Jeffco Public School is considering the possibility of resuming full-time face-to-face learning for middle and high school students before the end of the spring semester. But many students don’t think it’s a good idea.

Approximately 1,500 students, parents and teachers filed a petition with the district school board on Monday, advocating waiting until August to start a 100% face-to-face model at the secondary level. The school board will discuss this issue at a special meeting on Tuesday at 1:00 pm.

Currently, grades 6-12 in Colorado’s second-largest school district participate in a hybrid schedule of students attending face-to-face classes two days a week. On Friday, all students will complete their work remotely.

Lakewood High School junior Morgan Fritzlar has begun petitioning with fellow students Spencer Wilcox and Campbell Preston, worried about what it would be like to resume full-time face-to-face instruction. ..

Currently, about 15 people are attending each Fritzlar class. She said there wouldn’t be enough room for social distance if the class returned to full size.

“Because there are so many people in school, it is more likely to occur and can return to 100% remote (learning), which reduces the overall quality of education and the mental health of the students. Is shown, “she says. ..

Fritzlar feels she’s finally used to the hybrid learning routine. She said it would be “very difficult for a child” to confuse the routine.
