View the specific metrics being analyzed daily to determine current level! (If one of the thresholds is being met, then the crises team will meet to determine the best course of action.)



Green – Current Level

Our facilities will be open as they have been in the past for in person education with extra precautions taken to minimize the spread of COVID-19



Should any of the metrics in the Green zone be challenged in our community, increased quarantining and cohorting strategies will be implemented requiring the community to support more remote learning.



Facilities will be closed for in-person learning and all education will return to home based learning.


“Salida has figured out how to navigate more than one crisis. We will just have to do it again. There is little information that is stable, and only one constant – we have to move forward.”

David Blackburn
