2020-2021 Reopening Plan Response Levels

In light of the first portion of the year some amendments have been made to the sustainability plan as of November 15, 2020. The continuum of programming is now based on in-person learning being offered to ALL, SOME, or NONE of the students based upon COVID response from Chaffee County Public Health.

ALL

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

 

SOME – CURRENT LEVEL

If a positive case is identified within the school system that school will pause in-person education in order to allow public health to time to perform contact tracing and issue quarantine protocols where necessary. Then the school will reopen to SOME students who are not asked to quarantine by CCPH.

 

NONE

Facilities will be closed for in-person learning and all education will return to home based learning. NONE of the students within the district will be on campus for in-person 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.”
