Remote Learning, Volunteering and Opportunities 

Find the information about COVID health and safety on the COVID Protocols web page. 


alt=""Remote learning in preschool 

Remote preschool is allowed by our funders for students who need to quarantine for illness or symptoms related to COVID.  Your teacher will provide activities for you to work on with your child while they are out. If you complete activities and stay in communication with your child’s teacher, your child will be considered present and not marked absent for this time (present/offsite). ECE teachers have online learning pages where parents and guardians can find resources for their child in one place.

ECE Teacher Learning Pages


Click on your teacher's name to access their learning page. 

If your child attends a community site, please contact them for details about remote instruction.


Technology devices for remote learning

To request a tablet or Mifi for your child so they can engage in remote learning, please email or call the ECE main office at 970-490-3204. A tablet is loaned to you for the school year, and a Mifi is checked out for short periods of time that your family has been asked to not return in-person at school. 

When is remote learning an option?

  • My family has to quarantine because a family member or child is COVID positive. We have a return date, but will be out of the classroom for 5 days.
    • Yes, remote learning is an option. Use your teacher’s learning page to find activities. Make sure you communicate with your teacher as things are completed so your child is considered “present/offsite.”
  • We will be on vacation. Is remote learning an option? 
    • No. Remote learning is for COVID/symptom-related absences. It is not approved by our funders for unexcused absences such as vacation. 

Additional remote learning questions

Additional remote learning questions

  • I was exposed to someone with a positive case, and my family mentor is scheduled to come over. What should we do? 
    •  Family mentors are authorized to do virtual visits in the event of an exposure. Better safe than sorry! Please ask for a virtual visit.
