COVID Update – Tuesday, Sept. 28 – Fifth Grade Exposure Update

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Fifth-Grade Families,

We are writing to provide our fifth-grade families with an update on the fifth-grade exposure notification that we sent out yesterday. We received word that due to a clerical error the test results were entered incorrectly in the patient’s health portal and the student is not COVID positive.

The student has been cleared by Tri-County Health Department to return to STEM for in-person learning. We apologize for miscommunication and we look forward to seeing all of our students for in-person learning at STEM.

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.

If your student is sick or you are keeping them home out of an abundance of caution, please remember to call our attendance at 303-683-7836. Parents of Elementary students can also reach out to their student’s teacher to let them know that their student will be out.

At this time, there will be no synchronous instruction that will take place for students who are absent. Students will have two days for every one day they are absent to complete their assignments and check in with their teachers.

Please note: Extended absences start on the 11th school day that a student is absent. If an absence continues past 10 days, parents will need to complete the Extended Absence form.

Please reach out to with any questions.

Thank you,

STEM School Highlands Ranch Communications
