Masks/face coverings – All adults and students are required to wear a face covering/mask when on school grounds, with the exception of eating and drinking and designated ‘mask breaks’ outside.
Hand washing/sanitizing – All adults and students will wash or sanitize hands throughout the school day and at designated times determined by the teacher.
Symptom Screening – Each day, adults and students will be required to take part in the symptom screening process upon entrance into the school building. Any adult or student with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will need to be dismissed from school and go home and a district nurse will follow-up. We are also asking all adults and students to stay home when they are feeling ill with any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, sore throat, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, muscle/body aches, and headaches.
PUBLIC HEALTH LEVELS AND LEARNING MODELS
Jeffco Public Schools will move between remote, hybrid, and full in-person models depending on local public health determinations.
Our ability to reopen schools and restore in-person learning experiences is contingent on the people in Jefferson County, and in the state of Colorado, doing your part to keep the spread of the virus down in our state and communities. The conditions under which we reopen schools are all of our responsibility.
ALLERGY SYMPTOMS DURING COVID-19
In an attempt to limit the spread of COVID-19, it is important to promptly identify, separate, and ensure that symptomatic students are evaluated and treated as necessary. Many possible COVID-19 symptoms may be similar to common allergy symptoms and it is often difficult to tell the difference.
If your child experiences known seasonal allergies, please request a note from your child’s medical provider stating what typical symptoms your child may exhibit when experiencing allergies. This will allow the district RN to have a baseline of possible symptoms for your child and will be less likely to send your student home for suspected illness.
The medical provider must be licensed in the state of Colorado and have current prescriptive privileges.
The medical provider note should include the following:
● What the child is allergic to
● What symptoms are typical for the child
● What allergy medications the child takes to treat symptoms
Each symptomatic child will be evaluated on a case by case basis and the district RN may be contacting you for more information.
Thank you very much for your understanding and patience during this unusual time.
