Grand Junction, CO - We’ve been blessed to be the largest school district in Colorado to remain open throughout the 2020-21 school year, but not without a great deal of cooperation and willingness to adapt to change. I again want to thank all of you for getting us to this point, and hope that increased access to vaccines will help us regain some normalcy and comfort in the months ahead. For the latest information about COVID-19 numbers in District 51, please visit our D51 Data Dashboard.


Watching School Board meetings

D51 School Board meetings are now streamed live on video broadcast site Vimeo.com. Live meetings can be found on the D51 Vimeo channel (vimeo.com/mcvsd51), and all recorded meetings can be found on one dedicated part of the channel here. This change will not only offer a streamlined way to easily find videos, it’s also more equitable for those who don’t use Facebook. No account is required to watch Vimeo, and there’s a free app if you would like to download it.

Community Vaccination Clinic at Central High

Marillac Clinic will be offering 1,600 COVID-19 vaccine appointments for the Pfizer vaccine every Saturday for the next six weeks in the parking lot at Central High School. The first three Saturdays (March 20, March 27, and April 3) are for the first dose of the vaccine, and the second set of Saturdays (April 10, 17, and 24) are for the second dose of the vaccine. At the moment, the vaccine is available for community members aged 50+, or community members aged 16-49 with one or more higher-risk medical conditions.

Next week is Spring Break for all D51 schools. I hope you all take advantage of the sunny weather we’ve been having, and enjoy a much deserved break with your families. We’ll see you on Monday, March 29!
