COVID Update – Wednesday, Jan. 12 – Secondary Exposures

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Secondary Families,

In our effort to keep you as informed as possible, we are sharing information about additional COVID positive cases that we have been made aware of today. We have had a total of three positive student cases reported, two in eighth grade and one in 12th grade. All students were instructed to move into isolation and remain there until symptoms have gone away.

We strongly encourage you to please take a look at our COVID Positive Tracking List for the most up-to-date list of student cases. This list includes the date the students were last in school.

Due to the large number of cases, we are unable to provide the individual class schedules for Secondary students who are COVID positive as we did in the Fall. We are asking all families to please monitor their students for symptoms and to take their students to get tested if needed.

As a reminder, please do not come to school with any symptoms and please do what you can to help us mitigate the spread of COVID.

As a reminder, both eighth grade and 12th grade are at Outbreak Status. Please review the previous information sent about the next steps for both of those grade levels.

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

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.

Thank you,

STEM School Highlands Ranch Communications
