Q3 Return to School Letter
Dear Florence Crittenton High School Community,
We are happy to announce that we are still scheduled to return students to in-person classes on Tuesday, January 19. Please remember that only the students who chose in-person learning on the survey will be able to come to the school building for classes. Students who chose remote learning, or who did not complete the survey, will continue to learn 100% from home. We will be transitioning to our “hybrid” schedule on that date. Students’ classes will not change. However, the times when those classes are held during the day WILL change, so please review the schedule below carefully. Monday through Thursday each week, students will attend in-person classes from 7:40 a.m. until 11:40 a.m. only, and then will pick up a grab-and-go lunch (if desired) and leave the campus at lunchtime. Fridays will continue to be fully remote days, and so students will not come to campus on Fridays. Some students will be allowed to remain on campus Monday-Thursday in the afternoons, and on Friday mornings, if they have signed up for the Learning Center. Only students who have signed up for the Learning Center will be permitted to stay on campus at those times (more information about the Learning Center is available below).

Through a unique public-private partnership, Denver Public Schools and Florence Crittenton Services provide on-site high school academics, after-school tutoring, and post-secondary readiness to pregnant and parenting girls ages 14 to 21.
New mothers receive at least six weeks of homebound academic and social-emotional support while on school maternity leave. In addition, teen mothers enrolled at the high school are able to participate in concurrent enrollment college courses, allowing them to take remedial coursework and first-year classes while still receiving the social-emotional support and child care from Florence Crittenton Services which helps them to succeed.
The high school has a state-of-the-art STEM classroom and a Certified Nursing Assistant program with paid internships. It also has a new gymnasium with safe and appropriate fitness equipment for pregnant and parenting students for physical education classes as well as after-school opportunities for the whole family, including yoga, playgroups, and dance classes.
