Dear Montrose County School District Parents and Guardians,

This afternoon our Return to Learn plan will be published and distributed to our Board of Education, parents, teachers, staff and community. You can access the dedicated Return to Learn website at the following link, which contains the complete English / Spanish plan, as well as an FAQ section, health and safety annexes, related documents, resources, videos, and more. 

I want to thank the many parents, teachers, and community members who collaborated with us to create this plan.  I hope when you read the plan you will see that we listened. Whether you attended the Community Focus Group sessions, submitted comments via surveys, through email or social media messages, we heard you!  

Because the opening of schools is so personal and is met with a wide variety of perspectives, we knew that our plan must have choices and be agile.  We also know that the Coronavirus situation is continually evolving and changing.  As changes occur, we will make every effort to communicate clearly and swiftly so that you are accurately informed.  

Whether your family decides to participate in online learning or in-person learning, our teachers and staff are ready to welcome back our students and will continue to create environments that are warm, safe and encourage positive community building.  Social distancing does not mean we have to be anti-social.  There is a lot of information to absorb within this plan.  If you have questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to let us know.  These are difficult times and these are difficult decisions.  We are here to help!

Thank you for your continued support!

Take care,

Dr. Carrie Stephenson
Montrose County School District Re-1J

What's New

MCSD Return to Learn Plan

Hello Oak Grove Families,


The MCSD Return to Learn plan has been released.  Please make sure you look through it carefully!  Oak Grove will share our school specific plan with you by August 14.  In order for us to do that, though, we need you to participate in the parent SURVEY that is linked to the district plan!  We need to know how many students to plan for online and how many to plan for in-person.  Our plan will include new policies and procedures this year, covering things like drop off, transportation, breakfast and lunch, recess, classroom cleaning, schedules for online and in-person, visitors, PPE expectations, technology platforms and general curriculum information.  Class lists for in-person learning will also be available at that time. 

We are excited to welcome everyone back, both online and in-person!  Although this year will look different in many ways, what remains unchanged is our dedication to providing a quality education in a caring environment! 


We will see you soon, Mustangs!

Please review Return to Learn plan and complete survey above by Aug 5th.
