COVID Update – Monday, Sept. 13 – SteMed Exposure

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Families,

We were notified today that a student who attended the SteMed club on Thursday, Sept. 9 has tested positive for COVID. You are receiving this message because your student has been identified as having attended the after-school club may have been exposed. You should do one of the following:

Per TCHD guidance:

  • If your student is vaccinated, your student can continue to attend in-person learning and continue to participate in team activities such as practices and games, however we do ask that you please monitor them for symptoms.
  • Students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 90 days (and completed their 10 days of isolation related to that case) do not have to quarantine and can return to in-person learning.
  • If your student is unvaccinated, your student must remain at home in quarantine and access their coursework remotely. Your student’s teacher has been notified and is available to answer any coursework questions. Your student can return for in-person learning on Monday, Sept. 20.
    • Please note: The COVID positive student (along with another COVID-positive student) was also at STEM on Friday, Sept. 10. We sent out a notification that included a list of classes. If your student had any of those classes on Friday, then they should return on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please contact our School Nurse, Mallory Jimenez ( immediately. She will then notify the appropriate STEM Leadership Team members to then initiate our communication process. Ms. Jimenez will then provide instructions on next steps.

Additionally, if your student is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, please keep them home from school and monitor them. We strongly encourage students to get tested if there are any symptoms of COVID-19.

We truly appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Please know that we are working around the clock to get answers from TCH and to then get them to our families as quickly as possible. We know that decisions like these impact your schedules so please know that we are doing everything we can.

Please reach out to with any questions.

Thank you,

STEM School Highlands Ranch Communications
