Dear Sierra Families:
We are extremely excited to enter into a new year with you and your student. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we coordinate schedules and make alterations to comply with El Paso County Health and create a safe learning environment for our students.
As Harrison School District 2 transitions to bring students back to in-person learning, Sierra High School will begin the school year with all students working online as eLearners. Classes will begin on Thursday, January 7, at 8:30am. All classes will be streamed live through Microsoft Teams. Please be sure your student is logging in daily and attending their classes on Teams to receive direct instruction from their teacher.
January 7, 2021 – January 15, 2021
Live Instruction on Microsoft Teams starting at 8:30am
On Tuesday, January 19, Sierra High School will begin the transition to in-person learning by grade level. As we transition, we will revert to our regularly scheduled start time of 7:40am. Grade level students who are not transition in-person will continue to attend live-streamed classes from home on Microsoft Teams following the 7:40am start schedule. Freshmen and Senior students will attend in-person Monday through Friday beginning the week of January 19, 2021. Sophomores will begin in-person attendance on Monday, February 1, 2021 and Juniors will begin in-person February 22, 2021.
Harrison School District 2 and Sierra High School will continue to work closely with El Paso County to monitor numbers and the Color Dial to ensure we follow recommendations as we transition students back to in-person learning.
