COVID Update – Tuesday, Aug. 17 – First and Fifth Grade

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch First and Fifth-Grade Families,

We were notified this evening that a student in first grade and a student in fifth grade have tested positive for COVID-19. The students were instructed to move into isolation and not to return to school until symptoms have gone away. The last date that the students were in school was today Tuesday, Aug. 17.

If your first and/or fifth-grade student was present today, they may have been exposed. We ask that you please monitor them for symptoms of COVID and if they develop any, to please keep them at home.

At this time, STEM will not be conducting contract tracing and will not be requiring quarantining, other than the COVID-positive student. 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 with any questions.

Thank you,

STEM School Highlands Ranch Communications
