Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch TSA Families,
Yesterday, you received a notification that a student in middle school TSA has tested positive for COVID. I apologize that we did not include this information yesterday, but you are receiving this message because your student has been identified as being a close contact of the COVID-positive student in last Tuesday’s middle school TSA meeting (11/2) working on the Fashion Design event. 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 meetings, 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 and participate in team meetings
If your student is unvaccinated, your student must remain at home in quarantine and access their coursework remotely. They cannot participate in team-related activities in-person until their quarantine is complete. If your student is staying at home, please call the attendance line to let us know. Your student can return for in-person learning on Monday, November 15th.
NOTIFYING STEM OF COVID-19 POSITIVE CASE
If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please contact our School Nurse, Mallory Jimenez (email@example.com) 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
