As of 9/20/2021, we are requiring masks. We will continue to monitor numbers and will use the metric of positivity rate being below 5% in the community for 2 weeks to rescind our requirement of masks. Please fill out this medical exemption form if there is a good reason that your child cannot wear a mask.
At Home Screening
Parents and students can help alleviate the potential of school quarantines through your continued support of screening your kiddos for COVID- 19 symptoms before sending them to school every day. It is important that you keep your student(s) home if they are having any symptoms and work with our health clerk to determine when your student can come back. We will use the linked “Return to Learn” guidance to help us evaluate and make decisions regarding individuals who present with COVID-19 symptoms.
In the event of a positive or probable exposure to COVID-19, we will continue implementing contact tracing and target quarantines as needed, with the goal of quarantining the least number of students possible based on updated Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) recommendations. Individuals who meet the following criteria will not need to quarantine in the case of an exposure:
- Those who are fully vaccinated (two-weeks out from the last vaccine dose)
- Test-confirmed infection in the past 90 days
- Both parties wearing a mask at the time of exposure
If your student is quarantined due to a positive or probable exposure, we will work with families to determine the appropriate return date based on their level of exposure which could be as long as 14 days, but as few as 7. Please see further information here.
