COVID Update – Monday, Aug. 16 – First Grade

Monday, Aug. 16, 2021

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch First-Grade Families,

We were notified today that a student and a staff member in the first grade have tested positive for COVID-19. Both were instructed to move into isolation and not to return to school until symptoms have gone away. The last date that the student was in school was Friday, Aug. 13. The last day that the staff member was at STEM was today, Monday, Aug. 16.

At this time, STEM will not be conducting contract tracing and will not be requiring quarantining, other than the COVID-positive student/staff member. We are asking families to keep any student home who is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.

It is at the family’s discretion if they would like to keep their student (who is not COVID positive and not showing any COVID symptoms) home from school, however, we do ask that they please follow the proper attendance procedures by calling the attendance line. We want all COVID positive students and staff to remain at home.

Please reach out to communications@stemk12.org with any questions.

Thank you,

STEM School Highlands Ranch Communications
