COVID Symptoms

If your child is absent because they are exhibiting any Covid symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose/congestion, headache, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, muscle/body aches/chills, fatigue, shortness of breath, fever, and/or new loss of taste or smell)  please take them to be PCR tested immediately and keep your student home until you have the official results. Rapid tests are coming back with several false negatives (as occurred in several of the positive cases above) which were later found to be positive after a PCR test was administered. Please refer to the following Return To Learn criteria from the CDPHE.

Update Your Student's Vaccination Status
With COVID-19 vaccinations for ages 5+ beginning, we ask that you submit only COMPLETED vaccination cards (after the full course of vaccination) to so that we can update your child's vaccination records. Please feel free to call the school or email us if you have questions. For more information on vaccinations for ages 5+, click here.
