MPCS Restart Plan (Summer Updates Will Be Posted Here)

This page will be updated over the summer to provide families the latest information on the MPCS plan for school in August 2020. 

As always, MPCS specific- information will be sent via ParentSquare to our currently enrolled families. Community members should also read all emails that are sent from Jeffco Public Schools, including “Community Update” emails. 


  • We are pleased to inform you that Mountain Phoenix will reopen on Monday, August 24th. Early Childhood will begin classes on Thursday, August 20th, as was originally planned. Updated on June 25
  • Our goal is to restore in-person learning to the greatest extent possible while adhering to public health requirements. In order to open schools for in-person learning, we will need to implement certain mitigation strategies. As staff and students return to the classroom, important safety protocols will be in place to limit exposure and transmission of COVID-19. Among them:
    • 6’ social distancing will be practiced to the fullest level possible
    • Use of common spaces: cafeteria, gymnasium, auditoriums, is prohibited for large and mixed-group use
    • Staff and student face coverings are required when social distancing cannot be maintained with consideration for exceptions, if necessary, for the health and wellness of certain students or staff
    • Symptom screening
    • Student grouping limitations wherever possible
    • Regular hand washing
    • Shared items and school materials will be reduced
    • Increased building ventilation and fresh air mixture to the greatest extent possible
    • Enhanced cleaning and decontamination of buildings and buses
    • Please be aware that we will share MPCS-specific plans in early-mid July Updated on June 22
