, Aug. 27!
On Tuesday, June 9, the Mapleton Board of Education unanimously approved a resolution in support of reopening Mapleton's schools on Thursday, Aug. 27, with in-person five-day a week instruction while also offering students the option to enroll in Mapleton Online, a new K-12 online school that will focus on standards-based, project-based, and individualized learning. To assure that all schools are prepared for in-person learning, Mapleton will use the latest guidance and precautions to protect the health and wellbeing of students and staff. For more information on Mapleton's plan to reopen, please read our Roadmap to Reopening.
After listening and gathering feedback from our families, Mapleton determined it is best to offer our families a choice of two learning options for the 2020-21 school year: in-person learning in a Mapleton school or online learning through Mapleton Online (K-12).
Students attend school five days a week in person at their small-by-design schools of choice.
Students attend school five days a week at home in a virtual learning environment supported by Mapleton teachers.

As the situation evolves, we are continuously monitoring this information and adjusting our plans accordingly. We are sharing these preliminary plans with the understanding that as we get closer to the first day of school in August, plans could change based on conditions.
Maximize group distancing to slow transmission chains
• Organize students with specific staff in cohorts or “families” for extended learning times.
• Keep cohort groups as distinct and separate as possible and limit movement between cohorts.
• Staff will remain with one cohort or family as much as possible, minimizing the number of students and staff individuals interact with throughout the school day.
• Avoid large groups and gatherings, both in and outside of school.
