COVID Update – Wednesday, Sept. 29 – Second Grade to Move into Quarantine

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Second-Grade Families,

We were notified of additional second-grade positive cases of COVID-19, that have been determined to be linked to one another. Due to having more than four positive cases, Tri-County Health Department has instructed us that our entire second grade will have to move into quarantine for the next 10 days beginning tomorrow. Students will access their education virtually.

Students can return on Monday, Oct. 11 if they do not have any symptoms and if they were negative for COVID during their entire quarantine period. If a student develops symptoms, and/or tests positive for COVID-19, please reach out to our school nurse Mallory Jimenez for further direction and information. Please reference the Return-to-Learn Guidelines for additional information on COVID symptoms.

We understand that some of our families may not have access to laptops. Our IT Department has a limited number of Chromebooks available for our families if needed. Please click here to access the sign-up form if you will need a Chromebook temporarily. Our IT Department will reach out to any families who sign-up, with instructions on how to pick-up your Chromebook.

Your student’s teacher has been informed and will provide an update via email to families on what to expect for next week. We understand that this news is frustrating and can lead to anxious feelings, but our Leadership Team at STEM would like to assure you that we are doing everything that we can to make sure that our students are safe and still getting access to their education.

Thank you,
