2021 Updates

posted Dec 31, 2020, 8:57 AM by Tobie Jones

Happy New Year!  I am sharing some updates.  The Boys & Girls Club will be closed until February 1, 2021.  Commerce City Schools will reopen to students on Tuesday, January 5.  Our employees will report on Monday, January 4.  Our plan is to continue with in-person instruction through May 21, 2021.  For in-person instruction to continue, we will need a reserve of substitutes.  Since our alumni are returning to their normal schedules in January, we know that we will need as many substitutes as possible.  If you are interested in becoming a substitute, please contact Joy Tolbert at joy.tolbert@commercecityschools.org.  Thanks for your continued support of Commerce City Schools!  Go Tigers!

Dr. Joy Tolbert, Superintendent
