Health and safety are our top priorities. Our communicable disease protocols fall under the jurisdiction of Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE). We also reference CDC and DDPHE when resourcing guidelines.
Overall, the most important piece around illness is that students stay home when they are ill.
There are a few key reasons for keeping a sick student home:
If a student develops symptoms of illness while at school, families will be contacted and asked to come pick up their child.
While COVID is an illness just like any other, it remains in its own category regarding how it is currently managed. Colorado law requires that schools and childcare facilities report communicable diseases, including single positive COVID-19 cases, to their local health departments within 24 hours. We will report cases to the DDPHE and they may follow up with you directly.
Testing Positive for COVID
We also reserve the right to change protocols at any time during the year if guidance changes or DDPHE provides an update. We will always share updated information as soon as possible.
