• COVID-19 Symptoms

    For any questions about COVID-19, please reach out to Ryan Baker, the Thompson School District COVID-19 Coordinator, via email at ryan.baker@tsd.org or text (970) 698-1701.

  • If your child has any potential COVID symptoms, please keep them home.

    Parents and guardians can use these symptom checklists to determine when to keep their child at home. School staff can also use this tool to determine if they must stay home. Any student or staff who tests positive for COVID-19 should not go to school and should isolate according to public health recommendations, regardless of current symptoms or vaccination status.

    This symptom screen refers only to new symptoms or changes in usual symptoms. A student or staff member should only be kept home for symptoms of a chronic condition that are worse than usual. These guidelines are in addition to your regular school guidance. For example, a child with vomiting should not attend school based on school guidance.

    If you or your child are experiencing any potentially life-threatening symptoms, please call 911.
