At West Early College our students’ health, safety, and educational development are our top priorities. As COVID 19 cases are continuously monitored in the Denver area Denver Public Schools has decided to begin Hybrid Learning for 2nd Semester (Quarter 3 & 4) in January. During Hybrid Learning some students will continue Remote Learning from home and some students, those who have selected In Person Learning, will return to the school building. If you would like to change your selection please contact the WEC Main Office @ 720-423-5370.
If you have opted for in person learning for yourself or your student, they will continue remote learning until Tuesday January 19th for Middle School students and Monday January 25th for High School students. To be clear students are NOT to return to the building until Jan. 18th – Middle School and Jan. 25th – High School.
West Early College is preparing for Hybrid Learning by slowly and intentionally welcoming in-person learning students back to the school building while continuing to support remote learning students without interruption. In-Person learning students will be at the school building ONLY on Monday and Tuesday until February 5th. On February 8th West Early College may increase in-person school days from 2 per week (Mon. & Tues.) to 4 per week (Mon. Tues.. Thurs. Fri.) depending on DPS and Denver health and safety guidelines. Communication related to increasing Hybrid Learning and In-Person opportunities will be made available as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns please call our main office at 720.423.5370.
