Boulder JCC Building to Remain Closed Until May 22

Dear Boulder JCC Community, 

On April 21, our Board voted to keep the Boulder JCC building and the Early Childhood Center facility closed through the remainder of the school year, May 22. 

This was a very difficult decision for our leadership and Board. You may have heard that on April 20, Governor Polis announced that the state would be moving from Stay at Home to Safer at Home. At the moment, most if not all Colorado school districts have made the decision to continue remote learning through the end of the school year, including BVSD, which made their announcement earlier this week. And, some have already decided to close their buildings for the entire summer. While the Safer at Home guidelines allow for the reopening of childcare centers with strict precautions, our school is very large, and we are working with our local health authorities to establish proper protocols to reopen under their guidance. 

We have been dedicating significant time and energy to develop our plan to reopen each aspect of our building, whenever that may be practical and possible. This includes analyzing new procedures that need to be put in place, ensuring we have the right safety equipment, and more. We continue to work through this complex process in order to be prepared when the time comes. 

We continue to do our best to communicate as quickly and transparently as possible. We are heartened by the strength of our community, knowing we will be navigating this situation together.
